It’s been a long road to elementary OS 6—what with a whole global pandemic dropped on us in the middle of development—but it’s finally here.

Be in Control & Express Yourself
elementary OS is designed to be easy to use, get out of your way, and not leave the hard decisions to you.
Dark Style & Accent Color
Get ready to turn down the lights, because Dark Style is here for elementary OS 6. The new visual style is available right from the Welcome screen or at any time from System Settings → Desktop → Appearance.

Sandboxing & Portals
elementary OS 6 leverages cutting-edge sandboxing technology to enforce privacy and security protections at a technical level. In OS 6, all AppCenter apps are now packaged and distributed as Flatpaks, a modern container format that keeps apps siloed away from each other—and your sensitive data.
Noticable New Features
It wouldn’t be a new OS release without exciting new features to improve your experience, and OS 6 delivers on that front.
One of the most pervasive new features for touch screen and touchpad users is the new multi-touch support throughout elementary OS 6.
Notification bubbles now feature badge capability, enabling apps to send richer information like a visual status indicator while ensuring you always know which app notification is coming from.
The brand new Tasks app debuts in elementary OS 6, helping you tackle your to-do list whether it’s stored on your device or synchronized with an online account.
You will also get refreshed four new wallpapers that are higher-resolution, add variety, and expertly show off the new accent colors.
