OS X. It?ÇÖs what makes a Mac a Mac.
OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac. Built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, it?ÇÖs engineered to take full advantage of what the hardware is capable of. And it?ÇÖs designed to deliver the most intuitive and integrated computer experience in the world.
Software and hardware made for each other.
OS X is built to bring out the best in your Mac, so you get a fully integrated system in which everything works together seamlessly. It works with the processor in your Mac to deliver the best possible performance. It works with the super-responsive trackpad in Mac notebooks so Multi?ÇæTouch gestures feel natural to use. Technologies like Power Nap take advantage of the Mac hardware to keep the entire system up to date while it sleeps.1 OS X gives you long battery life with advanced power-saving technologies like Timer Coalescing and App Nap. And it?ÇÖs optimized for the high-resolution Retina display in the high-performance MacBook Pro.
Easy to learn. Easy to use. Easy to love.
From the desktop you see when you start up your Mac to the applications you use every day, everything is designed to be easy and intuitive. On a Mac, it?ÇÖs easy to find, share, and do just about everything. You can control your Mac with simple, intuitive gestures. The Dock makes it easy to open your favorite apps. Launchpad gives you quick access to your full library of apps. The Finder lets you browse and organize your files with ease. Spotlight search makes locating the file you?ÇÖre looking for effortless. You can even have your apps and the operating system software update automatically. In fact, a Mac does so many things automatically, sometimes you don?ÇÖt have to do anything at all.
The Finder is a simple way to access practically everything on your Mac.
Multi?ÇæTouch, Mac style.
We believe the best way to bring Multi?ÇæTouch gestures to a computer is on the horizontal surface of a trackpad. So navigating your Mac using your fingers to tap, scroll, pinch, and swipe feels perfectly natural. And because Apple makes both the hardware and software, Multi?ÇæTouch gestures are remarkably precise. When you scroll down, your document scrolls down. When you scroll up, your web page scrolls up. When you swipe left, your photos move left. These and other gestures make all you do on your Mac easy, intuitive, and fun.
Click Press down anywhere on the Multi?ÇæTouch trackpad to click. Or, with Tap to Click enabled in System Preferences, simply tap the surface.
Two-finger scroll Slide two fingers up or down on the trackpad to scroll through documents, websites, and more.
Two-finger swipe to navigate Using two fingers, brush left and right along the Multi?ÇæTouch trackpad to navigate forward and back in Safari.
Tap to zoom Double?Çætap the trackpad with two fingers to magnify a web page or PDF.
Built for power. From the ground up.
Making powerful things simple requires some seriously advanced technologies. OS X is loaded with them. It?ÇÖs built on a rock-solid, time-tested UNIX foundation that provides unparalleled stability and industry-leading support for Internet standards. OS X takes full advantage of the multicore Intel processors in every new Mac. And the incredible graphics capabilities in OS X allow applications like Aperture and Final Cut Pro to give you unprecedented photo and video editing power.
Advanced features for power users. And everybody else, too.
As a desktop operating system, OS X offers powerful ways get work done as efficiently as possible. For example, you have multiple ways to organize and find files ?Çö whether they?ÇÖre on your Mac, on a server, or in iCloud. With Finder Tabs, you can consolidate multiple Finder windows into one, so you can access and organize all your files from a single window. And tags let you organize files so you can easily find them later by searching or simply clicking a tag in the Finder sidebar. If you like to work with multiple applications at the same time, Mission Control gives you a bird?ÇÖs-eye view of everything that?ÇÖs running on your system. And if you want to use a second display with your Mac, just plug it in ?Çö no configuration required. If you have an Apple TV, you don?ÇÖt even have to plug in because you can use your HDTV as a fully functional second display over your wireless network.
If you love your iPhone or iPad, you?ÇÖll love your Mac, too.
If you already use an iPhone or iPad, a Mac will feel instantly familiar. That?ÇÖs because OS X and iOS have many of the same apps and features ?Çö Safari, Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Maps, and more. And thanks to iCloud, the apps on your Mac work together with the apps on your iOS devices.2 Whatever you do in apps like Mail, Contacts, and Calendar on your Mac happens on your other devices, too. So, for example, a contact or a calendar event you add on your iPhone also appears on your Mac. You can send driving directions from your Mac to your iPhone. Add a meeting to your calendar on your Mac and receive an alert on your iPad. Even start an iMessage conversation on your iPhone and finish it on your Mac.
Amazing apps for everyday things.
With OS X, you get a collection of great apps for the things you do every day: surf the web, make FaceTime video calls, send messages, get driving directions, manage your contacts, send email, and more. Because they?ÇÖre built by Apple just for OS X, they?ÇÖre fully integrated into the operating system and with each other. So with just a few clicks, you can do things like view a map of an address by clicking a contact card, set up a calendar appointment from an email, or share a web page without switching apps. Because they?ÇÖre native apps ?Çö not web apps in a browser ?Çö they also take full advantage of the power of your Mac to deliver the fastest possible performance. In addition, whenever there?ÇÖs an update, you?ÇÖll get it automatically. And with the Mac App Store built in, it?ÇÖs easy to find more great apps.

Designed for mobility. Engineered for better battery life.

Security was the ?¼ürst thought. Not an afterthought.
