Second public beta of OS X 10.11.2 now available to Apple-approved testers

The second beta for Apple's next maintenance and software update for its OS X 10.11 El Capitan operating system is now available to members of the company's public beta program.

OS X 10.11.2 beta 2 can now be downloaded from the Mac App Store by registered users. The launch comes two days after the second beta build, identified as 15C31f, was supplied to developers.

The first beta of OS X 10.11.2 became available to public testers one week ago. Focus areas for the incremental update include Graphics, Mail, Wi-Fi, Calendar, USB, Notes, Photos and Spotlights.

Apple recently released OS X 10.11.1 to address issues with Office 2016, Mail, VoiceOver and minor bugs affecting certain users. The software update also included more than 150 new emoji characters, bringing it in parity with iOS 9.

Members of the public beta program can download the OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan maintenance update after signing in through the Apple Beta Software Program website.
