El Capitan users can now download the latest OS X 10.11.5 update from the Mac App Store. The release promises to improve stability and security, and it’s recommended for all users.

OS X 10.11.5 comes hot on the heels of iOS 9.3.2, watchOS 2.2.1 and iTunes 12.4 — which are all available to download right now. Apple doesn’t tell us specifically which bugs the update fixes, but it says the update “improves the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac.”

It’s still too early to tell whether this addresses the random freezes currently being experienced by some Retina MacBook Pro owners, which have been happening since OS X 10.11.4. If you’ve noticed any changes, let us know down in the comments.

This may not be a big OS X upgrade, but we’re expecting much bigger things from Apple at WWDC next month. According to recent rumors, the company will rebrand OS X to macOSfinally introduce Siri to the desktop, and make other big improvements.
