Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan Beta 2

Today, Apple seeded Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan Beta 2 to developers, which means that a public beta seed isn’t far behind. This comes two days after the second beta release of iOS 9.2.1.

There’s no notable front facing features in Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan. After all, this update coincides with iOS 9.2.1, a bug fix update.

Apple still hasn’t updated their developer center to reflect this new iteration of the beta, so I don’t have any release notes to publish at present. I will update the post later.

Of course, if the release notes are anything like they were with the first beta, they won’t be very telling.

Also note that while the Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan Beta coincides with the iOS 9.2.1 beta, there are no other betas in line. There is no watchOS beta, tvOS beta, and most importantly, there is no Xcode beta. Xcode beta always gets updated for even a minor update to Mac OS or iOS, so the fact that so little has changed that it doesn’t require an Xcode update is telling.

Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan is available right now for anyone running the beta by going to the Updates tab in the App Store.
