Apple seeds OS X Yosemite GM candidate 2.0 to developers, Public Beta 5

Mail OS X Yosemite

Alongside beta 2 of iOS 8.1, Apple has today seeded Golden Master candidate 2.0 of OS X Yosemite. The update can be downloaded either through the Updates tab in the Mac App Store, or through Apple’s Mac Dev Center by registered developers.

This marks the tenth and possibly final developer beta of Yosemite as Apple prepares to officially release the software to the public later this month. Introduced in June, OS X Yosemite brings about new UI design and several other improvements for Macs.

Additionally, Apple has pushed out Public Beta 5 of Yosemite for its testing group. With today’s releases coming just a week after their predecessors, we don’t anticipate many changes, but we’re installing them now and will report any notable differences.
