Apple seeds third OS X El Capitan beta to developers

OS X El Capitan

Apple on Wednesday released the third OS X El Capitan beta to developers. The new build is available to registered developers via the Updates section of the Mac App Store or through Apple’s Developer Center.

Today’s update comes roughly two weeks after Apple pushed out the second beta of OS X El Capitan, and around a month after its initial release in early June during Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference.

El Capitan does not include a ton of major new features, but instead builds on top of last year’s OS X Yosemite with a number of performance and stability improvements. There are a few user-facing changes, though, such as a new system-wide font and a revamped Mission Control with new Split Screen mode.

We are installing today’s beta now, and will report back with any major changes. OS X El Capitan is currently only available to registered developers, but Apple has said that it will be releasing a public version of the beta in July, and of course the official release is expected this fall.
