Seven days following the release of a seventh beta of macOS Sierra, Apple today seeded an eighth beta of the upcoming software to its registered developers and public beta testers. Both macOS Sierra beta 7 for members of the Apple Developer Program and macOS Sierra beta 7 for members of the Apple Beta Software Program are now available through the Mac App Store on computers with an appropriate configuration profile and as standalone downloads on Dev Center.

macOS Sierra will release in the fall, with the exact release date expected to be announced at the September 7 iPhone 7 event.

Sierra brings out several new features, including Siri, the ability to unlock your computer by wearing an Apple Watch, syncing of your account’s Documents and Desktop folders via iCloud Drive, tabs in almost every app, Apple Pay on websites, picture-in-picture support, copy/paste between devices, Photos improvements and more.

    It’s been great on my secondary computer (MacBook Air 2012) save for the fact that Duet Display won’t work with a beta OS (a conscious decision on the Duet devs’ part).

    One week out, and my experience says it’s okay to go full on with the primary (Mac mini 2014).
