  • Apple Seeds Third Beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to Developers for Testing

    Alongside the seed of iOS 9 beta 3 and watch OS 2 beta 3 Wednesday afternoon, Apple has followed up with a third developer beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan as well. It comes approximately two weeks after the second beta, which was launched on June 23rd to developers only.

    The developer beta period allows developers to help Apple stabilize the operating system as much as possible before it gets to the hands of the public, and also allows developers to get their applications ready for the operating system when it launches so that the public gets all of their applications updated in a reasonable amount of time. This provides users with as smooth of a transition period as possible.

    OS X 10.11 El Capitan is the latest iteration of the Mac OS X operating system that will be available to the public this Fall. The operating system brings a myriad of improvements to the stability and speed of the operating system as a whole, fixing the problems that users have complained about for a long time and making the operating system run smoother on older legacy machines.

    Developers can access the latest beta one of two ways: by accessing it from the developer portal of Apple's Web site, or by simply updating their release from the Updates tab in the Mac App Store. Either way, a restart will be required and it's recommended that you save all work before proceeding as not to lose any of your work.
