24 hours after seeding iOS 9.3 beta 7 to developers and public testers, Apple today seeded the seventh beta of OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 to developers for testing purposes, just over a week after seeding the sixth OS X 10.11.4 beta and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.3. OS X 10.11.4 has been in testing since January 11.
OS X 10.11.4 offers a couple of new features, such as Live Photos support in Messages, the ability to password protect notes in the Notes app, and an option to import notes from Evernote, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements. Almost all of Apple’s OS X updates to date have been smaller updates that improve performance rather than introduce new features.
The new version with a build number of 15E64a is available as an over-the-air update through the Mac App Store’s Purchased tab on Macs authorized for software development through the Apple Developer Program and on computers enrolled into the Apple Beta Software Program.
As for what’s new in this specific release, that is not known at this time. However, if anything is discovered we will update this post accordingly.
