Apple has today released OS X El Capitan 10.11.1, bringing with it a series of bug fixes and improvements—including a fix for Microsoft Office 2016 compatibility.
According to AppleInsider, this update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of a user's Mac.
Specific changes made in OS X 10.11.1, according to Apple, include:
