Though Apple's latest desktop operating system, OS X Yosemite, won't officially be launched until sometime this fall, the Cupertino-based company released its third public beta on Sept. 15 to developers and registered Mac owners. The update, which was labeled build "14A361," is available to registered developers who pay a yearly fee of $99 for advanced access to never-been-released software. The public beta can only be installed on Macs running on OS X Mavericks.
The website reports that Apple could release another public beta before it releases the final version of the OS, which will then be made available to all. The release of a third beta is reportedly an indication that Apple could be making some tweaks to the operating system before the release of the iOS 8.
