Apple Seeds macOS 10.12.2 Beta 5 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded macOS 10.12.2 beta 5 to developers and public beta testers, one week after releasing the fourth 10.12.2 beta and more than a month after the public release of macOS 10.12.1.


The new software supports new emoji from Unicode 9 characters like clown face, selfie, face palm, and more. Additionally, the artwork of many existing emoji have also been updated to make them look more “lifelike.”

The new software will also focus on fixing any bugs discovered in the fourth beta, and aim to improve the overall experience for beta users ahead of the public launch.

The fifth beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.2 is available for download through the Apple Developer Center or through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

Available since September, macOS Sierra is the latest Mac operating system. It includes Siri support, Apple Pay for the web, Universal Clipboard, Apple Watch auto unlocking, improved iCloud Drive integration, Picture-in-Picture multitasking, and more.
