OS X 10.11.1 Beta 3 Available for Testing
Apple has released the third beta version of OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan for Mac users participating in the El Capitan Public Beta and Developer Beta testing programs. The new build arrives as 15B30a and continues to focus on bug fixes and improvements to OS X El Capitan.
Mac users who are either beta testing program can download the latest version of OS X 10.11.1 through the App Store Updates tab, unless they have opted-out of receiving OS X beta software updates. Registered developers can start the download of the third 10.11.1 beta from the Apple Developer Center as well.
Point releases tend to emphasize under the hood improvements to OS X software releases. The most notable user facing change brought to OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 beta thus far has been the inclusion of additional Emoji character icons, like a burrito and a taco.
There isn’t a known release date for OS X 10.11.1 to arrive to the general public, but final builds are typically released after several beta point releases have been issued. This could be a general timeline of OS X 10.11.1 towards the end of October if not sometime in November.
Users who are interested in beta testing iOS software will also find their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch have iOS 9.1 beta 4 available as well.
