Apple releases OS X Yosemite preview 7 to developers

Apple seeds OS X Yosemite Preview 7 to developers



Apple seeded the seventh beta of OS X Yosemite to developer this afternoon with build 6A280n. The release comes ahead of Yosemite’s wide release this fall, and while the seed note doesn’t mention any new features, it looks like Apple’s engineers have been busy squashing bugs.

Accompanying the Yosemite beta is a new beta of Xcode 6 that includes a number of improvements with the Swift programming language Apple debuted at WWDC. There are also new beta’s available for OS X Server 4.0 Developer Preview and Apple Configurator 1.7 beta 5.

Apple’s public beta program for Yosemite was opened to one million public testers in July that should be able to get the new beta soon from the Apple Software update menu, while developers can grab it now from the Mac Dev Center.

Yosemite brings a revamped UI to OS X along with a host of new features aimed at making your iPhone and Mac work smarter together. No official word from Apple on what’s inside the new preview but we’ll let you know what we find as soon as its installed.
