A number of sources are reporting that a couple of weeks prior to releasing the public beta of OS X 10.10, Yosemite, an update to the preview versions released to developers and testers has been made available.

The updates have been released so far about every two weeks and each has reportedly had significant improvements, although they are not yet ready for the public release: that is the purpose of testing after all.

Along with the Yosemite update there are a number of utilities. The update also includes the new version of iTunes (version 12) with its red icon, that has family sharing, playlist improvements and other enhancements to the interfacing.

Apple is expected to release the final version of Yosemite around September, and at the same time iOS 8 is expected to be made available: several features in both operating systems work together so the concurrent release is highly probable.
