OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta 6 Is Now Available To Download

Here comes the sixth beta of OS X El Capitan for developers for testing purposes which Apple has released today. One week after the roll out of OS X El Capitan beta 5 and nearly two months after unveiling the new Mac operating system at its WWDC 2015, OS X El Capitan beta 6 download is made available for those registered members of Apple Developer Program.

The update, which arrives as Build 15A244d, is now available through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as via Apple Developer Center.

Apple chose to forgo adding a bunch of new features in favor of performance and stability improvements. With few changes, though, such as a revamped Mission Control with Split Screen, pretty much focused on under-the-hood performance improvements, the OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta 5 brings with it bug fixes to optimize the Mac OS ahead of its public launch.

Behind-the-scenes improvements in El Capitan have made a number of apps and processes on the Mac much faster, and the introduction of Metal makes system-level graphics rendering 40 percent more efficient. Along with the new systemwide font, EL Capitan includes a new Split View feature for using two full-screen apps at once, deeper functionality for Spotlight, and several new features for Safari, including Pinned Sites for housing frequently visited websites and a universal Mute button that quiets all tabs.

OS X 10.11 El Capitan is available to both registered developers and public beta testers, and for the final version of it, Apple will release to the public in the fall.
