OS X 10.11.4 Public Beta 2 Now Available To Download
The second Public Beta of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan is also available for download along with iOS 9.3 Public Beta 2.
OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Public Beta 2 Has Arrived. Update Your Mac Today!
Along with iOS 9.3 beta 2 which was released a couple of days back, Apple also saw it fit to release the second developer preview build of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan at that time. But today, Apple is bringing the developer-centric changes which it released a couple of days back to Public Beta testers as well, with the new OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Public Beta 2 now available to download immediately.
If you have the first Public Beta of OS X 10.11.4 installed on your Mac, then simply launch the Mac App Store and click on the 'Updates' tab. Here you'll see the update ready for your download and installation approval. You'll be required to restart your Mac therefore be sure to save all your work before making the plunge.
As we mentioned before, today's Public Beta 2 release of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan features the same changes that were pushed out to developers a couple of days back through Apple's developer portal. In other words, users can expect to see the same feature additions, such as the ability to see Live Photos in the Messages app, the usual bug fixes, as well as speed and performance improvements.
It's absolutely wonderful to see that Apple is working day and night to make sure that its software across the board (desktop and mobile both) is ticking along nicely as well as being kept up to date in terms of features. This is a trend which Apple kicked off last year along with the release of iOS 9 by releasing updates and fixes on a timely basis, while also staying ahead of the game by issuing beta software to developer and public testers regularly.
At this point in time it's unclear when the final version of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan will drop for the general public. But if past release cycles are anything to go by then it's highly likely that we'll see a couple of betas more at max before the final build hits download channels.
Developers and public beta testers both are requested to update their Macs straight away, as new updates tend to fix a lot of bugs that have been plaguing users in the prior release. Besides, you want your Mac to run as smoothly as possible under any circumstance right?
If you haven't installed OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Public Beta onto your Mac, then you can do so for free by pointing your browser to beta.apple.com and follow the steps outlined there.
