Designated with the build number 14C68k, the first beta of the second follow-up update to OS X Yosemite 10.10 is available now to download from the Updates tab in the Mac App Store or via the Mac Dev Center.
As reported by AppleInsider, no focus areas for testers are specified by Apple in its seed notes for OS X Yosemite 10.10 beta 1. However, the company acknowledges a known issue where documents from iCloud Drive may not be opened, in which case Apple suggests a temporary workaround that requires files to be moved out of iCloud Drive before opening them.
After seeding two beta versions of OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, Apple officially released the software update last Monday. The update delivered reliability improvements to Wi-Fi, Microsoft Exchange Server, Mail, and Back to My Mac remote computer connectivity.
Featuring a visual redesign and other significant improvements, OS X Yosemite was launched in mid-October.
