Apple has released the latest builds for its upcoming OS X Yosemite operating system. Consumers who have been trying the Public Beta can now download OS X Yosemite Public Beta 3, while developers who have been partaking in the developer preview can also now download OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 8.
We don’t yet know what sort of changes are in the latest builds of both software releases, but this is one step closer to Apple’s public release of its new desktop operating system. While iOS 8 is set to launch just two days from now, Apple hasn’t said when OS X Yosemite will launch to the public. Since iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite work hand-in-hand, we’re eager to learn more about the release date as soon as possible.
Most rumors have suggested Apple will launch OS X Yosemite in October. That date seems more likely, particularly considering a Tweet from 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, which says SMS Continuity in OS X Yosemite/iOS 8 will be available in October after a software patch is released for Apple’s mobile operating system.
