Apple on Wednesday issued its latest beta of OS X 10.11.1 to both developers and members of its public beta program, arriving less than a week after the second pre-release build.

The third beta of OS X 10.11.1 is identified as build 15B30a. It can be downloaded through the Mac App Store, or Apple's developer portal.

As with all pre-release software, Apple intends the beta release solely for testing purposes. It is not meant to be used on a day-to-day machine.

The new beta arrives just six days after the previous public build, and eight days after the developer beta 2.

Apple has not detailed any significant changes that might arrive in the first patch to El Capitan. Release notes for the second beta state that the update will focus on stability, compatibility, and security.

OS X 10.11 El Capitan was released to the general public last week as a free update, including new features like Split View, an enhanced Mission Control, a cursor spotting feature, better fullscreen view in Mail, an improved Notes app, and other general refinements and tweaks.
