Apple Releases Fourth Public Beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan

10.11 El CapitanThe sixth developer beta for OS X 10.11 El Capitan, which came out yesterday,  has given way to a fourth public beta, available to pre-registered testers who signed up through the Appleseed program. Both of the recent betas, which share the build number 15A244d, are said to have very minor tweaks and under-the-hood fixes, including a new General icon in System Preferences, and at least one new wallpaper. Some notable flaws remain unaddressed, however.

Last week’s beta was also followed by a public-tester version, as it has in recent weeks — suggesting that this may become the norm going forward. While testers have reported improved speed and responsiveness with both the El Capitan and iOS 9, both are still saddled with a long list of known issues and problems, with flaws involving iCloud syncing, Apple ID, language localization, Photos, Mail, and general text and graphics formatting.

Apple strongly cautions interested readers to not install beta software on a mission-critical device or hard drive, as there are known and serious issues with some of the components of the releases. The latest update is available to developers and registered testers through the Mac App Store software update section, or Apple’s developer portal.
