Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite Beta to Developers

os_x_yosemite_round_iconApple today seeded the second beta of OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite to developers, two weeks after releasing the first OS X 10.10.3 beta and three weeks after releasing OS X 10.10.2 to the public.

The new beta, build 14D87h, is available for registered developers through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center.

OS X 10.10.3 brings several new features to Yosemite, including the new Photos for OS X app. Photos is designed to serve as a replacement for both iPhoto and Aperture, and is on track to see an early 2015 launch. Early reviews have suggested that while Photos is a suitable replacement for iPhoto, with more advanced tools and performance optimizations, it may leave professional users disappointed, at least in its initial incarnation.

The first beta of OS X 10.10.3 also brought a new emoji picker that consolidates emoji into a single page with clear labels, and support for Google 2-step verification when setting up accounts in System Preferences.

Update: Today's 10.10.3 update introduces new diversified emoji options and new skin tone modifiers for emoji, as hinted at in the previous 10.10.3 beta. There are also new country flags and updated emoji for the iPhone, iMac, and Apple Watch.

So they are just giving up on fixing wifi now? Im praying that MS finally fixes the awful trackpads on PC laptops with Windows 10 so I can finally switch and not have to worry about broken OSX releases.


Riiiiiight... because everyone knows the best way to rid your life of shoddy software releases is to join up with Team Microsoft.

Best of luck with that. :rolleyes:

We at Apple just don't give a ***** about anyone who can you use more than 5 brain cells at a time, and we're on track to dumbify every single piece of hardware/software in the near future. Soon we will achieve our goal: All hardware to receive on/off button only (it will still look cool) and all software to be supplied only with open/exit command (we'll do the rest for you automatically). Don't worry, our dumb Apple users, the future is stupid-proof and quite friendly.
Thank you,
Smarter-than-you Apple team.

The are working hard.



Bout time. iOS/Yosemite...Apple software on a whole, are a mess. Not to mention their recent push for "disposable computers" w/ no user upgradeability unless it comes in the form of a Mac Pro.

Wait, you're only using a Mac for its superior trackpad? :confused:

Just a couple of hours ago I replace Discoverd with mDNSResponder, still had WIFI issues, after I loaded them with launchctl it seems to have solved those issues.
No disconnect from WIFI, no turning off and on needed.

Common Apple, it's been almost half a year and still many people struggle with WIFI.


*mDNSResponder taken from OS X 10.9.1

Fantastic!

These one-colored bastards were the root of all evil in Yosemite: responsible for the poor UI performance and WiFi drops!

Now its all for the better, problem found - problem solved, Apple style.

Hooray for rainbow Emoji!
