Apple releases OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 public beta with Live Photos in Messages, secure Notes, and more

Apple has released the new OS X 10.11.4 public beta that was pre-released to developers earlier this week.

New features include Live Photo viewing and sharing in Messages, secure password protection for individual notes in Apple’s Notes app, and other improvements.

The new beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who are enrolled in Apple’s beta testing program.

Both OS X 10.11.3 and OS X 10.11.4 appear to focus largely on under-the-hood bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements.

MacDailyNews Take: It’s snappy (but, remember, it’s a beta: Not for production Macs)!


  1. I like new features. I would love bugs fixed.
    Calendar always resizing to the upper half of the screen regardless of what we have tried to get it to stick.
    The Finder icon standing next to the Dock whenever an icon was put next to it while using an app on another device
    startup order. I now first get my username and then it continues to load where it used to be the last stage of loading.
    This list is long, Apple, the list is long.

    Remedy: I look at Windows 10 on a € 3000,- HP notebook and feel fine again, and am happy with my MBP 🙂
