A new Apple iOS Beta has released for macOS and iOS users who are courageous enough to register their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, or Mac computers, for Apple’s Beta Testing Program.
After just a few days Apple preferred the 3rd iOS 10.2.1 beta, Yesterday Apple started the 4th beta of iOS 10.2.1 for both developers and public testers. In lately researchers discovered a first bug fix update to iOS 10.2 that must patch various security flaws, with to add performance improvements.
The Cupertino company also released today the iOS Beta 4 version of macOS 10.12.3 Sierra.
Already the OTA update is available, and registered public testers and developers can install the update either Apple developer center or via over-the-air.
As regard the changes with the update, no specific addition of features or changes were mentioned by Apple. While it is minor 10.2.X update, we consider that the update gets along a few bug fixes and performance improvements rather than any new additions like the addition of new emojis or message screen effects as with the case with iOS 10.2.
As still there are no details on when Apple will release this update to everyone, developers and members of Apple’s public beta testing program can now download the software to their devices.
Public iOS Beta 4 builds are out now
The new iOS Beta versions of iOS 10.2.1 and macOS Sierra 10.12.3 are also available for public beta testers, which means anyone who wants to test drive these development builds. If you’re already using a previous Beta of these unstable operating systems, we advise updating as soon as possible to Beta 4, or Public Beta 4. After all, it’s a small and painless patch.
Apple also offers Beta versions of its watchOS and tvOS operating systems for Apple Watch and Apple TV devices respectively, but the today’s update did not include new versions, and they remain at watchOS 3.1.3 Beta 2 and tvOS 10.1.1 Beta 2. When testing Beta software, please try to keep in mind that you the user experience might become unstable at some point, so it’s a good practice to stay on the stable channel if you’re not a developer.
