OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta 4 Available for Testing
Apple has released the fourth beta version of OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan to Mac users participating in both the public beta and registered developer beta testing programs, arriving as build 15B38b.
Mac users running a current version of OS X 10.11.1 beta build can download beta 4 through the Software Update mechanism of the App Store.
If you were in the beta program before but have since opted out of seeing beta software updates, you would need to adjust that setting to find the latest version available again.
OS X 10.11.1 will likely focus on bug fixes and minor improvements to El Capitan, but new emoji characters, like a unicorn, burrito, and taco, also make an appearance in the release.
Any Mac user can choose to enroll in the public beta testing programs for OS X and iOS, but because beta system software is less reliable and more prone to bugs and crashes than a standard public release, it is only recommended for users who are comfortable with the less stable experience.
It’s unclear when the first point release update of El Capitan will arrive, but it’s likely that OS X 10.11.1 will be released to the public near or alongside iOS 9.1 when the iPad Pro and Apple TV are unveiled in the coming weeks.
