Get on the Appleseed email list and there’s a good chance you’ll be able to snag the public beta of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Per iMore, beginning Thursday, Apple will be sending out invitations to test out the next version of OS X. The invites will be going out to the first million people that are signed up through the Appleseed public beta program.

Apple says that the beta should be available for download starting at 1PM Eastern time. If you haven’t signed up yet, you still can. There’s no guarantee those million spots haven’t already been filled, but that also doesn’t mean that Apple might not open testing up to a broader audience for subsequent betas as they troubleshoot bugs.


Yosemite has so far iterated through four developer previews, with the most recent fourth OS X 10.10 developer preview being released just two days ago.

If you’ve tried the OS X 10.10 developer previews or public beta, please let us know what you make of the new operating system in its developmental stage in the comments.
