Apple has seeded yet another OS X Yosemite GM candidate to registered developers. It’s the second GM release we’ve seen this week, and it brings with it some small changes to drivers and Keychain Access.
It’s not often Apple rolls out more than one GM candidate; the company usually saves this moniker for versions that are all but ready for their public release. However, we saw several GM releases for OS X Mavericks last year, and now Yosemite is getting the same treatment.
Don’t expect any groundbreaking changes in this seed, though. 9to5Mac reports that there are some minor alterations to Keynote Access and drivers, but aside from that, it seems the third Yosemite GM is almost identical to the second one. But that’s good news; bigger changes can be a sign of bigger problems that still need fixing, but Yosemite appears ready for prime time.
So, when exactly will you be able to get your hands on it? Well, Apple still hasn’t told us that yet, but we expect to hear more next Thursday, October 16, from a special iPad and Mac event at Apple’s Town Hall. What we are sure of is that the update will be free for anyone with a recent Mac.
If you’re a registered developer and you’re yet to download the third Yosemite GM, you can get it now via the Mac App Store.
