  • Apple Seeds 7th OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta to Developers, Re-launches Public Beta Pulled Yesterday

    On Wednesday, Apple has seeded the seventh developer preview of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to developers for testing, along with a re-release for yesterday's fifth Public Beta release (which was later pulled) that was intended for Public Beta participants for testing.

    Today's build number is 15A263e developers and public beta participants can download the update from the Mac App Store's Updates tab right now and get started with testing the update for last-minute bug reporting.

    For developers, this gives them a chance to test their applications on the new operating system so that when it's time to release this Fall, the application's they're making will be able to take advantage of the operating system's new features and performance.

    So far, the update has been noted to include some user interface tweaks, such as an updated icon in the "About This Mac" window, and improvements to the Welcome to Safari screen.

    Because a restart is necessary to install the update, it's recommended that you save your progress in any applications you have open before you proceed to prevent unwanted data loss.

    Everyone that isn't a developer or public beta participant will get a chance to download OS X 10.11 El Capitan in the Fall, which it's released to the general public. The operating system will include new features, performance improvements, and battery life improvements, which will make the operating system more of a pleasure to use on older Macs. For a list of the most notable features to come, you can head to this page to read more.
