The public version of the Yosemite operating system seems imminent, as the latest update marks the tenth and possibly the final developer beta version with new UI design and several other enhancements for Macs.

The fifth public beta iteration pushes the build number to 14A386a, which is widely believed to be a performance or bug-fix update over the previous GM release.

Furthermore, Apple is expected to launch OS X Yosemite on 16 October along with the grand unveiling of new Retina iMacs and iPads.

  • iMac (Mid 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late2008 Aluminum or Early 2009 or newer)
