OS X Yosemite Public Beta 2 is available

OS X Yosemite Public Beta 2 is now available



Apple has released the second public beta of OS X Yosemite to participants in its first ever open beta program for the desktop operating system that opened up last month.

The public release follows the sixth OS X Yosemite beta that was seeded to developers earlier this week, and also comes with an iTunes 12 update that can be downloaded through the Mac App Store.

Along with adding a bunch of new wallpapers in the sixth Yosemite beta, Apple redesigned the System Preferences icons and added Do Not Disturb mode back to the Notification Center, but those changes may not be included in the public beta release today.

OS X Yosemite is expected to be released to the public this fall with a host of new UI changes that bring it more inline with iOS 7’s style, along with new features like Dark Mode, improved spotlight, Handoff, and more.
