A day after releasing the third public beta of OS X 10.11.2 to developers, Apple this evening has released the third public beta of the operating system to public beat testers. Beta 3 of OS X 10.11.2 comes just a week after Apple released beta 2 to testers.
The OS X 10.11.2 betas have not included many notable changes on the forefront, with Apple likely focusing on improving stability and performance under-the-hood with such a minor update. However, if you notice any changes, be sure to let us know in the comments. Apple encourages users to keep an eye on areas like WiFi performance, graphics capabilities, and built-in apps.
Public beta users can download the update now from the Mac App Store’s Updates tab on their computer. Users who are interested in testing public betas can apply for the program at Apple’s beta website.

Hope they fixed the problem with Aperture and screen proofing.
Apple stopped supporting Aperture last year.
I don’t like these betas were they don’t say what they have fixed or features they have added. They what programs to focus on, but no mention on what to look for in the programs.
Am I the only one having issues with personal hotspot? Let alone Instant Hotspot? Every time I want to use my iPhone 6’s cellular connection on my Mac, I have to change my iPhone’s name and hotspot password. I find it really sad that 1-instant hotspot isn’t working and 2- even personal hotspot isn’t working properly.
El Capitan and iOS9 were supposed to be all about stability…
No, it wasn’t. People speculated that, but Apple never sold it Snow Leopard-style stability update.
“A refined experience and improved performance for your Mac.”
Yeah, nothing about stability.
The first beta finally, finally fixed the 10.11 issue of Calendar not syncing with Exchange (2007) though taking 30sec-2 minutes to load data each time it opens. However CalendarAgent was running at 100%-550%+ of CPU according Activity Monitor, and my MacBook Retina 1.2GHz was barely operating.
I’m no power user: Mail (locking up, crashing, email address autocomplete taking 10 seconds or more.) Safari failing to load pages fully. Wi-Fi taking 10-15 seconds to connect…..no other apps typically open.
With the second beta CalendarAgent resource use is maybe slightly reduced but is still running 100%-200% of CPU typically and that is with Calendar (and Fantastical 2) closed!! Also when open and one tries to edit an appointment, Calendar locks up/crashes. Still takes 30 sec+ to load data when it opens.
Astonishing to me that this could be a second public beta.
The line annotation in any of the pdf apps doesn’t work anymore..
Please forward this to the apple developers, so they can fix it..
