    Apple Seeds Fourth OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Beta to Developers




    Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the third OS X 10.11.4 beta and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.3. OS X 10.11.4 has been in testing since January 11.

    The fourth OS X 10.11.4 beta, build 15E49a, can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or via the Software Update Mechanism in the Mac App Store.

    OS X 10.11.4 offers a couple of new features, such as Live Photos support in Messages, the ability to password protect notes in the Notes app, and an option to import notes from Evernote, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements. Almost all of Apple's OS X updates to date have been smaller updates that improve performance rather than introduce new features.

    Fifth beta of OS X 10.11.4 update launches for public and developers




    Apple on Tuesday issued a fifth beta of the upcoming OS X 10.11.4 update, seeding separate versions for public testers and developers.

    The new beta is listed as build 15E56a, and for developers is available through OS X's Software Update feature, or else Apple's developer portal. Public testers must be registered with the Apple Beta Software Program, and should be able to download it through that website, or Software Update if they're already beta participants.

    The fourth 10.11.4 beta was released about a week ago.

    Once it's finished, 10.11.4 will enable viewing and sharing Live Photos in Messages, and creating individually secured items in Notes. It should also be easier to import content from third-party notetaking apps.

    The update is otherwise expected to concentrate on bugfixes. Testing notes for the latest beta mention iBooks, Messages, Notes, and Photos, and Apple is also known to be solving a Safari glitch with shortened Twitter links.

    Apple Seeds Sixth OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers




    Apple Monday seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 update to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, less than a week after seeding the fifth OS X 10.11.4 beta and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.3. OS X 10.11.4 has been in testing since January 11.

    The sixth OS X 10.11.4 beta, build 15E61b, can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or via the Software Update Mechanism in the Mac App Store.

    OS X 10.11.4 offers a couple of new features, such as Live Photos support in Messages, the ability to password protect notes in the Notes app, and an option to import notes from Evernote, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements. Almost all of Apple's OS X updates to date have been smaller updates that improve performance rather than introduce new features.

    OS X 10.11.4 is likely to see a spring release alongside iOS 9.3, tvOS 9.2, and watchOS 2.2, with the new software coming as early as March 21, the date of Apple's planned spring event.

    Apple supplies 7th beta of OS X 10.11.4 with support for Live Photos in Messages




    With less than a week to go before Apple's highly anticipated media presentation, Apple has provided developers and public testers with the seventh pre-release beta of OS X 10.11.4, a forthcoming update to El Capitan that will bring new features including encrypted Notes and support for Live Photos.

    Registered developers and members of Apple's public beta program can now access OS X 10.11.4 Beta 7 from the Mac App Store. It is identified as build 15E64a.

    The new build arrives one day after both developers and public testers were given the seventh beta of iOS 9.3. Most previous releases were released simultaneously, making this week's staggered rollout somewhat unusual.

    The sixth betas of OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 and iOS 9.3 were issued just over a week ago.

    New features in OS X 10.11.4 include individually encrypted items in Notes, as well as support for displaying iPhone 6s Live Photos within Apple's Messages app. Simply open a Live Photo in a preview window by double clicking or pressing space bar, then click the "Live Photo" icon at the bottom left of the open window to begin playback.

    OS X 10.11.4 also patches a bug related to opening links on Twitter via Apple's Safari browser.

    Apple releases finished OS X 10.11.4 with Live Photos, Notes & iBooks improvements




    Apple on Monday released the completed version of the OS X 10.11.4 update for El Capitan, introducing Live Photos support in Messages and AirDrop, and individually encrypted items in Notes.

    The software is available through the Mac App Store, whether as a fresh download or as an update.

    In Notes users can now also import Evernote files, and sort items alphabetically, by date created, or by date modified. In iBooks, users can sync PDFs to iCloud, making them readily accessible across devices.

    These additions are matched by changes in iOS 9.3, also released today.

    The 10.11.4 update otherwise concentrates on bug fixes, for instance dealing with slow RAW file loads in Photos, and t.co links not opening properly in Safari. Other solved glitches cover areas like USB-C adapters, Gmail accounts working with VIP mailboxes, and USB audio devices.

    Full release notes can be found below:

    Adds the ability to passcode-protect notes containing personal data in Notes
    Adds the ability to sort notes alphabetically, by date created, or date modified in Notes
    Adds the ability to import Evernote files into Notes
    Adds support for sharing Live Photos between iOS and OS X via AirDrop and Messages
    Addresses an issue that may cause RAW images to open slowly in Photos
    Adds the ability for iBooks to store PDFs in iCloud, making them available across all your devices
    Fixes an issue that prevented loading Twitter t.co links in Safari
    Prevents JavaScript dialogs from blocking access to other webpages in Safari
    Fixes an issue that prevented the VIPs mailbox from working with Gmail accounts
    Fixes an issue that caused USB audio devices to disconnect
    Improves the compatibility and reliability of Apple USB-C Multiport Adapters

    Mac owners unable to log in to Messages, FaceTime after OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan updat




    A number of Mac owners are experiencing issues with iMessage and FaceTime logins after upgrading to the latest version of OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan released Monday, with evidence suggesting a bug in the apps' account activation system.

    Mac owners have taken to Apple's Support Communities forum to report (1, 2, 3, 4) an apparent Messages and FaceTime authentication issue in OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan that prevents users from using either service. AppleInsider has also received multiple reports detailing identical problems. OS X 10.11.4 was released on Monday with various feature additions and improvements.

    The issue presents itself after installing the latest version of OS X, with most users reporting a pop-up error dialogues reading, "Could not sign in to iMessage" and "An error occurred during authentication." In other cases, the iMessage setup window seems to send user ID information to Apple's servers, but hangs without timing out.

    Since iCloud logins appear unaffected by the bug, the problem might trace back to Apple's iMessage and FaceTime control services. Reports of multiple errors within a single household or business deployment suggest a faulty node might be impacting a geographical subset of users. Circumstantial evidence supports the theory of a server-side issue, as at least one Mac owner saw login trouble persist after downgrading to OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

    The percentage of Macs affected by the issue is unknown, though reports are coming in from both users of older model hardware and customers who just purchased their computer.

    As for an effective workaround, users have attempted generating app-specific passwords, toggling two-factor authentication on and off, reinstalling the update and performing fresh installs, but a reliable alternative has yet to be discovered.

    Some forum members who contacted Apple Support said representatives are aware of the problem and note Apple engineers are working on a fix. AppleInsider reached out for clarification on the matter and will update this article when an answer is received.

    El Capitan's login issues come one day after iPad owners reported difficulty installing iOS 9.3 on older hardware. As with Messages and FaceTime on Mac, the issue on iPad appears during the account activation stage. However, the iPad bug prevents iOS from installing altogether, leaving some tablets unusable unless a system restore is performed through iTunes.

    Apple Seeds First OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Developers




    Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update to developers for testing purposes, just over two weeks after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth major update to the OS X 10.11 operating system.

    The new OS X 10.11.5 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center.

    We don't yet know what improvements the fifth update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but like prior updates, it's likely to focus on security enhancements, performance improvements, and bug fixes to address issues that have been discovered since the release of OS X 10.11.4. I'll update this post with any changes that are discovered in the beta.

    Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Developers




    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the first OS X 10.11.5 beta and a month after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth update to the OS X 10.11 operating system.

    The new OS X 10.11.5 update, build 15F24b, can be downloaded through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Apple Developer Center.

    Like prior OS X El Capitan updates, the fifth update is likely to focus on security enhancements, performance improvements, and bug fixes to address issues that have been discovered since the release of OS X 10.11.4. No obvious outward-facing changes were found in the first OS X 10.11.5 beta, but we will update this post with any changes discovered in the second beta.

    Apple Releases Second OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Public Beta Testers




    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 update to public beta testers, just one day after releasing the second OS X 10.11.5 beta to developers and a month after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth update to the OS X 10.11 operating system.

    The second beta of OS X 10.11.5 is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who are enrolled in Apple's beta testing program. Those who want to join the program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website.

    Most of the updates to OS X 10.11 have been minor in scale, and OS X 10.11.5 is no exception. The update appears to focus on under-the-hood bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements with no obvious outward-facing changes discovered in the first two developer betas.
