Apple Seeds Fifth OS X 10.11.6 Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan update to developers and public beta testers, one week after releasing the fourth OS X 10.11.6 beta and more than a month since the public release of OS X 10.11.5. OS X 10.11.6 has been in testing since May 23.

OS X 10.11.6 beta 5 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

OS X 10.11.6, much like OS X 10.11.5 and the El Capitan updates that came before it, focuses mainly on performance improvements and bug fixes instead of obvious outward-facing changes. According to Apple's release notes, the update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of Macs.

No obvious changes or bug fixes were found in the first four betas, but we'll update this post should anything new be discovered in the fifth beta.

Apple has also started testing macOS Sierra, the next-generation Mac operating system set to be released this fall. macOS Sierra includes features like Siri integration, auto unlocking with the Apple Watch, Apple Pay for the web, a new storage optimization feature, and more.

No problems with changed Wifi speeds here on 10.11.6 beta five on a 2012 Macbook Air. (Not denying their problems or implying that the other posters said that their problem was universal)

This is incorrect as the public beta for OS X aka. MacOS is not yet available.


It is for El Capitan, but not for Sierra. And of course this thread is about El Capitan, NOT Sierra!
