Apple releases OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6

OS X Yosemite (teaser 002)

Apple has released the sixth Developer Preview of its new OS X Yosemite operating system this morning. The update comes exactly two weeks after Preview 5, and over two months after Apple first announced Yosemite during its Developer Conference in June.

The update is labeled as build preview 6 1.0 and can be downloaded via the Mac App Store, or as a full download from Apple’s online developer center. It does not, however, appear to be out in Apple’s recently-launched public Yosemite Beta Seed program yet…

The previous beta brought about just a handful of tiny changes, including tweaked Volume and Brightness HUD icons, a new option in Safari to show a website’s full URL, and a more translucent UI for Calculator . There were also a few tweaks to the Settings app.

We’re currently installing Developer Preview 6 ourselves, and will be reporting back with any changes, so make sure you keep checking back with us throughout the day. If you find something not mentioned here, feel free to e-mail us at
