Apple: We'll unleash OS X Yosemite beta on the MASSES on 24 July

Starting today, regular fanbois will be guinea pigs, it tells Reg

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Anyone eager to take Apple's OS X Yosemite for a spin will be able to get their hands on it from 24 July, the firm has promised.

Paid-up developers have been able to test-drive the desktop operating system for the past few weeks.

The iPhone giant confirmed to The Register today that version 10.10 of OS X will, come this Thursday, be available for download by users who have signed up for the public beta program.

Earlier this week we reported that Yosemite was being prepared for an end-of-July beta release. Now it seems Apple has made good on that speculation. And yes, we're talking July this year.

First announced at the company's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco in June, Yosemite has been available to members of Apple's developer network as a closed beta program.

The Yosemite release, successor to OS X Mavericks, will – according to Apple – sport improved integration with iOS gadgets as well as new versions of Safari, Mail and Spotlight, and other bits and pieces. ®
