Download 2nd Golden Master OS X Yosemite 10.10 for Developers
Apple has continued its trend of releasing the second Golden Master edition for OS X Yosemite as it did last year for the Mavericks. The 2nd Gold Master edition is set for official release later this month. You can download OS X Yosemite Golden Master 2 if you are already registered for the Apple Developer Program. It arrives with iOS 8.1 beta 2 download, which was made available for developers only a short time ago. The Cupertino company has felt it necessary to release another version of OS X Yosemite for testing by developers, despite only a few changes have been made from Gold Master edition 1.
Usually, the Candidate Golden Master edition becomes the final build of the operating systems and gets implemented as the first public release. The fact that another GM has been released prior to the launching of the public version, indicates that Apple wanted to make some minor tweaks under the cover before releasing the final public version. The Cupertino company doesn’t want to leave any gap in the performance of the operating system.
If you have adopted the OS X beta seed route, then you can experience the features of Public Beta 5 that is available for downloading on your Mac.
At this stage, with just over a two weeks left before the expected release of OS X Yosemite, we don’t expect another major Golden Master edition now. This expectation is due to the shortage of time for making corrections in features and performing some other functional changes.
We will most probably see the release of the OS X Yosemite official Mac App store release in the week following October 20. IOS 8.1 may also be along the corner. Some devices to be released in the major event to be held are iPad Air, iPad Mini, refreshed Mac mini, and Retina iMac. This month is going to be pretty busy for the iPod makers.
Although, convincing evidence about the release of the operating systems and devices in a fortnight time is certainly not there, yet the people are quite excited about the prospects of these major products from Apple. We should expect some big announcements from the Cupertino company in the next few weeks. Perhaps, the situation will become clearer as we near the major event of Apple in the week after October 20.
