Monday, Apple issued a fifth beta for the upcoming macOS Sierra 10.12.5 software update to its registered developers and members of the Apple Developer Program. The latest macOS Sierra 10.12.5 beta 5 (build 16F71b) software can be obtained via the Mac App Store’s Updates tab on supported Mac models with a prior beta and an appropriate configuration profile.
The new beta build for macOS Sierra 10.12.5 arrived four days after iOS 10.3.2 beta 5 was made available to developers. Apple’s latest maintenance OS updates should release for public consumption ahead of WWDC in June.
Aside from bringing iOS 9’s Night Shift mode to your Mac, the previous macOS Sierra 10.12.4 update included Dictation support for Shanghainese, an updated PDF API fixing rendering issues, a new iCloud Analytics feature and Siri sports improvements.
Release notes accompanying the first developer-only beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.5 state that the software improves the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac.
macOS and iOS betas are available to non-developers via the Apple Beta Software Program.
