Less than a week after releasing the third public beta, Apple has released the fourth public beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

Apple doesn’t provide any details as to what’s been updated in the new beta, but the company does recommend that all beta users install the update. To do that, all you have to do is launch the App Store, click on the Updates tab, and when it appears in the listing, click the Update button. Your Mac will need to restart.

You can still sign up for the El Capitan beta program, but remember, it’s beta software and it’s possible that you’ll encounter bugs and problems with your apps and hardware, which is why you should provide feedback when using the beta.

If you’ve been using the beta and you don’t want to anymore, you can revert back to Yosemite.
