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.

    Man, ever since updating to this latest beta, my MBP has been a disaster! This the case for anyone else? Things are sluggish, barely work. Temp is running about 30 degrees hotter than previously and it acts like it is running some huge task when nothing is working. This the case for anyone else? Trying to apple remote desktop to this the last couple days has been beyond awful!

    I probably should have waited and stuck with Yosemite. Outlook 2011 doesn’t work and now iMovie will not connect to Theater in iCloud.

    Either I downgrade back to Yosemite or wait for both Apple AND Microsoft to issue fixes.

    Oh well….

    Many of having run with Yosemite all the way to 10.10.5 they can say they have not been impressed. Too many features that they don’t use, pretty visuals that they can’t see, a “flat” lack of contrast to distinguish features, severe stability glitches, random crashes, WiFi issues, and terrible battery drain that does not live up to Apple hype.

    Okay: 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.

    I hope Apple fixed the installation error that the package Essentials.pkg is corrupt.
