OS X El Capitan Recovery Update Version 2.0 Available for Beta Users
Apple has released an update to the Recovery feature for Macs running beta versions of OS X El Capitan. The update is recommended for all users running OS X El Capitan to install.
Labeled as “El Capitan Recovery Update Version 2.0”, the update is 484MB and can be downloaded now from the App Store Updates tab. As usual, rebooting the Mac is required to complete the installation. Presumably the update improves the reliability of the feature, as accompanying release notes state the update “includes improvements” to the OS X Recovery feature.
If you’re having difficulty making the Recovery Update appear in the Mac App Store, go to the Updates tab and hit Command+R to refresh the available packages. Turning to the terminal is another option for more advanced users.
The current versions of OS X 10.11 are El Capitan dev beta 7 and public beta 5, both released earlier this week.
The final public version of OS X El Capitan is expected to debut this fall for all users as a free download.
