Apple Mail will also filter messages better like when it detects an event in the email content; it will flag the message with an “add event” note or an unsaved sender will have an “add contact” flag.

Not much? Well, these small things make a lot of difference in the productivity of the users.

Second, that popular simple note-taking app, Notes, will have a new look. Instead of two panels, it will sport three panels now: Folder, Notes, Content of the Notes.

You can also post videos, PDFs and Audio files and view them live and not as attachments anymore.

Thirdly, the split-view option. It’s pretty much like minimizing the apps and making them work side-by-side – only it’s now a feature of the Mac OS X El Capitan rather than a simple task of laying out your programs on your screen. There are shade differences to tell which app is active and which is not.
