OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Beta 4 Is Now Available For Developers


Apple has released the fourth beta of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 to registered developers — suggesting that the OS update could be made public in the very near future.

The update follows one week after developers received Apple’s OS X 10.9.2 beta 3, and more than five weeks following the launch of the first beta.

With Apple’s fourth beta of OS X 10.9.2, the company is asking developers to continue focusing their testing on on Mail, Messages, Graphic Drivers, VoiceOver, VPN and FaceTime Audio.

Beta 4 is approximately half the size of Beta 3. As with all beta software, it’s worth noting that features and fixes can differ from what will be in the final code of the public release.

With that said, basing this rollout on Apple’s previous behavior, the public release of OS X 10.9.2 may see the light of day as early as next week.
