Apple Releases OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite First Public Beta, Fixes Stability, Security and Other Issues
Apple releases OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite beta version to public before the El Capitan finally arrives in fall. Apple is ready to get as much feedback as possible from developers as well as testers.
Few days back, the beta version for El Capitan was released for developers under the build name 14F6a, this one carries the same name. So we are guessing there won’t be major changes in this version compared to the developers’ beta version.
Before Apple finally goes through the OS update there will be loads of bug fixes and improvements. You can easily avail the update from Software Update Mechanism via Mac App Store. However before doing that ensure that you are enrolled in Apple Beta Software Program. This enrollment will let you have the update.
As per reports, there aren’t any major upgrades in the public version than developers. The OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite won’t be following any major performance or visual enhancements. However, the OS seems to have fixed stability, compatibility, and security issues.
Apple is expected to forward this version as the final update after the testers have tested the beta and notified the company about all issues. We think testers won’t miss a think, well hopefully. OS X 10.10.4 was released with iOS 8.4 on June 30 which came out with major performance improvement and bug fixes.
As to when the OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite El Capitan will be released remains unknown for now. You can download the beta version for checking it out but make sure that all your data is backed up and secure in case it crashes and you end up losing everything.
