Apple rolls out OS X 10.11.4, watchOS 2.2, tvOS 9.2

Apple Mac OS X

While much of today’s main focus has been devoted to new Apple products, the brand has also released updates for its existing offerings. These consist of OS X El Capitan 10.11.4, watchOS 2.2 and tvOS 9.2, all of which are being delivered OTA.

Kicking things off with OS X El Capitan version 10.11.4, this update is Apple’s first major one since September last year. Users can now view Live Photos within the Messages app itself instead of having to switch to the Photos application. They’ll be able to tell the difference between an ordinary photo and a live one by a circular symbol on the top-left corner which plays the animation.

Another major highlight of Apple’s upgrade is support for password protection for individual notes. This feature is also presents in iPhones and iPads thanks to the iOS 9.3 software. Also on hand is the ability to import notes from third-party apps like Evernote. Finally, the tool now comes equipped with sorting options such as date created, date modified and alphabetically.

OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 also packs the facility to store PDF files in iCloud, thereby making it available across all Apple devices. It’s also fixed an issue where RAW images were opening at a snail’s pace in Photos. Furthermore, Twitter t.co links can now open in Safari, JavaScript dialogs will no longer block access to other pages, and the VIPs mailbox works with Gmail accounts.

Moving on to watchOS 2.2, the update adds support for syncing multiple Apple Watches with one iPhone and brings the Nearby feature to Maps. The brand has also worked on its glance tool which now displays shortcuts for traveling to home and work. It’s also improved the frequency with which it checks on the background heart rate.

Lastly, tvOS 9.2 introduces the ability to issue voice commands via the Siri Remote to navigate the App Store and speak passwords instead of typing them. Other important changes include the addition of the iCloud Photo Library and Podcasts app, compatibility with Bluetooth keyboards, and placing applications inside folders.
