Apple on Thursday seeded the sixth beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.2 to developers and public beta testers, a few days after releasing the fifth 10.12.2 beta and over a month after the public release of macOS 10.12.1.
Aside from bug fixes and performance improvements, macOS 10.12.2 won’t make your daily computing more productive but you’ll enjoy Apple’s new “Color Burst” wallpapers from MacBook Pro marketing and a ton of new Unicode 9.0 emoji characters.
The 10.12.2 update also includes some important bug fixes. A serious graphics issue that has been affecting some new MacBook Pro owners has been solved, and a Time Machine crashing issue, also impacting the new MacBook Pro, has been fixed.
macOS Sierra 10.12.2 should release next week. We’ll keep you posted and update this article with any outward-facing new features if and when we encounter them.
