Ever since June, when Apple officially unveiled OS X El Capitan, the next iteration of Apple’s desktop operating system, betas have been trickling out.

Now, on August 3, Apple has officially seeded the sixth beta of OS X El Capitan to developers. The previous beta, number 5, was released on July 27. It’s been almost two months since Apple first introduced OS X El Capitan, so the betas are coming along at a nice clip. The sixth beta is build 15A244d.

As usual, the update is available through the Mac App Store on devices that are running the fifth beta. It will also be available through the Apple Developer portal shortly.

The list of Macs supported by OS X El Capitan are as follows:

  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

As far as what’s new at this point, it’s unknown. However, the last few betas have strictly focused on behind-the-scenes improvements and enhancements, so it’s possible that this beta release will focus on the same.
