Apple Releases Second OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan Public Beta
Apple today seeded the second beta of OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan to public beta testers, just days after releasing the second beta to developers and a week and a half after seeding the first public beta. Today's second beta comes just after the public launch of OS X El Capitan.
The beta is available to those who are participating in Apple's Beta Testing program and can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.
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. The emoji are also included in iOS 9.1, which is also in testing.
Beyond new emoji, there have been no other outward-facing changes discovered, suggesting OS X 10.11.1 is a minor update that will bring bug fixes and performance enhancements. According to Apple's release notes, OS X 10.11.1 offers stability, compatibility, and security improvements.
