Apple on Wednesday seeded the third beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to developers for testing. The new beta seed comes just over two weeks after the second beta. The new OS debuted at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference back in June.
The update, build 15A216g, is available via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store, and via download in the Apple Developer Center. Apple has also released OS X Server 5.0 beta 3, build15S2175.
A number of issues remain in the new release, including issues with upgrading from OS X Lion or earlier, as well as issues with Apple ID, iPhoto, Photos, Mail, and more.
The release of El Capitan is intended as a refinement of OS X Yosemite, although it also offers new features, including Split View, a tweaked Mission Control, and improved built-in apps.
El Capitan is currently available only to members of the Mac Developer Program. A public beta will be available later this month. The final version will be available free, via the Mac App Store this fall. Customers interested in signing up for the public beta can visit the El Capitan preview page for more details.
