OS X El Capitan beta 5 now available to public beta testers

OS X El Capitan

Precisely two weeks following the release of OS X El Capitan public beta 4 and about three weeks after it seeded OS X El Capitan beta 5 to its registered developers, Apple today rolled out a fifth beta of the forthcoming Mac operating system update to public beta testers.

People who are on the beta program can download the new release through the Updates tab on the Mac App Store.

OS X El Capitan public beta 5 contains bug fixes and stability and performance improvements. To download public betas of iOS and OS X, you must sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program here.

As with previous releases, today’s public beta is nearly identical to its developer predecessor. The recently released OS X El Capitan beta 6 is currently available to Apple’s registered developers though it shouldn’t be too long until it’s released to public beta testers as well.

Originally previewed in early June during Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference, OS X 10.11 code-named El Capitan will be releasing for public consumption this fall.
