Apple releases macOS 10.12.4 beta 8 and watchOS 3.2 beta 7 for developers
It’s Monday, and of course, it’s operating systems betas day. The first betas that have seen the light have been the beta 8 of macOS 10.12.4 and the seventh of watchOS 3.2. It should be noted that these are only available to developers, although it stoma used to be that in the coming hours are available to all users, due to the great stability they are having.
As I dropped earlier, we find that we are with a version of these operating systems that are already well worked on at this point, that have 8 betas behind macOS 10.12.4 and 7 in the case of watchOS 3.2. Will this mean that we will see the final versions in a hypothetical Apple event in April? Everything seems to point to yes, and Apple is finalizing the operating systems to have them ready for official release.
The new features that these betas bring us are not significant at a visual level, but obviously they have a great weight at an internal level, since they solve various security or performance problems, which is what Cupertino’s company is polishing. What new features will we see in the final versions?
What’s New in MacOS 10.12.4
Among the new features found in MacOS 10.12.4, the most prominent is the night mode, which and we found in iOS 10. This will allow us to navigate our Mac without damaging our eyesight when we are in low light environments.
As with iOS 10.3, Siri will inform you about all cricket results and statistics. The PDFKit API has been updated for third-party applications that use it.
If you want to see all that macOS 10.12.4 has in store for us, I invite you to watch this video on our 5×1 YouTube channel.
What will we see in watchOS 3.2?
In this succession of betas SiriKit has been available to developers to integrate Siri into their applications , as it now works with iOS 10. Currently with Siri in the Apple Watch we can only give you a few simple commands like calling a contact or activating the timer.
The new theatre mode is also incorporated, which will put our Apple Watch to sleep. If activated, when you turn your wrist the screen will not turn on unless you touch it or press the digital crown.
This is all we know so far about these two versions of the major operating systems. What do you think about it? Do you think we’ll see the final versions soon?
