Apple Issues Fourth Betas of OS X, iOS, tvOS

Posted by at 8:06 am on May 11, 2016



One week after the previous releases, Apple on Tuesday released developer versions of the fourth betas for iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5, and tvOS 9.2.1. A new release of the developer-only watchOS 2.2 is still missing from the lineup, and no third beta for the wearable’s OS version appeared last week either. It is possible that Apple has opted to bring the watchOS beta in-house again in order to prevent leaks of any notable changes, or it could signal that the minor 2.2 update is imminent.

The fourth beta of iOS 9.3.2 carries a build number of 13F68. The two main changes in the release, which is focused on bug fixes and interface tweaking, is a fix for a months-long Game Center bug that would sometimes block some turn-based games from playing. The ability to use the color-shifting Night Shift feature in Low Power mode has also been restored, having been left out of previous betas.

The OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 beta is build 15F31a, while the tvOS 9.2.1 beta carries a build number of 13Y772. Public-tester versions of the iOS and OS X updates are likely to be released tomorrow, while the tvOS betas remain developer-only. It is thought that the updates for all four platforms will be released ahead of next month’s Worldwide Developer Conference, and that sneak peeks of the next major upgrades will be offered at the conference — which may also include a renaming of OS X to “macOS,” or possibly “MacOS,” if rumors of an alignment of OS naming conventions turns out to be true.
