Apple has officially released the OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan update through the Mac App Store. The software update is available for all Macs capable of running OS X 10.11. The Mac update delivers new features including Live Photo viewing and sharing through iMessage using the Messages app as well as secure password support for individual notes in the Notes app.

Prior to OS X 10.11.4, the Mac could only view Live Photos through the Photos app and in limited situations. Starting with this version, Live Photos shot on the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and iPhone SE can be shared and viewed easily on the Mac through iMessage using the Messages app.

El Capitan also gains the new ability in Notes to secure individual notes with a single secure password. iOS 9.3 is required to view these notes on iPhones and iPads.

Speaking of Notes, OS X 10.11.4 also lets you easily import data from text files and other note-taking services including Evernote. Here’s a guide to switching from Evernote to Apple Notes.
