Apple Seeds OS X 10.11.4 Beta Seven To Dvelopers And Public Beta Testers

At this point in time, we're certain that the Cupertino camp will not add additional features. This is because the past few betas of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan have not contributed in additional features to the least. Probably, the seventh OS X 10.114 beta will focus on bug fixes and performance enhancements as well.

The seventh OS X 10.11.4 beta is seeded just over a week after seeding the sixth beta. Moreover, it has been well over a month since Apple released OS X 10.11.3. At this stage, the OS X 10.11.4 is in a testing phase, so maximum amount of bugs and issues can be eliminated before the final release. It seems that Apple will release the final build of its upcoming firmware update later this month.


OS X 10.11.4 beta seven carries the build number, 15E64a and users interested in checking it out can download from Apple Developer Center or Software Update Mechanism through the Mac App Store. The update is available to users who are currently members of Apple's public beta testing program.

As for some of the major features which are included in the OS X 10.11.4 update, users will benefit from Live Photos support in the Messages app. Moreover, the notes app in the mac will now be password protected and the option to import Evernote notes is also available.

Right now, the seventh OS X 10.11.4 beta boasts bug fixes and performance enhancements. However, if anything worth of major interest is discovered, we will definitely update the post. OS X 10.11.4 is most likely to see a spring release, along with tvOS 9.2, iOS 9.3 and watchOS 2.2. Probably, the release date could be as early as March 21, which is also the date of Apple's spring media event.

This is it for now, folks. Did you download the seventh OS X 10.11.4 beta? Let us know if you discovered something unusual or new in the beta update.
