How to Download OS X Yosemite Beta on your Mac

How to Download & Install OS X Yosemite Beta on your Mac

In this summer, Apple has been just released the OS X Yosemite beta version for the general public on Thursday, July 24. That means, not only the developers who can download and install it on their Mac. Despite the fact that Apple’s developers end up having the access to OS X Yosemite for a couple months now. In case you haven’t joined yet, it’s not that too late for you. Apple has rolled out 1 million registrations to get the available codes and download it directly through the Mac App Store as of today. Just follow the step by step tutorial below to get it while it’s hot.

First things first. Make sure your Mac have the system requirements below prior to installing the OS X Yosemite Beta:

1. Have the OS X Mavericks 10.9 or the latest version installed?

2. Have 2Gb memory and 8Gb of free disk space.

To get that following information, just click the Apple icon, then choose About this Mac.

3. Just in case something goes horribly wrong and for precaution. Back up your files and data with the built-in backup utility, Time Machine. Go to System Preferences, then Time Machine and turn it on. Either way, you can install it on your secondary Mac.
