Apple issues sixth beta of OS X El Capitan to developers

Apple on Monday released a sixth developer beta of OS X El Capitan, further refining the operating system as it rapidly approaches a fall release date.

The new version is listed as build 15A244d, and should be available for registered developers through the Mac App Store's Updates tab, or else the Developer Center Web portal. No significant changes have been announced.

The code is likely similar in character to the fifth beta, released a week ago, which made only minor tweaks and bug fixes. A fourth beta was issued just days prior.

The quick iteration of recent betas may suggest that Apple is nearly done with El Capitan, and only working on polishing code before a public debut.

The software will not be a major upgrade over OS X Yosemite, but will include things like Split View, a better Mission Control, and various performance improvements such as Metal graphics processing.
