Apple’s next version of its proprietary operating system for computers will be out in a while. The company is taking baby steps towards the completion of this software. A couple of days ago, the Cupertino giant released the second developer beta of the OS. Based on this, users worldwide can now gain access to the first public beta of macOS Sierra.
While its not a great idea to install the beta of an operating system onto your working computer, if you are someone who likes to keep on the edge of technology, this release is for you. The recommended way of making use of this beta, enjoying it without loosing much is on a useless Mac you may have.
If that’s not the case, it’s a good idea to backup all your data and settings properly. Another important thing to keep in mind is that even iCloud may fail you. You may end up loosing your files and documents in case you try out any of the new features.
The beta is currently available for anyone to download from the Mac App Store. All you have to do is sign up for the public beta program at beta.apple.com. Follow the instructions there and then open up the Mac App Store and download the second public beta of Apple’s newest OS.
Features of Sierra
The latest OS in Apple Mac lineup brings in many amazing and demanded features. We get Siri integration along with auto-unlocking with the Apple Watch. Another great feature macOS Sierra is bringing in tow is Apple Pay for web.
Not just this, the Apple Music app has been completely redesigned as the company had promised and we get a “Memories” tab in Photos. Expanded Continuity features, storage optimizations, enhances file management system with native encryption and a universal clipboard are other goodies coming with macOS Sierra.
In iOS 9, Apple introduced a Picture in Picture multitasking feature for iPads, and in macOS Sierra, that feature is expanding to the Mac. Tabs are also being expanded from Safari to all Mac apps that support multiple windows, such as Maps, Mail, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and more.
Sierra will be officially released this fall, but if you want to try it now, the public builds are being rolled out right now.
