Apple on Monday seeded the seventh beta of macOS Sierra to developers. Registered Mac developers running the latest betas can update via the Mac App Store, or access the standalone download in the developer center.

Today’s release comes a week after Apple issued beta 6 of macOS Sierra to developers and 3 days after beta 7 of iOS 10 was released. Apple has entered the fine-tuning stage as it prepares to release the updates to the public.

Though Apple chose this year to rebrand OS X to macOS, the update isn’t a significant one. There are just a few notable user-facing changes including Siri for Mac, Universal Clipboard support, and Picture-in-Picture support.

We are currently installing beta 7, and will report back with any changes that we feel are worth mentioning. If you spot something noteworthy we’ve missed, leave a comment below or email us at

Update: Apple has also released beta 6 of macOS Sierra to public testers, which you can find at
