El Capitan performance improvement

Apple just seeded OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 beta 2 to developers. It follows up its release of OS X 10.11.1 beta 1 back on September 17. The timing for the new beta release is of interest, as Apple is planning on dropping the public version of the free OS X 10.11 El Capitan software update tomorrow.

According to the official release notes, this beta offers stability, compatibility and security improvements.

The pre-release software also contains support for Unicode 8 and new emojis that made an appearance in the first beta of OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 and are part of iOS 9. We’ll update this post with more changes as we encounter them.

OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 beta 2 is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who have the previous beta installed and as a standalone download in the Apple Developer Center.

    I’m Running 10.11.1 but I don’t see any notification for a 10.11.2 update. What should I do?

    • Gregg

      It’s 10.11.1 Beta 2, not 10.11.2.

      • Oscar

        Right. I still don’t have a notification to update to beta 2. What do I do?

        You must be on public beta. It hasn’t released for public yet just a developer release.

      • Oscar

        I have a developers account. How do I check if I’m on a public or developer beta?

      • Aaron de Silva

        Go to your developer profile, download the latest beta and install.

      • Oscar

        This is all I see. No actual link to download. When I click Learn More, I eventually circle back to the same page.

        search for feedback in spotlight. If feedback app is appearing for you this means you are on public beta.
