Apple has made available macOS Sierra 10.12 Developer Beta 7 and Public Beta 6 pre-release seeds to registered developers and testers. Apple released this update on week after the previous, sixth version of the current beta seeds was offered to all testers.
Both developers and public beta testers are eligible to download today’s brand new update right away through the software update system that can be found under the Download section in the Mac App Store. Developers can also choose the new beta download from the Apple Developer Program portal just like how the good old days.
It is important to note to wait for the public release and the public beta or developer beta build versions can cause bugs and performance issues while running the beta build. macOS Sierra version 10.12 although promises some interesting new features that many can’t wait to get their hands on. Expected to see a wider release this fall, is all set to bring a host of new and improved performance and features to the platform, including better iCloud integration as well as support for Apple pay to the web.
This release of macOS will also be the first time Siri has been available to those who wish to use it, with that in mind, the Mac finally receiving the update many have been waiting for years now. The assistant can replace many of Spotlight’s features – like helping you find files, or even search through photos. macOS Sierra can also help you interact with your Mac system, like turning on or off your Wi-Fi, start FaceTime chats and calls, set reminders, or even adjust your volume.
There’s still a overhauled Photos app with new features that take complete advantage of your computer vision to recognize the people, places and things in an album, then organize them into intelligent collections. Also curates your past photographs into a collection via a new tab called “Memories”.
Messages on macOS Sierra also getting tweaked then, with rich links for previewing web content, as on iOS, the ability to watch video clips in the app present, and other features like iOS 10’s bigger emoji also added to the list. Safari on macOS Sierra gets more powerful access, with picture-in-picture for watching videos, which was already available on select iPads. Other applications such as TextEdit, Pages, Mail, and Maps are getting Safari-like tabs.
Alongside iOS 10 for the iPhone and iPad, macOS Sierra has seen a lot of progress all over the current beta program, which not only carry out the testing treatment but also take the time to provide feedback on any issues they come across.
We expect to see macOS Sierra and iOS 10 debut some time in September. As we getting closer to the public release, many of the tweaks are now bug fixes rather than major changes. The latest beta builds are now available in Mac App Store, should be a member on public beta program or Apple developer in order to grab them.
