Earlier reports were true: Apple will indeed launch the OS X Yosemite Public Beta to consumers in the very near future. How soon? According to Jim Dalrymple from The Loop, who recently spoke with Apple, the public beta will be available for anyone to try starting tomorrow, July 24.
The first release to the public is the fourth build that was pushed to developers earlier this week, The Loop said. A few members of the TechnoBuffalo staff have been using the OS X Yosemite beta since it first launched, and it has so far been pretty solid, though most folks should probably not install it on their primary computer.
Anyone who is interested in trying OS X Yosemite Public Beta can simply head to Apple’s website to sign up. When it’s available on Thursday, you’ll be able to install it, and then all future software patches, including the final release, can be installed through a regular update. OS X Yosemite offers a ton of new features and a lot of user interface refinements. Hit the source to sign up now, if you haven’t already.
