Apple has just released OS X 10.11 El Capitan Public Beta 4 to those enrolled in the Beta Software Program. The update is absolutely free and is available to download right away.
If you're already running a previous Public Beta build of El Capitan, then you can grab the latest update directly from the Mac App Store under the Updates tab. After installation, users will be required to restart their Mac at least once for the changes to take effect. We highly recommend that you update your Mac straight away so that you get the latest bug fixes and performance enhancements under the hood.
The third Public Beta of OS X El Capitan was seeded to testers just last week, and judging by the pace of how Apple is pushing out updates to its desktop operating system in the public and developer domains, it's a clear sign that the company wants an absolutely bug free launch when its OS ready for prime time this fall. It's also worth noting here that it was only just yesterday when Apple released the sixth developer beta of El Capitan to those enrolled in the company's Developer Program.
In its current form, OS X 10.11 El Capitan is a significantly stable release, and if you have a spare Mac lying around, then we suggest that you give it a shot and see for yourself what Apple's next-gen desktop OS has in store for us. But we would suggest otherwise if you plan to use it as your daily driver, since such releases tend to be buggy around corners where users least expect them to be. For example, some users have complained that the OS drains battery on some MacBook models. You've been warned beforehand.
OS X 10.11 El Capitan Public Beta is absolutely free to download and try like we mentioned before, and if you haven't taken it for a spin already and are planning to make the giant leap, then be sure to follow our guide posted here on how to do so: Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan Public Beta – How To.
The fourth Public Beta of El Capitan is a pure bug fix and performance release, therefore don't expect anything new from it. And if we do happen to spot something which is worth the limelight, then we'll definitely bring it forth to our readers.
