Apple releases OS X 10.10.5 beta 2 to developers


Two weeks after releasing the first beta of OS X 10.10.5, Apple today has released beta 2 of the operating system to developers. The second beta build carries the build number 14F19a and is available to testers via the Mac App Store now.

Earlier today, Apple released beta 2 of iOS 8.4.1 to developers to test. Seeing that OS X El Capitan is slated to be released this fall, it seems likely that 10.10.5 is the last update Yosemite will see. Developers currently, of course, are focused on developing for El Capitan and iOS 9, which means these more incremental updates are likely not seeing as much usage. It remains unclear, however, when iOS 8.4.1 and OS X 10.10.5 will rollout to the public.

OS X 10.10.5 beta 2 is available via the Mac App Store now and should be available via the Developer Center soon, with a full changelog, as well.

    Congrats to the new layout. I would limit the article width though on the desktop. The eye cannot focus on this huge lines and psychologically, if you’d lower the width of the lines people would think it’s more content though it is not.

    For the love of God, someone tell me where I can find a 5K version of that wallpaper that’s shown on the MacBook in the Twitter post for this article…

  3. The same update is also available to the people who are in the Public Beta Programm
