Apple today seeded the fourth developer beta of watchOS 4.2, tvOS 11.2, and macOS High Sierra 10.13.2. The pre-releaes software appears to be minor in scope for all three platforms, with no major new features or changes being added to the mix. If there are any new additions released in this fourth developer beta, we will update this post accordingly.
watchOS 4.2 also includes support for Apple Pay Cash, but otherwise is a relatively minor update. There’s a new shortcut button for Bluetooth devices when playing audio, some tweaked emoji and other frivolous improvements.
tvOS 11.2 improves the media experience for owners of the just-released Apple TV 4K by adding the ability to match the native frame rate and dynamic range of your content. This makes games and other GPU-accelerated content look better, and you can find the new option in Settings.
macOS High Sierra 10.13.2
It’s not yet clear what improvements the second major update to macOS High Sierra will bring, but it’s likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren’t addressed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.
No significant new features were discovered in the first three betas of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, but we’ll update this post should notable changes be found in the fourth beta.
The new developer betas are available now, so registered developers can update their devices when they see fit. If any new features are discovered in any of the pre-release versions of the software, we will update this post accordingly.
A corresponding public beta of select pre-release platforms should be seeded soon. The fourth public beta of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 is now available as well.
Are you beta testing any of these new releases?
