    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 beta to public beta testers, just a few days after releasing the second OS X 10.11.4 beta to developers and just over a week after releasing OS X 10.11.3.

    The second beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who are enrolled in Apple's beta testing program. Those wishing to join the program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website.

    OS X 10.11.4 includes a couple of new features, such as the ability to support password protected notes in the Notes app, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements with few noticeable outward-facing changes.

    Apple is likely to release OS X 10.11.4 in the spring, alongside iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, and tvOS 9.2.

    I wonder if they'll fix the Safari full screen youtube bug that's been around since El Capitan came out...

    Fix Mail not sending mail, some Apps need to be 100% guaranteed to work, sadly Apple thinks otherwise.

    I think it's weird that updates of iOS bring new features and improvements but OS X updates seem to always be chasing iOS features, or adding no new features at all.

    I still get occasional input lag on my Magic Trackpad. How about fixing that in 10.11.4?

    Definitely. I'm going to stick to this OS for a long time. No issues for me since I installed it.

    No. OS X 10.11.3 is no longer in testing.

    And no again. OS X 10.11.3 has ALREADY been released to the public.

    Here is the OS X 10.11.3 combo: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1859?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    Oh, good. I'm not going crazy and can still read. I kept rereading it to make sure I wasn't missing something. :confused:

    You guys understand that if you're seeing an issue and 99 percent of the many millions of people who are using El Cap aren't seeing it and have no idea what you're talking about, it's just local to you and probably not something Apple is going to fix because it's not actually a problem in OS X, right?

    (looking directly at Traverse, and justperry specifically)

    Get rid of Rootless (system integrity protection). Please and thank you.

    Have you guys considered, y'know, reporting those issues?

    (FWIW, I can watch YouTube in full-screen in Safari, and I can send mail with Mail. I have been able to in 10.11.3, 10.11.2, 10.11.0, and, well, for a long time.)

    How exactly? (Comparison with Yosemite would be handy.)

    Isn't it nice of Apple to not release dev and pub betas on the same day, thus giving Macrumors EIGHT new articles to post?

    Significantly lowered vector of stability and security issues.

    Yes, I'm sure increasing Macrumors's ad impressions is a top priority for Apple's beta release schedule.

    When I said "exactly" I didn't mean "by saying something that actually means nothing whatsoever but sounds smart". If you come with a statistic of 99.99% of users benefitting, please follow that real world examples where that happens, ideally with numbers confirming the 99.99% percentage. Thanks in advance!

    This website has a sidebar called "More Macrumors Stories". They posted the "Apple releases public beta 3 update" there once and lots of members thanked them profusely for not pretending those are actual articles, but I see they realised the error of their ways since.

    Great Advice, I have reported all of my issues to Apple and believe it or not, they have all been fixed, not right away but it has happened. The first time it happened, shortly after switching from PC to Mac and found my first issue I thought it was incredible that they may be listening. Over time I have continued to report and continue to see the minor fixes be done here and there. So I highly recommend taking chucker23n1 advice here!!!

    Is it so hard to make a mail program work well, I never had mayor issues with mail before, now I do and so do others, but, I know it will get fixed, it's not a huge deal.
    There should be a fix (removing all mail account and add them again) but I don't have too much time now to try if that helps.

    There is zero reason to compromise on security for the sake of true root access. The majority of users will benefit from added security, as they do not need root. Those who do know how to do disable it anyway.

    95% chance the problem is on your end. You corrupted something. Apple didn't. Mail is fine. Reinstall. Go to the genius bar.

    Sorry guys, this was prepped a bit back and we overlooked updating it. It's been fixed, thanks for catching it :)
