One day after Apple released the first beta versions of iOS 9.3.2 and OS X 10.11.5 to developers, the company on Thursday issued the same builds to members of the public beta program for testing.

As noted yesterday, Apple's latest prerelease software lacks the significant feature additions seen in iOS 9.3 and instead focuses on addressing bugs and delivering performance enhancements.

Users taking part in Apple's public beta tester program can access the new builds via Software Update on iOS and through the Mac App Store. Those interested in evaluating the latest Apple software can sign up through the company's website, though it should be noted that prerelease builds are often unstable and are not recommended for install on primary devices.

Apple issued an iOS point release last week to address a problem with web links, while OS X 10.11.4 brought new features like Live Photos support to Mac last month.
