Before macOS Sierra came about, there was an operating system by the name of OS X. Since we’re still around 3 months away from the release of Sierra, Apple has decided to continue development of OS X and finish it off right. Hence, the firm has begun rolling our the fourth build of OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 to developers and public beta testers so they can test it out and send feedback to the company. This comes just over a week after build 3 of the upcoming Mac update began rolling out.
There isn’t anything new in OS X 10.11.6. The only thing notable is the fact that more bug fixes, speed improvements, and security enhancements are present. User-facing changes and additions like Siri won’t arrive to your Mac until this fall when macOS Sierra goes public. If you wanna learn about macOS 10.12, click here.
To install the latest build of OS X for testing on your Mac, head to the Mac App Store, then the “Updates” tab. This should present you with the latest beta ready to download and install. It shouldn’t take to long for this process to complete as this build is relatively small, however be patient nonetheless so nothing goes wrong.
If we find anything new in beta 4 of OS X 10.1.6, we’ll let you know.
