#iOS #iOS10 – Apple Releases iOS 10.2, macOS 10.12.2, and watchOS 3.1.1 Beta 4 to Developers : While tvOS 10.1 and Xcode 8.2 Beta progress is on hold for now, Apple just seeded the fourth Beta of iOS 10.2, macOS Sierra 10.12.2, and watchOS 3.1.1 to application developers enrolled in the company’s Apple Developer program. The new builds are tagged as 14C82 for iOS 10.2 Beta 4, 16C53a for macOS 10.12.2 Beta 4, and 14S879 for watchOS 3.1.1.
As usual, these new Beta versions bring various improvements and bug fixes to several of the built-in apps, including the new TV app that will ship with iOS 10.2 as a replacement for Videos app, such as the implementation of a “Clear Play History” setting for deleting the movies or TV shows you’ve watched across all of your devices.
Also new in iOS 10.2 Beta 4, you should no longer get frequent alerts to connect your applications to TV, and the correct artwork will be displayed for the content synced in the TV app’s library. The macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Beta 4 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac with new under-the-hood fixes.
Public Beta 4 builds should be available shortly
As with any new Beta release, we expect Apple to push the Public Beta versions to the rest of the world so we can update our devices running the third Public Beta version or a previous one and get all the improvements the Cupertino company prepared for the Beta 4 milestone. Public Beta 4 builds should be available in the next 24 hours.
