The first macOS Sierra 10.12.4 beta is available for download through the Apple Developer Center or the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store. A public beta will likely be available for public beta testers later this week.
We don’t yet know exactly what features, bug fixes, or changes will be introduced in the macOS Sierra 10.12.4 beta, but because it accompanies iOS 10.3, it could be a more significant update that focuses on changes beyond bug fixes. According to Apple, the update includes a new Night Shift mode that automatically shifts the display color to the warmer end of the spectrum after night.
It’s often more difficult to determine what changes are included in macOS updates compared to iOS updates, so we may not know the full extent of what’s new until the software is released to the public and accompanied by official release notes. We’ll update this post should any new changes be found in the first beta.
Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 10.2 update to developers for testing purposes, one month after releasing tvOS 10.1, the first major update to the tvOS 10 operating system. tvOS 10.2 comes a day after Apple released tvOS 10.1.1.
Designed for the fourth-generation Apple TV, the tvOS 10.2 beta can be obtained by connecting the Apple TV to a computer with a USB-C to USB-A cable, downloading and installing the software from a registered developer account via iTunes or Apple Configurator.
Given the tricky installation requirements, tvOS betas are limited to developers and will not be provided to the public.
We don’t yet know what’s included in tvOS 10.2, but as a 10.x update, it could potentially include new features and design changes above and beyond the standard bug fixes and performance improvements. We’ll update this post should any new features be discovered in the tvOS 10.2 update.
Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 10.3 update to developers, marking the third major update to the iOS 10 operating system that was released in September. The first iOS 10.3 beta comes more than a month after the release of iOS 10.2.
Registered developers can download the new iOS 10.3 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.
As a 10.x update, iOS 10.3 likely brings bug fixes, performance improvements, and new features to iOS 10. While we won’t know what’s in the update until developers begin discovering changes, it is rumored to include a new “Theatre” mode with a “popcorn-shaped” icon in the Control Center.
What the rumored Theatre mode does is unclear, but should it be included in iOS 10.3, we’ll find out its purpose soon enough. We’ll update this post with new features that are found in the update.

The Pokémon Company today launched its newest game designed for iOS devices, debuting Pokémon Duel. Pokémon Duel is a strategy board game where the goal is to collect a range of different Amiibo-style Pokémon figures, each of which has unique abilities.
Six Pokémon figures are used to build a deck, and with a deck, players can compete with other gamers around the world in ranked League Matches.
According to the app’s description, the object of each game is to be the first player to get a figure to the other player’s goal, carefully choosing a route and using strategy to outmaneuver an opponent.
The rules are simple! The object is to be the first player to get one of your figures to your opponent’s goal. How will you get to the goal? You’ll need to carefully choose your route! In duels, you and your opponent take turns moving your figures. Set up a strategic formation and attack your opponent, or simply block their path–it’s all about tactics! Plan your strategy and defeat your opponents in this game of cat and mouse!
Pokémon Duel is compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 8 or higher. The game is free to play, but includes gems that can be purchased in-app to speed up and enhance gameplay.
Pokémon Duel was previously available to iOS users in Japan, but is today expanding to the United States and other countries around the world.
