macOS Sierra Beta 4 Now Hitting the Desks of Devs


Following the release of the fourth build of iOS 10, Apple has begun seeding developers with the fourth beta of macOS Sierra for testing. This comes two weeks after the third beta of the upcoming software for Mac was released.

As of yet, no new features or tweaks have proven to come out of macOS Sierra, however we’ll let you know if we find something notable.

A change between beta 3 and 4 of macOS Sierra is the fact that the installation process goes a lot smoother. Some users reported to MBEDDED that while installing the third build of the future update for Mac, their computer simply stopped about a half-inch away from completing. This I can confirm is true as I experienced the same thing. However, I’m writing this article on beta 4 and I can assure you, it’s much smoother. Plus, the installation went way quicker than I thought it would.

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.

If you want to install beta 4 of macOS Sierra on your Mac, head over to the “Updates” tab in the App Store and check for updates. There, you’ll find the new build ready to install. Just click the “Update” next to the macOS Sierra Beta 4 listing and restart your Mac. You must be a registered developer in order to use this software on your Mac. Otherwise, you’ll have to sign up for the macOS Sierra beta program that’ll give you free access to a preview build of the new software for Mac before it gets released this fall. Click here to find out how.
