Apple has today released its first public beta program for Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, which includes the addition of the new universal Photos application, which will change the way users manage photo libraries across devices.

This means that they will also be discontinuing both iPhoto and Aperture, making them all in one application.

Aside from Photos, the new version of OS X will also include a new diversified emoji, which includes more families and flags.

“The OS X Beta Program lets you take part in shaping updates to OS X Yosemite by test-driving pre-release versions and letting us know what you think. Your comments will help us make OS X better for all Mac users. Sign up today, and the beta software will be available for you to install soon.”

The version of the beta is build number 14DB7p, which is the second developer beta, but the first to be available to the general public.

Users can sign up for the beta today, just head on over to the source link and click the button to sign up. After that the update will be available to install soon for registered users.

Apple does recommend that you install it on a secondary mac or external device however, this is so if there are any bugs in the code your Mac won’t be effected, as you cannot downgrade after installing.

As of yet there’s no official release date for Mac OS X 10.10.3.
