Apple Seeds First OS X 10.10.4 Yosemite Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of OS X 10.10.4 to developers, just over a week after releasing OS X 10.10.3 with the Photos for OS X app to the public.

The new beta, build 14E7f, can be downloaded from the Mac Developer Center.

It is not yet clear what's new in the 10.10.4 beta, but according to the release notes, the update "improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac." Earlier OS X Yosemite updates, including OS X 10.10.1 and OS X 10.10.2 brought only minor changes to the operating system in the form of bug fixes and performance enhancements. OS X 10.10.4 may serve the same purpose.

OS X 10.10.3, released last week, was the first major update to OS X Yosemite that brought new features, including the Photos for OS X app, a redesigned emoji picker, and new diversified emoji.

Buy a new router.
Wifi is working fine for the majority of people and has for months.


No, it's not working fine, I still have WIFI issues, also on other routers.
But, it is better than before.
YOU don't have problems doesn't mean others don't have issues.

I have 2 different model MacBook Pro's, both have been on Yosemite since 10.10.0 and never had a WiFi issue with my router or public ones.

I have been on OS X since 10.0b (yes, the first OS X release more than a decade ago) and never had WIFI issues until 10.10, that says something, no problem before on 10.9 with 3 different routers, now all of them have dropouts/disconnects so it's 10.10 which is the problem, not my routers.

WiFi has so many variables and your generalization is ignorant of that fact.

And it is not a secret that Apple rewrote WiFi and Bluetooth stacks in iOS 8.x and Yosemite to enable Handoff/continuity. As a result, it introduced many bugs, including on-going Bluetooth and WiFi issues that many people are having (that did not exist in iOS 7.x and Mavericks).

P.S. I have WiFi issues with both Apple Time Capsule (the latest version) and Asus RT-N66U. As well as Bluetooth issues.

Can't come soon enough - 10.4.3 has been very unstable for me. At random points safari stops taking any keyboard input at all until I restart.


You're still using Tiger?

Yes, and because you have issues doesn't mean others also have these issues.

As if buying a new router will fix it, wasting money on something that doesn't work, some good advice you gave in your post. :rolleyes:

I am not claiming most people have WIFI problems, I just say there are still WIFI problems and that is a fact.

I also have Wi Fi issues AND I am using an Apple Time Capsule. Like someone else said, just because some of you don't have issues doesn't mean the issue is fixed. In fact, every time I update to a new beta the issue seems to resurface, at least temporarily. My time capsule will say it is no longer part of my network and I should move closer or check my settings. I have searched the web, tried numerous fixes, but the issues persists. So, I for one am hoping Apple actually addresses it in SOME future release!
