Apple Updates macOS Sierra GM Seed w/ New Build Number, Likely Bug Fixes

Just when you think they’re done with additional builds and betas for developers and public testers to try out, Apple today released yet another iteration of macOS Sierra which comes under a week before the initial release of the new software upgrade for the Mac. This build carries the number 16A323 over the previous identification of 16A319.

Obviously, there isn’t anything notably different between this GM release of Sierra and the one before. The only likely difference is some additional bug fixes Apple wanted to include before they went ahead and released this piece of software to the general public. Of course, if there is anything worth mentioning in this build of macOS, we’ll let you know.

macOS Sierra’s 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 the updated GM seed 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 GM Seed listing and restart your Mac. The process may take a little while as the update package weighs a good hefty amount, so be patient and don’t turn off your Mac manually if you don’t have to.
