Apple Seeds macOS Sierra 10.12.1 Beta 2 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple has just seeded the second beta of macOS Sierra to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, nearly a week after seeding the first beta and a week after releasing the new operating system to the public.


macOS Sierra is a significant update that brings features like Siri support, a new storage optimization option, cross device copy paste, auto unlocking with the Apple Watch, and more.

The macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update adds support for Portrait albums to the Photos app, a feature that will be in the hands of the public via iOS 10.1 very soon. No other major new features have been spotted in the update just yet.

The new beta can be installed as an over-the-air update via the Mac App Store for machines that are already running the first beta. It’s also available on Apple’s dedicated site for developers. Apple has also released the second public beta, which is available as an OTA update for those running the first public beta. If you wish to sign up for Apple’s public beta, go here.

If anything new is discovered in the new developer beta, we’ll update this post accordingly.
