Apple Seeds Third OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update to developers and public beta testers, one week after releasing the second OS X 10.11.5 beta and a month after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth update to the OS X El Capitan operating system. OS X 10.11.5 has been in testing since April 6.

OS X 10.11.5 beta 3 has a build number of 15F28b and can be downloaded through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Apple Developer Center (for developers).

OS X 10.11.5, like prior OS X El Capitan updates, appears to focus on security enhancements, performance improvements, and bug fixes to address issues that have popped up since the release of OS X 10.11.4. No obvious outward-facing changes were discovered in the first two OS X 10.11.5 betas, but we'll update this post if any new features are found in the third beta.

Beachballs? Did they fix the beachballs? What about the constant freakin beachballs on every one of my Macs running El Capitan, Apple??? So frustrating.

My beachballs are working fine here. :)

Anybody know if this fixes the "freezing" issue that a lot of Macs suffer from since the last El Cap update?

Super SMOOOTH™ on all my machines....

Especially the beachball animation. (no more flickering and the pointer INSTANTLY changes to the beachball... not the rude pause of versions past)

All these betas as stable as the last release, and I never see anything new. Sometimes I think Apple just puts and new version number on it and says "ship it!" :D (I'm sure they're fixing problems that somebody somewhere has...)

Reboot did nothing. Strangely however, NVRAM reset and reboot and all appears normal again - showing in app store again:

Yeah, we asked for Public Beta, which you claimed you had, but the screenshot is for the developer beta.

So, no one have confirmed the Public Beta yet, i don't think it is released yet

All I ever hear on MacRumors are complaints complaints and more complaints. I have a 2009 21.5 iMac and I have no trouble downloading updates. I went to MacRumors to see what was suppose to be new and all I read was more complaints. Maybe you have a PC and don't realize the update is not for you...:)


Wow, really? You're quoting me a month later and also didn't bother to look a few posts above you for the update to my month old query, which too was also posted almost a month ago. Seriously?
