Apple Rolls Fifth OS X 10.11.2 Beta To Developers And Public Testers

The latest version of Apple’s OS X El Capitan has taken today to the next stage by releasing a fifth 10.11.2 beta seed to both with registered developer accounts and public beta testers, two weeks after rolling the fourth beta and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.1, and the first El Capitan update, to the public. The availability of this particular seed represents yet more progress as the Mac maker looks to find itself in a position where the newer version of the platform is deemed ready to be officially issued to the public.

The fifth beta comes attached with build number 15C48a, and carries the same extremely brief accompanying notation that we are used to seeing with all beta builds of this nature. Available through the Software Update mechanism inthe Mac App Store and can be downloaded via the Apple Developer Center. Public beta testers can get the beta through the Mac App Store.


It’s unlikely that Apple will embark on any process at this stage of the development that would see any real exciting additions added to OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan. Fifth beta appears to come equipped with more under-the-hood and internal improvements over anything else, and the Cupertino-based company is keen to cntinually progress the efficiency and performance that users receive when working with OS X, paying attention to the internal levels of the platform when being utilized on a power-limited MacBook or MacBook Air.

It’s expected to see a minor improvements that will feature a number of security enhancements, bug fixes, and internal components experience that have been fed back to Apple through the support systems that are in place for developers and testers.

Apple’s release notes for OS X 10.11.2 have asked developers to focus on Networking, Graphics, Mail, Wi-Fi, Calendar, USB, Notes, Photos, and Spotlight, as well as a number of native apps like Reminders.

New beta arrives as build 15C48a and continues to focus on improving reliability and compatibility of OS X El Capitan

As always, this latest beta is available as an over-the-air update inthe Mac App Store for existing testers and from Apple Developer Program portal for those installing for the first time. Enjoy!
