Apple Seeds OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 Build 14C106a to Developers

Apple today seeded a sixth beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 to developers, just a week after seeding the fifth beta of OS X 10.10.2, and two months after seeding the first beta.

The new beta, build 14C106a, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center.

10_10_2_14c106a
As with previous betas, Apple asks developers to focus testing on Wi-Fi, Mail, Bluetooth, and VoiceOver. Many Yosemite users have had some ongoing problems with Wi-Fi since the new OS was first launched in October, and a November 10.10.1 update did not resolve all of the lingering issues.

Why do people keep posting sizes of updates?

Not everyone has lightning fast connection.

If you need to know exactly how many MB, you probably shouldn't be doing betas. After all, the beta could easily have a bug requiring an even larger download to fix.

LOL I've been wondering the same.

Knowing the size won't change that. On top of that the size is already displayed the in App Store. Pointless to post it here. ;)

Despite being 'free' Yosemite seems to be making some money for Apple as Mountain Lion (retailing at £14.99) is shown as trending on the UK store site :D:D:D:D

I couldn't wait for the update any longer and I moved back to Mavericks.
I didn't have any WiFi issues, but the interface lagged (even with transparency off), and in general all tasks were slower. Additionally, Airplay was randomly dropping connection and it had compatibility issues with a few important for me apps. I don't even want to mention Spotlight...

It's sad for me to say (after 8 years of using Macs), but Yosemite is a new Windows where only a restart (at least once per day) improve things for a while :(.

No. It is not pointless. It can tell you whether it did the firmware update or not, and whether it installed the patch, delta or combo.

Here are the file sizes for this build:

OSXUpd10.10.2Patch.pkg (patch) (389 MB)
OSXUpd10.10.2.pkg (delta) (509 MB)
OSXUpdCombo10.10.2.pkg (combo) (786 MB)
FirmwareUpdate.pkg (firmware update) (55 MB)

So for example, if you say you got 564 MB, that would be delta + firmware update (509 MB + 55 MB).

do some pdfs still cause preview (and the whole system) to slow to a crawl?

I'm a developer using the latest beta. It works fine. Yes, there are problems with handoff and personal hotspot but those were bound to be wanky features anyway. You can always just connect your phone to hotspot the old way.

I think the complainers are overreacting. I use my macbook air 2013 for software development, video editing, and audio production, and it works. It doesn't freak out and crash hard like the old days of OS.

For you complainers who insist on upgrading to the latest version of OS X while it's still on the .1 or .2 version and expect it to work flawlessly, I suggest you call
1-800-WA WA WA - WA WA WA WA


I hope I never need to work with you. A decent developer will acknowledge users' concerns and not mock them in such an infantile way.

I am also a developer. I have been using OS X for 8 years, and it is only now that wifi has become a total pain in the ass. Wifi in Yosemite is a major regression for many users. Do you think we're all posting because we have nothing better to do?
