    Just curious, and please forgive my ignorance.

    My ABOUT information says I still have a beta version of El Capitan. Will I forever be a beta tester for this product?

    Did you remove your Mac from the beta program? If not then you will still receive beta updates.

    You can disable the beta updates in System Preferences / App Store, but if you are already on 10.11.3 I would wait until the final version is released, because you will always stay on Beta 1 if you change it now and don't get any updates with bug fixes since then.


    If the option is not listed there you can use a Terminal command to get rid of beta updates:

    softwareupdate --clear-catalog


    Also you can login to the Apple beta website and completely cancel the beta program:

    that beta was just released to the public, so yes, it's the newest version of the OS. if you don't want any betas, opt out. otherwise, you're as up-to-date as possible...

    Thanks. I just wasn't sure that it was the most up-to-date.
