Apple began seeding the public beta of OS X 10.10.3 to testers in early March. Apparently it’s ready for prime time, as a new report suggests that Apple will release it to everyone as early as Wednesday. One major new feature in OS X 10.10.3 is the addition of Apple’s new Photos app, which replaces Aperture. News of the impending launch was first revealed by The Associated Press.
We already took you through a tour of Photos, but it allows you to quickly view and edit all of the pictures you’ve snapped from any iOS device. Everything is seamlessly stored in one place, which is either good news or bad news depending on how many pictures you have. I have upward of 30,000 stored in iCloud, for example, which means I need to pay Apple a subscription fee to keep everything in one place.
AppleInsider said the update to OS X 10.10.3 also includes tools that developers can use to take advantage of the Force Touch trackpad that made its debut on the new MacBook and the refreshed MacBook Pro. We’ll let you know as soon as it starts rolling out.
