Apple recently released four beta builds for macOS, watchOS, tvOS and iOS, and each one has new features to enjoy and repairs to bugs.

iOS Beta 3

The iOS Beta 3 has an array of functions that relate to the device’s Touch ID and lock screen. In previous betas, people had to hit the home screen button to start up the Touch ID. Today, if a thumb on the button, and it doesn’t even have to be touched, starts it up.

A second change occurs when the smartphone locks – the lock screen sounds provide haptic feedback. During a previous beta version, the keyboard sounds had been removed, but they are now back. The lock screen, which has been redesigned, has more notifications and information. It much easier to use like Apple News and Apple Music



This iOS beta version has fixed a multitude of things such as the crashing of programs Apple Music and Notes. Other issues that relate to Siri were also fixed.

MacOS

macOS Sierra saw many repairs on its apps such as Apple Pay, iBooks, Photos, Safari and Siri, which is the only semi-working program on Sierra.

tvOS

The third tvOS beta doesn’t have as many fixes as other programs, but that doesn’t make them any less important. Controllers and music playback are repaired, but the problems persist with the podcasts and photos.

watchOS

The update for watchOS repairs a few bugs. The problem of Apple Pay crashing has been addressed. The notifications from the calendar and clock… gone. The fix also took care of connectivity issues, Homekit and Siri.

People can download the beta from Apple’s developer’s console.
