OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 First Public Beta Reaches Users

OS X 10.11.1-El capitan-beta-0

Two days after Apple released the first beta of OS X 10.11.2 to developers for testing purposes, well, now this same version reaches out to users participating in the public beta program.

As with the developer build released earlier this week, the OS X 10.11.2 public beta comes with the same areas of focus that Apple emphasized to developers, namely improved graphics performance, Mail improvements, Wi-Fi and USB connections, as well as including improvements in the Calendar, Notes, Photos and Spotlight applications.


Still the full list of features has yet to be released, so this update is expected to continue to include the usual assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements.

If you remember, OS X 10.11.1 was recently released to address the problems with Office 2016, Mail, VoiceOver, and minor bugs that affected certain users. The software update also included over 150 new emoji characters, matching the latest version of iOS 9.

For my part, I hope they solve a bug soon, which although it is somewhat trivial, it is still very annoying and that already affects many users with OS X El Capitan installed. I mean specifically when the system comes back from sleep on Macs with wireless keyboards that makes the keyboard "go crazy" and start typing by itself, having to restart the computer or remove the batteries from the keyboard.

Members enrolled in the public beta program can download this first beta from OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan after via the Apple Software Beta program website this link.

    Well, I hope they improve Mail, because it does not work well, it does not synchronize, it causes problems with the elimination of emails, etc ... More than annoying is that you cannot work if you do not depend on a webmail or a third-party app ...

    You don't need to restart your mac or remove the batteries to fix the wireless keyboard issue coming back from sleep. I turn off the keyboard (keeping the button pressed for 3 seconds) and turn it on again.

    I use Yosemite Airmal 2 since and the truth is that it suits me luxury. I got tired of Mail because it kept having problems with duplicate emails and synchronization.

    In El Capitan what is not going well for me is the Spotlight. It takes me a long time to launch an application or find a file. A couple of days ago I installed Alfred (I was already using it in Yosemite) and it works great.
