OS X 10.11 ru­mours

Mac Format - - POWER UP YOSEMITE! -

The next edi­tion of OS X is ex­pected to be num­bered 10.11, although Ap­ple could jump to OS 11. We have no idea what co­de­name Ap­ple is us­ing – it re­cently switched away from us­ing the names of big cats to ar­eas of Cal­i­for­nia. While noth­ing is for cer­tain, our first look at OS X 10.11 will be at this June’s WWDC 2015 event – we’ll tell you about that in is­sue 289.

There have been very few leaks re­gard­ing new fea­tures in OS X 10.11. Ap­ple is very good at con­trol­ling soft­ware se­crecy, and most leaks come from fac­to­ries and re­late to hard­ware. We ex­pect Ap­ple to con­tinue tweak­ing the in­ter­face and to con­tinue blend­ing fea­tures be­tween OS X and iOS (per­haps Watch OS also). The new Force Touch track­pad will pro­vide a new as­pect to ges­ture-driven in­ter­ac­tion and Ap­ple is sure to find fur­ther uses for its next-gen touch-sen­si­tive sur­face.

In­te­gra­tion with the Ap­ple Watch may also ar­rive, and it’s time for Siri to make its way to the Mac. Read about our wishes for the next ver­sion of OS X in The Miss­ing Pieces of OS X and iOS, which starts on page 78.
