OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 Beta 1 Out for Developers (Update: Now Available to the Public, New Features Listed)

Today, Apple has seeded developers with the first OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 beta. Devs can download the build by going to the Developer Center. There’s no word yet on whether it’s available for public beta testers.

Update: The beta is now available to public beta testers via the Mac App Store.

Interestingly enough, OS X 10.11.3 is still in beta, so right now, Apple has two different beta builds available for testing. They made the same move with iOS 9.3, which was launched in beta today as well.


When changes are found, we’ll update this post. It’s likely that there are changes made, since iOS 9.3 has brought quite a lot of tweaks and updates so far.

Let us know if you notice anything different in the new OS X build!



Update 2: Here’s what’s new in the latest OS X beta:

  • Live Photos are now available to view and share on your Mac via Messages
  • Secure any individual note in Notes with a password
  • Other tweaks and improvements
  • Bug fixes

Let us know if you find anything note worthy in the latest build!
