Mail OS X Yosemite

Apple has seeded a new beta of its upcoming OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 this evening. The update, labeled build 14C99d, is available through the Update tab in the Mac App Store and the Dev Center for all registered Mac developers.

Today’s release comes just a week after the previous OS X 10.10.2 beta, and Apple has again asked developers to focus their testing efforts on Wi-Fi connectivity—a long-standing Yosemite issue—as well as Mail and VoiceOver.

It’s a minor update feature-wise, but its stability will be highly scrutinized due to recent conversation topics regarding the quality of Apple’s software. We’re installing the new beta now, and will pass along anything worth mention.

    How many betas have there been for 10.10.2 now? The wifi issues must really be proving to be difficult to work out. Hopefully a public release is on the horizon! I’m running the latest public beta and have been noticing wifi get better and better with each update!

      Agreed. It’s hard to imagine that if there was this much work to be done on the wifi connectivity that they didn’t catch/start working on it earlier… I have feeling that Apple is getting more restricted on time every update for whatever reason.

    • I’m on the Public Beta and before the last update, I couldn’t go 10 minutes without WIFI dropping off. It was beyond infuriating. After the last update a week or so ago, it hasn’t dropped on me yet. I think they are getting it worked out.

      It’s broadcom, they have been notorious for making terrible wifi drivers. Closed sourced ones at that.

    Is anyone having the notification dot appear on messages on the Mac even after you view it? I’ve been having this for awhile and its quite annoying.

      I’ve had this happen a few times as well, really annoying.

        Mine constantly does this. Glad I’m not the only one though.

    Unfortunately, this latest beta 14C99D break my WiFi every 10 min. My 5Ghz WiFi on 2012 13″ MBPR constantly drop with Asus RT-AC68 802.11ac AP. keep saying “Beacon Loss Event” on Console. On the contrary, 14C94B (last beta) was stable for me.
