Is Your System Ready for El Capitan? OWC Helps You Make Sure

OS X El CapitanOriginally announced at Apple’s WWDC event in June, the latest version of OS X will be available for free download Wednesday, Sept. 30. Now, it’s time to see whether you are ready to make the move to OS X El Capitan.

OWC has created a comprehensive OS X El Capitan Compatibility and Transition Guide. There, you’ll find an extensive list of hardware and software that’s been tested (or will be tested) with El Capitan for compatibility.

You can also learn about new features Apple has added to its latest OS, making OWC the best single source for all of your information needs.

Of course, you can check back with our Compatibility and Transition Guide daily, as we will continue to update the page as we perform more tests and gather more information.
