Apple is well underway with its endeavors to iron out any bugs or other nuisances in the new version of OS X, El Capitan, ahead of its public launch in the fall. Just yesterday, it released the sixth beta of the operating system for developers to test, almost two months after El Capitan was officially unveiled.
This new beta is known as Build 15A244d and can be downloaded through the Mac Store or the Apple Developer Center. Early betas of El Capitan, which is more technically known as OS X 10.11, came with minor design tweaks, whereas more recent betas have turned to fixing bugs.
Shortly after it was formally revealed by Apple at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, we ran a major article looking closely at many of the most significant changes that you can expect in the operating system when it finally becomes available to the public.
Apple has hinted that El Capitan will be a subtle evolution, rather than dramatic revolution, of the current version of OS X, Yosemite. However, to quote from our own article in June, the new OS “does much to boost the functionality and pleasure of use associated with this ever-popular platform”, making it “far from just another Mac update”.
