    Apple releases fifth OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta to developers



    Apple on Monday issued the fifth OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta to developers for testing ahead of an expected release later this fall.

    Today's El Capitan beta version comes less than one week after Apple seeded its last round of prerelease software for developer assessment, a round that included iOS 9 and watchOS 2 builds.

    As release notes for today's beta 5 have yet to be published, it is currently unknown what changes Apple applied to the next-generation Mac operating system. The last OS X 10.11 beta version fixed minor bugs, but noted known problems with Photos, Apple ID and Language settings

    Developers can access the latest OS X 10.11 El Capitan build by updating through the Mac App Store or downloading from Apple's developer website.

    Apple releases OS X 10.11 Public Beta 3 to testers




    Apple today released OS X 10.11 Public Beta 3 to non-developer testers trying El Capitan ahead of its public release later this fall. The latest public beta version follows the off-cycle release of OS X 10.11 developer beta 5 seeded out on Monday.

    Prior to these off-cycle releases, Apple typically stuck to releasing updates roughly two weeks apart. Apple last updated public beta users a week ago.

    OS X El Capitan includes several performance and security improvements including better window management and a new Rootless security layer. The update also includes an overhauled Notes app, a smarter Photos app with extension support, and improvements to Spotlight including natural language search support.

    OS X 10.11 Public Beta 3 can be found in the Mac App Store for Mac users running the public beta version of the operating system. In addition to running a Mac public beta for OS X El Capitan, Apple is currently running a public beta for iOS 9 as well ahead of its release.

    Apple releases fourth public beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan




    Apple on Tuesday provided public OS X beta testers with the fourth pre-release build of El Capitan, its forthcoming free Mac operating system update set to launch this fall.

    The new public beta of OS X 10.11 comes one day after the sixth developer beta was released. It is likely that both builds are identical.

    The latest build is said to include only minor tweaks and bug fixes from previous versions. Betas of El Capitan have been released more quickly, suggesting that Apple could be nearly done with the OS X update and is only working on polishing code before a public debut.

    Still, beta releases are known to feature bugs, as one tester told AppleInsider on Tuesday that they have experienced a kernel panic with the OS X Mail app in the latest version of El Capitan. As such, testers are advised to not install El Capitan on their Mac's main partition.

    OS X 10.11 El Capitan is somewhat of a polish of last year's OS X 10.10 Yosemite update, refining things that were previously introduced. However, there are a handful of new features in the next-generation Mac update, including Split View, a better Mission Control, and various performance improvements such as Metal graphics processing.

    Apple issues sixth beta of OS X El Capitan to developers




    Apple on Monday released a sixth developer beta of OS X El Capitan, further refining the operating system as it rapidly approaches a fall release date.

    The new version is listed as build 15A244d, and should be available for registered developers through the Mac App Store's Updates tab, or else the Developer Center Web portal. No significant changes have been announced.

    The code is likely similar in character to the fifth beta, released a week ago, which made only minor tweaks and bug fixes. A fourth beta was issued just days prior.

    The quick iteration of recent betas may suggest that Apple is nearly done with El Capitan, and only working on polishing code before a public debut.

    The software will not be a major upgrade over OS X Yosemite, but will include things like Split View, a better Mission Control, and various performance improvements such as Metal graphics processing.

    Fifth build of OS X 10.11 El Capitan supplied to Apple's public beta testers




    Apple on Tuesday pushed out the fifth public beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, its forthcoming major update for the Mac operating system, scheduled to launch this fall as a free update.

    Members of Apple's public beta program can now download the update via the Mac App Store. Because it is pre-release software with bugs yet to be resolved, Apple advises users not to run El Capitan as their main operating system.

    Users can opt in to Apple's Beta Software Program at the company's website. It's available for both OS X and iOS.

    Tuesday's update arrives two weeks after the fourth public beta of OS X 10.11. The new public beta release is a somewhat strange move for Apple, arriving before an anticipated new developer beta.

    Developers remain on their sixth beta of OS X El Capitan, which was released on Aug. 3 – one day before the fourth public beta became available.

    OS X 10.11 El Capitan is somewhat of a polish of last year's OS X 10.10 Yosemite update, refining things that were previously introduced. However, there are a handful of new features in the next-generation Mac update, including Split View, a better Mission Control, and various performance improvements such as Metal graphics processing.

    El Capitan beta 7 is now ready for testing




    Apple’s fifth El Capitan public beta was quickly pulled yesterday after its release, but the company is ready to give developers a taste of the newest fixes in its upcoming operating system with the release of El Capitan beta 7.

    The seventh El Capitan beta comes over two weeks after the previous beta was seeded to developers. It doesn’t appear that Apple has added any major new features in El Capitan beta 7, however it does include numerous bug fixes and performance enhancement.

    Apple has also reseeded the 5th public El Capitan beta that brought a new colored OS X logo in the About This Mac section, which should be included in this beta build as well. Other than that most of the changes will be performance improvements.

    Developers can grab the new update from the Apple Developer Center or via the Software Update section in the Mac App Store if you already have the previous beta installed. We’ll let you know if we find any big additions once we get it installed on your machines.

    OS X El Capitan Recovery Update Version 2.0 Available for Beta Users




    Apple has released an update to the Recovery feature for Macs running beta versions of OS X El Capitan. The update is recommended for all users running OS X El Capitan to install.

    Recovery Mode allows users to boot into a recovery partition to repair, restore, and re-install OS X in the event something goes particularly wrong with the operating system.

    Labeled as “El Capitan Recovery Update Version 2.0″, the update is 484MB and can be downloaded now from the App Store Updates tab. As usual, rebooting the Mac is required to complete the installation. Presumably the update improves the reliability of the feature, as accompanying release notes state the update “includes improvements” to the OS X Recovery feature.





    If you’re having difficulty making the Recovery Update appear in the Mac App Store, go to the Updates tab and hit Command+R to refresh the available packages. Turning to the terminal is another option for more advanced users.

    The current versions of OS X 10.11 are El Capitan dev beta 7 and public beta 5, both released earlier this week.

    The final public version of OS X El Capitan is expected to debut this fall for all users as a free download.

    Apple releases 8th developer, 6th public betas of OS X 10.11 El Capitan




    Developers and members of the public who are beta testing OS X 10.11 El Capitan can now download the latest pre-release builds of the forthcoming software update on the Mac App Store.

    Identified as build 15A279b, El Capitan beta 8 is also available through Apple's official developer portal. The software is meant for developers looking to test the operating system, and is not meant to be run as the main partition on a Mac.

    For members of Apple's public beta program, a new sixth build is also available to download through the Mac App Store.

    The new betas arrive less than two weeks after the seventh developer beta and fifth public beta were released.

    Apple has a media event planned for next Wednesday where it is expected to unveil new iPhones and a revamped Apple TV. If the company sticks to its usual release schedule, OS X 10.11 El Capitan will likely arrive to the general public later this fall

    El Capitan will be a free upgrade for Mac users. It is portrayed as largely a polish of last year's OS X 10.10 Yosemite, but will gain a handful of key new features like Split View, an enhanced Mission Control, and performance improvements.

    Apple sneaks El Capitan release date into iPhone 6s presentation




    We’re all excited about the news about the iPhone 6s, so we almost missed the part of today’s Apple event where the Cupertino company spilled the release date of El Capitan, the latest version of its desktop OS.

    Senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi was onstage showing off the upcoming handset’s 3D Touch functionality with e-mail, and if you blinked, you might not have seen the part where we saw when OS 10.11 will be dropping.

    One of the (inhumanly enthusiastic) demo messages described how well the developer beta of the new operating system was going, adding, “Let’s get it out to people right away!” Below that, in bold, came the important part: “El Capitan will launch September 30.”

    We first learned about the new OS during the keynote at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Its features include the ability to pin sites in Safari for quick access, increased performance, and multitasking functionality with Split View, which lets you run two applications side-by-side on the same screen.

    El Capitan will be free when it launches at the end of the month. If you can’t wait to learn about what you’ll be able to do with your Mac hardware, check out our coverage of the beta releases.

    Apple issues OS X 10.11 El Capitan GM Candidate to developers and public beta testers




    Apple on Wednesday released a golden master candidate for its upcoming OS X 10.11 El Capitan Mac operating system to both developers and members of its public beta program, foreshadowing a wide launch expected at the end of September.

    As a golden master release, the latest El Capitan build is expected to be a final or near final software version ready for mass consumption. Apple earlier today seeded GM build 15A282c to developers before pulling it from the Developer Portal, saying a correct version would be "coming soon."

    Along with the developers, Apple informed Beta Software Program participants that they too can download the first GM Candidate after months of testing. In an email, the company thanks those who provided feedback and usage data over the development process before issuing instructions on download protocol. Members of the public beta program will find the GM Candidate in the purchased section of the Mac App Store. Clicking on the download button will download and automatically launch an installer.

    Today's GM Candidate comes just over one week after Apple issued the sixth public beta build to testers alongside an eighth version for developers in August.

    Apple is expected to launch El Capitan as a free update for Mac owners on Sept. 30.
