Surprise! Just six days after releasing Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta 4, they release El Capitan Beta 5. It certainly wasn’t a typical release, as there was no new iOS 9, WatchOS 2, or Xcode 7 Betas. In fact, Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta 5 isn’t even on Apple’s developer web site just yet, so I have no release notes to show you.
For public beta testers, this means that you will most likely get Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Public Beta 3 tomorrow. We’re getting later in the release cycle, so at this point, new builds can come at any time as it’s becoming more and more stable.
How To Get Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta 5
To get Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta 5, you need to be on the paid Apple developer program, which costs $99 per year. You can always grab the public beta, but you get it a day later than us elites.
You will be given a download code that you can only use once. If you have chosen to go back to Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite or any other version, you can always go to your purchased apps where Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Developer Preview will be waiting for you.
