Apple Releases macOS Sierra Dev Beta 7 & Public Beta 6 to Testers

Just a week ago, Apple released the sixth and fifth developer and public betas of macOS Sierra 10.12 respectively. Now following the release of iOS 10 beta 7 three days ago, the company has decided to begin rolling out macOS Sierra beta 7 for developers and beta 6 for public testers. The update is available through the Mac App Store and is very light in weight which is common for beta builds released around this time frame.

As of yet, nothing new or notable has been discovered in Sierra beta 7/6 except for the usual bug fixes and stability improvements alongside some security tweaks to keep your information private. We’ll update this post if there’s word that something worth mentioning is found, however that’s rather unlikely.

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 7 of macOS Sierra on your Mac (or beta 6 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 7/6 listing and restart your Mac.
