Can my Mac run OS X El Capitan?

09 Jun, 2015

Is your Mac ready to install OS X El Capitan?

At WWDC 2015, Apple announced the next major release for Mac OS X — v10.11 “El Capitan”. The good news is that they've kept the supported hardware for system requirements the same as for v10.10. So if your Mac can run OS X Yosemite, it can run OS X El Capitan.

So whether it's the developer beta available from today, the public beta to be released in July, or the final version that you'll be installing, the devices listed below will be able to run OS X El Capitan.
