macOS Sierra Beta 6 and 5 Rolling Out to Devs and Public Testers


Following the rollout of the sixth and fifth builds of iOS 10 to the same parties, Apple has released macOS Sierra 10.12 beta 6 and 5 to developers and public beta testers respectively. This comes just under a week after the company rolled out the fifth and fourth builds of the upcoming OS upgrade for the Mac to testers of the same kind.

Not much else is different between developer beta 6 and 5 of macOS Sierra other than the usual bug fixes, security enhancements, and stability improvements. However, if we spot something worth noting, we’ll let you know.

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 6 of macOS Sierra on your Mac (or beta 5 if you’re on the public beta program), 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 6/5 listing and restart your Mac.
