El Capitan

Apple is hard at work in the background making sure that the software which powers its range of devices stays top-notch at all times. In fact, it was just last week when Apple pushed out the third developer oriented and public beta builds of OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan. And right on cue, Apple saw it fit to release the fourth pre-release build for both registered developers and public beta testers this week, or more precisely, today.

Downloading the latest build onto your Mac is insanely easy. In other words, it's as easy as downloading a software update for an app you might have installed on your computer. But for your convenience here are the steps you should follow to download the latest pre-release OS X 10.11.2 build onto your Mac, provided you have a prior version already installed.

  • Launch the Mac App Store.
  • Click on the 'Updates' tab.
  • Wait for the Mac App Store to refresh and then click on the 'Update' button located next to the OS X 10.11.2 pre-release entry.

The download process may take a while to reach the 100% mark, depending on the type of Mac you have as well as the speed of your Internet connection. But don't panic, if you've done everything correctly then the update should go through like a walk in the park.

In order to grab the developer oriented beta, you must be a registered developer with Apple, setting you back $99 annually. But, if you so wish, you can download the public beta build of the software as well, which is absolutely free, and is the same as the developer aimed beta software. For complete details on how to enroll yourself in the Apple Beta Software Program and download OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan onto your Mac, simply follow our guide posted here.

Please make sure that you install beta software on devices that are not your daily drivers, as anything can go wrong during the installation process or while using the software itself. Furthermore, we highly recommend that you back up all of your data before you go ahead installing pre-release software onto your device. You never know when you might hit a roadblock while using beta software.

Developers and public beta testers are requested to update to the latest beta build of OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan immediately to reap the benefits of it.
