Apple has released the fifth beta of OS X 10.11.4 this morning, only instead of making it only available to developers, public beta testers can also get in on action immediately with the new update that brings better performance and a bunch of new features.

To grab the new beta, developers can go to the Apple Developer Center, or download it via the Software Update option if you have the previous El Capitan beta installed. Members of Apple’s public beta program came get the update by signing into Apple’s site.

Beta 5’s release notes don’t mention any major new additions, however other versions added new features like password protected entries in the Notes app, and Live Photos support in Messages. Today’s update contains mostly under the hood improvements and bug fixes.

Apple’s release notes for the update asks developers to focus on iBooks, Messages, Notes, Photos. There’s no hints of new features, but we’ll let you know what new stuff we find once we get the new El Capitan installed.
