Apple releases second OS X 10.11.1 seed to public beta users

El Capitan Notes

Apple has followed this week’s release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 beta 2 to developers with a public version of the pre-release software. The second seed doesn’t include any notable changes, though it does come with the new emoji icons that were added in the first build.

Users on the public beta can download the latest build from the Updates tab of the Mac App Store. Users who want to participate in the public beta can apply on Apple’s beta website.

Apple also released the public version of OS X 10.11 this week, along with iOS 9.0.2 and a new beta version of iOS 9.1.

    I’m on the 10.11 beta, and neither the 10.11.1 beta nor the 10.11 release show up for me. Odd, that.

      Same here. I am on 10.11 Beta 6
      10.11.1 betas don’t show up at all

        Not clear from your post but you have to be on the Public Beta, not the developer. That’s available through

        Turns out I needed to forcefully download the 10.11 realease, and install it over a warning that 10.11 was already installed. After that, the 10.11.1 beta showed up.

    This BETA is a PIG! I just formatted my HD to rolled back to the GM. Only install if you must.

      No issue here. Were you already on the 10.11.1 beta? Remember that the betas have a lot of debug code still in them to collect information for bugs and fixes.
