Alongside iOS 11.3 developer beta 1, Apple’s software team has made available for download of new beta releases to developers. The platforms that grab all the attention, also received beta releases today are macOS High Sierra and tvOS.
The tvOS 11.3 beta 1 should not be ignored, partly because it adds one important feature for non-Apple TV 4K users. This feature is frame rate matching, that was previously only available to owners of Apple’s latest and greatest set-top box. Today, it has been confirmed to be getting it on with the new tvOS 11.3 update. Another change includes the fact that Apple TVs will now show up in the iOS Home app, and Match Content has also been overhauled according to the release notes. Speaking of which:

Moving on to another, we have here macOS 11.13.4 beta 1. This version also comes just a day after macOS 10.13.3 final release was made available to the public, which includes important security fixes. This new developer beta brings to sight is its own new features though, including a new Privacy explainer specific to macOS and a warning that pops up when a 32-bit app is launched, similar to iOS.
