Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite Beta to Developers

os_x_yosemite_round_iconApple today seeded the second beta of OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite to developers, two weeks after seeing the first 10.10.2 beta and two and a half weeks after releasing OS X 10.10.1 to the public.

The new beta, build 14C78c, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and should be available in the Mac Dev Center soon.

Like OS X 10.10.1, as a minor update, OS X 10.10.2 is likely to bring bug fixes and performance improvements to the operating system. OS X 10.10.1 introduced several reliability enhancements, including improvements to Wi-Fi, but many users have still been reporting issues with Wi-Fi stability in Yosemite.

In the release notes for the second 10.10.2 beta, Apple asks developers to focus on Wi-Fi, indicating the update may fix some of the lingering Wi-Fi problems.

Had enough of the wifi and bluetooth problems, upgraded back to Mavericks, almost forgotten how much better it looks and it works.

Millions of lines of code. Millions to billions of user scenarios. Various routers and configurations.


...still a lot less variants than Windows and there are still so many glaring obvious bugs I feel that Apple just doesn't care about quality as much as they used to.

Yosemite has been really solid for me. Could use some performance tweaks but other then that it's been great

With so few variants of Apple computers out there I find it annoying they can't work out the majority of bugs before unleashing OSX on the public.

Yeah, being an early adopter is hard work. It's not for everyone.

A general release should not necessarily be considered early adopter territory. That's what the beta program is for. There's no excuse for the problems to exist this far after Yosemite is released. There's a very obvious quality control problem within Apple, and I'm sure they are aware of it, too.

I miss back in the Yosemite DP's with the (almost) consistent release dates for new updates.

This update was long awaited with the insanely irritating Chrome crash as well as other errors and issues I have encountered. It should have been pushed earlier but at the same time..

Coding an OS is not the easiest thing in the world so I bet they have fixed more than some can notice.


The Chrome crash has nothing to do with problems within Yosemite, it has to do with the Chrome team failing to check it on Yosemite. APIs were deprecated. If this latest release fixes the problem for you, then either you were updated to a newer version of Chrome or the deprecated APIs were restored. Do you know?

I'm not disagreeing - there's a lot of little things in both OS X and iOS that have been bugging me. I don't recall being this frustrated with previous releases.

I on the other hand thought Mavericks looked disgustingly cluttered and dated within about 30 minutes of upgrading to Yosemite. I couldn't wait to get all the Macs in the household on it, unfortunately I had to wait a little longer to get the (old) iMac up to date.
