Yosemite Public Beta 2 – OS X Yosemite Public Beta 2 Released

Apple has released the second version of the OS X Yosemite Public Beta. Mac users who opted in to participate in the public beta program for Yosemite are recommended to install the update. Alongside Public Beta 2 is also a new beta version of the redesigned iTunes 12. Both updates focus on bug fixes and feature refinements as the next version of OS X marches closer towards a public release in the Fall.

Users who are actively running OS X Yosemite Beta will find the new update available to them through the Software Update mechanism of the Mac App Store. The download weighs in about 1.7 GB for both packages of the new iTunes 12 build as well as OS X Yosemite Beta 2.
