Apple Releases OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 to the Public

Apple has just released OS X 10.11.6 to the public, marking the sixth update to the El Capitan operating system that was first released on September 30, 2015. OS X 10.11.6 comes two months after the release of OS X 10.11.5, a small bug fix update. OS X 10.11.6 has been in testing since May 23.


The new software is not a major release, but instead focuses on behind-the-scenes tweaks and improvements. The standard bug fixes will be in order, along with performance enhancements as well. If any new features are discovered in the public release, we’ll update this post accordingly.

The OS X 10.11.6 update can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store. It is available to all OS X El Capitan users.

This is more than likely the last update for OS X El Capitan, as Apple has macOS Sierra waiting in the wings with a fall launch planned for the public. macOS Sierra will bring a plethora of new features to the desktop operating system, including Siri, and much more.
