In addition to releasing the seventh beta of iOS 9.3 yesterday, Apple today has released OS X 10.11.4 beta 7 to developers and public beta testers. Beta 7 comes just a week after beta 6 was released.

Much like iOS 9.3, OS X 10.11.4 enables Notes users to optionally protect entries behind a password. Protected notes are only visible on Macs running OS X 10.11.4 or later, and iOS 9.3 or later is required for viewing on iPhones and iPads.

Apple has also added a missing feature in Messages. Starting with OS X 10.11.4, Macs can now view and share Live Photos shot on the iPhone 6s or later. Previously, Macs could only view the still image; the motion and sound was removed when receiving or sending a Live Photo.

Photos for Mac has also been updated to support sending Live Photos over Messages using the built-in share extension.

Beta 7 carries the build number 15E64a.
