Apple on Wednesday seeded the second betas of both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan to their public beta testers. The releases come just shy of two weeks after the initial public beta releases.
The iOS 9 beta has the same build number, (13A4305g), as yesterday’s developer’s seed, which means it is identical to that release. The public beta of El Capitan is also identical to yesterday’s developer’s seed.
iOS 9 beta testers who have signed up for Apple’s beta testing program and already have the first public betas of either operating system installed on their device can update over-the-air. El Capitan beta users can update via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store.
This beta of iOS 9 is the first beta to support the new iPod touch, and also marks the return of Home Sharing for Music. Other updates include a new look for the Handoff function in App Switcher, and a fix for the bug that prevented the volume buttons on an iOS device to act as a shutter button in the Camera app.
OS X El Capitan has so far concentrated on performance enhancements and bug fixes, with few user-facing changes, although it does offer new features, including Split View, a tweaked Mission Control, and improved built-in apps.
iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan 10.11 are both expected to be released to the general public in the fall.
