After iPhone 10th Anniversary celebrations today Apple steps forward in the progression of macOS Sierra by releasing the third-pre-release seed.
macOS 10.12.3 beta 3 (16D25a) is now available to users registered on the Apple Developer Program and with compatible Mac hardware. This latest update sees Apple once again requesting the input and guidance of developers to finalize macOS 10.12.3, and follows almost three and a half weeks after the initial 10.12.3 beta was released back in December 2016.
According to Apple’s release notes, the 10.12.3 update “improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.” No specific changes, bug fixes, or feature additions were discovered in the first two betas, as this gets minimal ones, other than that this update should post any new features in its third beta state.
Like most beta builds of macOS, this latest pre-release seed once again stipulates, meaning that those installing it can expect a beta build that only features relatively minor outward-facing changes, if any. But it seems like Apple has still taken the necessary steps (engineering resources) to ensure that the overall macOS Sierra experience has been improved with 10.12.3.
In order to achieve that, macOS 10.12.3, and particularly this latest seed, includes under-the-hood enhancements and somewhat improvements that should make all Macs running macOS Sierra a more secure, and extremely pleasurable place to be. Ultimately, that also includes ongoing changes and anything new does crop up with this beta seed, will let you know instantly.
Available since September last year, macOS Sierra is the latest Mac operating system, which it includes Siri support, Apple Pay for the web, Universal Clipboard, Apple Watch auto unlocking, improved iCloud Drive integration, Picture-to-Picture multitasking, and bundled with smaller features that can be found in macOS Sierra releases.
Certainly, it won’t be long now until Apple takes the final step and releases macOS Sierra 10.12.3 to the general public. This specific version has been in testing for coming up to a month, and given the relatively small nature of the improvements, it’s likely that a public release is right around the horizon.
As always, the latest macOS Sierra 10.12.3 beta is now live to download and install immediately from the Mac App Store to those who are currently running a previous pre-release seed of macOS 10.12.3.
