After releasing iOS 9.3.2 beta 2, Apple has made available to download OS X 10.11.5 and watchOS 2.2.1 beta 2 to developers registered on the Apple Developer Program. The new beta 2 seeds for Macs and Apple Watch comes exactly two weeks after Apple released first beta for testing purposes, and they look consolidate the said platforms by ironing out bugs and focusing on under-the-hood performance and stability improvements. Strangely enough, Apple didn’t release tvOS 9.2.1 beta 2 for Apple TV 4 today.
OS X 10.11.5 Beta 2
Couple of weeks after releasing the maiden OS 10.11.5 pre-release seed, Apple made its second iteration of the fifth major update to El Capitan. This update is available to registered developers and testers, but unfortunately doesn’t come equipped with any sort of outward-facing changes that suers can directly interact with. Relatively, the focus efforts on looking to introduce new features head of OS X 10.12 reveal at this June-bound WWDC. Rather Apple is simply looking to consolidate what it already has by introducing security fixes and optimize areas that have been identified as problematic since the launch od OS X 10.11.4 a month ago.
As of now, this second pre-release seed of OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan can be obtained and installed through the usual mechanism. This involves heading over to the Mac App Store and going through the software update process if the first pre-release seed is already running on your machine. No problem! If you don’t have the first beta installed, you will need to first head to developer.apple.com and initiate the download from there.
watchOS 2.2.1 Beta 2
The Apple Watch’s underlying firmware watchOS 2.2 released last month. Added some improvements to the Apple’s wearable. By bringing features such as an improved Maps experience, and allowing greater control through a connected iPhone, ensuring that conbsumers had more power at their best. watchOS 2.2.1, which we saw the first beta introduced Two weeks ago, is back with a second seed, that brings nothing new as we expected. In this note of action, Apple has chosen to rather focus on the obligatory bug fixes and performance improvements that are necessary to take a platform to the next level from a user-experience perspective.
Apple’s latest Beta 2 seed of watchOS 2.2.1 can also be downloaded and installed through the accompanying Watch app on the iPhone, directly. Simply head on over to the Software Update mechanism within the app and follow the instructions through.
