This past Monday, Apple began rolling out a new beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.2 to both developers and public beta testers, marking the fifth build to be released of the future software upgrade for the Mac. Now just three days later, Apple has made yet another beta of macOS 10.12.2 available for testing, this time marking beta 6.

So far, the only notable new feature of macOS Sierra 10.12.2 is the inclusion of Unicode 9.0 emojis. Other than that, simple bug fixes and security improvements can be found throughout to improve your experience.
