Apple Releases Beta 1 Of OS X 10.11.6 For Mac, tvOS 9.2.2 For Apple TV

Just after releasing iOS 9.3.3 beta 1, Apple has also seeded OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 beta 1 for Macs, alongside tvOS 9.2.2 beta 1 for Apple TV 4 to developers. More details on both the new beta seed can be found below.


OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan Beta 1

The latest beta of OS X comes attached with build number 15G7a, in a form of first seed of 10.11.6. Likely to focus entirely on under-the-hood improvements and performance enhancements. Apple’s desktop platform has used previous builds of OS X El Capitan to introduce new features and consumer-facing functionality, but this time around is all about at ability and priming the platform for the imminent launch of OS X 10.2 at next month’s Wordwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2016) in San Fransisco.

Official release notes for this latest developer release state that the seed improves the stability, compatibility, and security of all Macs. Indeed, more information becomes available on any potential feature improvements, and we will definitely take that into action to bring them directly into your notification. For now, developers can grab the release from the Apple Developer Center, or directly through Mac App Store if a previous beta version is already installed on the Mac in question.


tvOS 9.2.2 Beta 1

The fourth-generation Apple TV would be Apple’s most relevant to focus on areas thanks to the release of tvOS and the underlying App Store. Of course thanks to the consistent Apple TV 4 software updates. This latest seed allows developer to get to grips with tvOS version 9.2.2, and comes just one week after the public release to tvOS 9.2.1 which was introduced to fix a number of minor bugs within the tvOS.

Apple’s accompanying release notes that have been provided to developers confirms that tvOS 9.2.2 is designed to bring bug fixes and security improvements to those owners of fourth-gen Apple TV unit. At this far moment in time it doesn’t look as if there are any consumer-facing changes or feature additions that ATV 4 owners can experience, but naturally, we will keep an eye on it and updated if any do become known.
