Notes and Known Issues



  • After upgrading to OS X El Capitan Developer Beta, applications that write to protected/system locations may no longer function correctly.

            Known Issues

  • Directly upgrading from OS X Lion or earlier to OS X El Capitan Developer Beta is not recommended.
  • Selecting the ‘Do It Later’ option will not install updates for standard user accounts.
  • If your installation appears to hang at a black screen for an extended period of time at the end, press enter to continue.

Apple ID


  • Some Apple ID accounts will be offered the option to upgrade to using two-factor authentication. For More information about using two-factor authentication with your Apple ID see apple.com/support/two-factor-authentication.

            Known Issues

  • If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you may not be able to sign into services using OS X El Capitan or iOS 9 beta 2 or earlier.
  • If you enable two-factor authentication, iTunes purchases on Mac and Windows and store purchases on Apple TV will require you to append a 6-digit code to the end of your password on every purchase. The 6-digit code will automatically be sent to your iOS 9 or OS X El Capitan devices.
  • When there is only a single trusted device using two-factor authentication, you will need to generate a code in the iCloud Preference Pane when requested.
  • You cannot manage your two-factor authentication trusted devices at apple.com. Devices can be managed in the iCloud Preference Pane.



  • Photos libraries are not backwards compatible. Once a library has been opened in the OS X El Capitan Developer Beta, it will no longer be openable in OS X Yosemite or earlier.

            Known Issues

  • Moments headers may not be consistent across devices after user manually adds locations to assets in the library.


            Known Issues

  • Some text may not be localized to the selected system language.
  • Some languages may have clipped or misaligned layout.



  • System file permissions are automatically protected, and updated during Software Updates. The Repair Permissions function is no longer necessary.
  • OS X El Capitan is the last major release of OS X that will support the previously deprecated garbage collection runtime. Applications or features that depend upon garbage collection may not function properly or will not launch when the runtime is removed. Developers should use Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) or manual retain/release for memory management. Xcode includes tools to aid in this migration.
  • OS X El Capitan is the last major release of OS X that will support the previously deprecated Java 6 runtime and tools provided by Apple. Applications or features that depend upon Java 6 may not function properly or will not launch when Java 6 is removed. Developers should move to a newer version of Java as provided by Oracle. For more info on Java from Oracle: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/overview/
  • When negotiating a TLS/SSL connection with Diffie-Hellman key exchange, OS X El Capitan requires a 1024-bit group or larger. OS X El Capitan will not connect to a server that allows negotiation with a 512-bit or smaller group. These connections include:
    • Secure Web (HTTPS)
    • Enterprise Wi-Fi (802.1X)
    • Secure e-mail (IMAP, POP, SMTP)
    • Printing servers (IPPS)
  • The nscurl tool on OS X El Capitan supports diagnosing ATS secure connections. For example, /usr/bin/nscurl –ats-diagnostics https://www.example.com will display ATS connection information for www.example.com. Run /usr/bin/nscurl -h for more information.
  • The fetchAllChanges property on CKFetchRecordChangesOperation is deprecated, and will be removed in iOS 9, OS X El Capitan.
