macOS Sierra Beta 3 Now Hitting Developers’ Macs for Testing


Following the release of the third build of iOS 10, Apple has begun rolling out the third beta of macOS Sierra to developers for testing purposes and debugging. This comes two weeks after the second iteration of the upcoming software update for the Mac was released.

macOS Sierra beta 3 hasn’t proven to bring anything new to the table that we didn’t already know. Other than bug fixes and stability enhancements alongside possible security improvements, not much is different between build 3 and 2 of the software update for the Mac.

macOS Sierra is already bringing Siri to the Mac alongside Picture-in-Picture mode for videos, Apple Pay support by ways of Safari, universal clipboard which works in conjunction with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, an updated Photos and Maps app with all the same features of the new versions of the software for iOS 10, a new Messages app to work alongside the one found in iOS 10, and the ability to use tabs across every application available for the Mac amongst other new features.

    I’ll have to do something about it tomorrow morning, unless it miraculously recovers from it’s apparent death…
