If you’re running the latest OS X El Capitan Update Beta on your Mac, head over to the Mac App Store to grab today’s Update Beta 5 release. OS X 10.11.2 is currently being developed alongside iOS 9.2 for iPhone and iPad as well as tvOS 9.1 for the new Apple TV. If you’re already running the OS X 10.11.2 beta, launch the Mac App Store and open the Updates tab to download and install the new release, then restart your Mac. The update is available for both developers and public beta testers.

OS X 10.11.2 betas have focused on improvements across a handful of apps and parts of the operating system, including graphics, Mail, Wi-Fi, Calendar, USB, Notes, Photos, Spotlight, and networking. The update to the Mac will also likely be required to take advantage of AT&T’s new NumberSync feature for iPhones, which has been tested in previous iOS 9.2 betas ahead of an early 2016 release. Apple first started testing OS X 10.11.2 with developers and public beta testers in late October.
OS X 10.11.2 follows the last point update to El Capitan, which included over 150 new emoji characters as well as fixes for Microsoft Office on the Mac. We’ll update with any notable changes spotted in the latest OS X beta.
