It’s now official, finally the Apple’s macOS Sierra version 10.12 beta 1 is now live and available to download and install for developers. Those who enrolled and registered on Apple Developer Program can instantly grab the latest beta version of desktop OS from Apple right now. For those registered on the free Apple Public Beta Program, have to wait, as the company has confirmed that Sierra will be available to public testers in July.
Part of this announcement at the WWDC 2016 also includes macOS Sierra beta 1 being made available to download and interact with. There are some notable additions, like Siri making its debut on desktop, but not a lot has been changed in terms of overall interface. With that said, macOS definitely does build on the foundation that’s been laid in place with the last couple of major versions of Apple’s desktop platform.
Developers looking to grab the beta release of macOS Sierra 10.12 need to be registered and enrolled member at developer.apple.com.
List for compatibility, most modern Macs, including the iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, and Mac Pro, are capable of installing and executing the latest macOS.
When will the final version will be made available? Generally, Apple has a habit of releasing new versions of its desktop platform alongside the public release of the latest version of iOS. Expecting Apple’s new iPhone 7 to drop in September, be the first device to ship with iOS 10. It’s reasonable to assume that Apple will release the final version of macOS Sierra to public at the same time frame.
Before that, the beta ride that will inevitably see multiple pre-release seeds hit the airwaves over the next few months before we get that final public release somewhere in September.
