After yesterday’s release of the High Sierra and tvOS 11 developer betas, today is the day for the public iOS 11 betas and the operating systems mentioned above.
These public betas are named after them because they are available to all users, not just developers. This is because, once the developer versions are released, no major bug has been detected that would render the devices inoperative. This makes this version suitable for all users who do not want to render their devices useless.
These are the novelties of the second beta of High Sierra macOS
As Apple has accustomed us, Cupertino’s people have not wanted to reveal much about this beta. As we test this new version, we will update the article with the new features found. At the moment, Apple is focusing on improving performance in this second public beta. Without a doubt, we are looking at a slightly more mature software in spite of still being a very early beta, whose performance and autonomy leaves much to be desired.
macOS High Sierra together with an iPhone
he most important new features of macOS High Sierra come mainly from Safari, the official Apple web browser will become the fastest browser in the world, surpassing even Google Chrome. But it will not be the only novelty of the browser since it will include the blocking of automatic reproduction in certain pages that do not ask the user’s previous permission, a new method to prevent them from using your Internet tracking and thus offer you certain advertising .
Mail will store 35% less space for emails . The Pictures application on High Sierra macOS will have new filters, improved facial recognition, and immediate synchronization with all your Apple devices. Not to mention the new file system . Goodbye to HFS to welcome you to the Apple File System (AFP) , more secure, faster and less storage space for our files. Finally, note that this new version of macOS will bring better performance on the system itself thanks to some updates like Metal2 .
What will we find on tvOS 11?
If yesterday I released the fourth developer beta version of tvOS 11, we assume that this public version will be very similar to the version released yesterday.
Let’s remember that the only important news expected from this new software for Apple TV is the arrival of Amazon Prime Video next September . So far, these were the words pronounced by Tim Cook (Apple’s CEO) during the last WWDC 2017.
This was the only visible novelty in tvOS 11, a unique integration of a streaming service in the Apple TV fourth generation. A presentation where much more was expected like the rumored renewal of Apple TV with the capacity of 4K support or some other novelty by tvOS 11.
As we mentioned yesterday, thanks to tvOS 11 the new AirPods will be able to appear among the audio options without the need to configure them. A new feature that is already available in iOS and macOS. In addition, the new AirPlay 2 feature will also come with tvOS 11 . This feature will allow you to control your entire home audio system with your Apple TV. This allows you to play a song in your living room and kitchen at the same time, adjusting the volume in each room directly from your Apple TV with tvOS 11.
