OS X Mavericks (Desktop, MacBook)

Apple has seeded the fourth OS X 10.9.2 beta to registered Mac developers this evening. The release comes just one week after the third beta, suggesting Apple is honing in on a final version.

The new build is available to registered Mac developers through the Software Update tab in the Mac App Store, or as a full download via the Mac section of Apple’s online developer portal


There’s no word so far on what specific changes are coming in the update, or when it’ll be available to the public. But Apple has asked devs to focus on Mail, Messages, Graphics Drivers and VoiceOver.

The first beta, released in December, added support for FaceTime Audio in Messages and FaceTime apps. Today’s build is labeled as 13C48, and we’ll be sure to let you know if it contains anything new.

    Can we get it?
    The public.

    • Dany Quirion

      BETA do you know what it means?

      • It means public testing.

      • N&LH

        Only for registered developers

      • Also for Apple Seed program participants.
        Or you can just install a pkg to convince Apple that you are a beta tester, so you can receive beta updates from Mac App Store.

      • N&LH

        Yes right

        Please make a post on this iDB! I really would like it specially to see improvements in OpenGL since as of late I’ve been playing a lot of Tomb Raider.

      • Just Google SeedConfigurationUtility.pkg. But I’m not sure if it’s legal.

      • Amateur Person

        No, it means the product is feature-complete, and available for the first time to people outside of the development organization.

        Apple’s beta test group for OS X is typically their registered developers. The only exception I can recall is back in 2000, the very first version of OS X had a “Public Beta”. I’m pretty sure they have not run a public beta for OS X since then.

    • N&LH

      Not yet, beta only for registered developers.

    Does it Support the Retina MacBook Pro late 2013 within the same build of “Full Package”?
    Coz 10.9.1 Final Build doesn’t.
    Basically My Question is, When the Final Build Arrives would I be able to download the complete Mavericks.app from app Store? Coz I Can’t Do it Now…

    • N&LH

      Mavericks run on Mac 2007, 2008,…..till today, I have MacBook mid 2012. Currently I am running Mavericks

      • Aditya Rajveer

        Its Not That it Doesn’t Support Mavericks. Mavericks comes pre-Installed.
        I Just want to Restore it but couldn’t Download full Package, and the Online Downloader of Restore Utility Can’t Seem to work, something happens every time and downloading just stops.

    • N&LH

      Go to the app store, if you still cannot download it. Call Apple technical support team

      • Aditya Rajveer

        There’s a Reason I Can’t Download it, And I Know it.

        There are 2 different Builds of Mavericks Final Release. One for other macs and one specific for Retina MacBook Pros Late 2013.

        The App Store Only has General Build to Download.
