    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming OS X El Capitan update to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, just over one one week after releasing the second OS X 10.11.1 beta and a week after the public release of OS X El Capitan on September 30.

    The new beta, build 15B30a, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Apple Developer Center.


    The first beta of OS X 10.11.1 introduced support for a range of new emoji included in Unicode 8, like cheese wedge, taco, burrito, popcorn, middle finger, unicorn head, and more. Other betas appear to include under-the-hood fixes that are not immediately apparent.

    It is not clear what the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring to the new OS aside from updated emoji, but it's likely to be a minor update that includes bug fixes and performance improvements for issues encountered following the operating system's official release. According to Apple's release notes, the beta offers stability, compatibility, and security improvements.

    I thought El Capitan had some bugs. Then I reset PRAM and SMC. Problem solved.

    Worth it for that middle finger icon alone.

    Are we going to have taco and fu emoji's mentioned on every new beta from now on? If it's a joke, the joke is played out. In any case, hoping for some Audio Unit bugs attention soon....

    I hope this fixes adding Google app accounts to Internet and services. One of my school accounts can't be added. It just displays the loading animation after adding the email account.

    Outlook 2011 is still broken, but not quite as much. It beach-balls part way through sync'ing new inbox messages. Before, it would hang earlier.

    BTW, I think Apple is just as guilty as Microsoft for this issue. Apple should have made sure it didn't break in the first place.

    there's any chance that finally we'll go to 10.11.6/7/8 after many years with 10.x.5?

    I'm having a problem with El Capitan: I pinned the Facebook site in Safari. And now Facebook links (those that open a new tab) take a long time to open the new tab. It’s behaving like if Safari is loading the whole linked page in the memory before actually opening it in the new tab. And if I unpin Facebook, it opens new tabs instantly.

    Has anyone else with heavy data and drive usage noticed problems? I have two Voyager USB 3 hard drive docks that hang finder/ The Mac when trying to mount drives in El Cap. Also problems with a USB (Audio) DAC. Im going to install this latest beta and reset SMC and NVRAM and see if that fixes things this round.

    I just had like 5 apps fail I think due to SIP (System Integrity Protection) issues. Anyone else get this?

    Problems I have encountered:

    • cannot send from anything but my address in Mail (might be machine-specific; others reporting same problem have been MacBook Pro Retina users, and all have been 2013 models)
    • printer, which worked fine for a few days, has stopped working properly (Lexmark CS510de); when setting back up, drivers no longer recognize added items on printer (envelope trays are misidentified, etc.); Lexmark website no help (still goes on about how it support Apple's "latest OS Xe [sic], Mac OS 10.10!"
    • memory leak in Safari (circumstantial; if I leave Safari open with nothing but the pinned tabs, I'll eventually run out of available memory; quitting & relaunching Safari brings memory back up to almost all available)

    Still and all, my major usage apps -- InDesign and Filemaker Pro, primarily -- both work.

    Despite my advice to everyone I talk to -- wait until a 10.x.1 or 10.x.2 release before installing -- I fell for all the hype I read at Macworld and other sites that everything worked perfectly and I shouldn't worry. Won't make that mistake again.

    Considering all the problems that Office 2016 has on El Capitan, it is actually entirely on Microsoft. Apple is not entitled to make every app work on future OS X updates and there were many months for Microsoft to test their apps against El Cap betas. Many beta testers have reported these issues to Microsoft.

    All of my apps worked just fine on El Cap, therefore it is not a problem that affects all apps. Microsoft apps are known to use very old APIs that have been marked by Apple not to use again.

    What apps? Did say that SIP blocked these apps from installing? SIP is not an issue, it's a security feature meant to prevent apps from writing to specific system locations. If your apps haven't been updated to comply with SIP rules, you should contact the vendor, Apple will not fix this.

    this is beta, 10.11 is release. In any case beta doesn't necessarily have to mean broken.
