Apple Seeds Second OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X El Capitan update to developers for testing purposes, more than a week after releasing the first OS X 10.11.1 beta and one day before the scheduled public release of OS X El Capitan on September 30.

The new beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Apple Developer Center.

The first beta of OS X 10.11.1 introduced support for Unicode 8 and new emoji like taco, burrito, cheese wedge, hot dog, middle finger, and unicorn head.

It is not clear what other improvements the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but it's likely to be a minor update that includes bug fixes and performance improvements for issues encountered following the operating system's official release. According to Apple's release notes, the beta offers stability, compatibility, and security improvements.

Cue the "everyone knows you never upgrade until 10.x.47, which is where they sort out all of the bugs".

That is nothing less than mortifying. My condolences. Is there anything we can do to help you?

I'm really looking forward to this one. I want to do a clean reinstall on my '12 MacBook Pro and clear out the last three years of old apps, and other cruft. A fresh install with just the apps I need.

Then the HDD will probably die.

I guess, but pity those of us who update friends/relatives systems. We give them the new OS, go away hoping not to have to do that again too soon and... We have to do it again.


If your friends/relatives need help updating, they don't need to be on the bleeding edge of OS releases.

iOS 8.1 was being beta tested just before iOS 8 came out as well though. I'd rather quick bugfix and performance enhancement releases than not!
