Apple Releases Third Public Beta of macOS Sierra

Apple on Tuesday released the third public beta of its upcoming Mac operating system, macOS Sierra. The new public beta comes two weeks after the second public beta release, and just one day after the fourth developer beta of the new Mac operating system.

The new beta release is available to Mac users who have signed up for the Apple Public Beta Program via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store. Today’s public beta should be the same build as Monday’s developer release.

macOS Sierra Features

macOS Sierra brings a number of new features to Mac users, including Siri. Apple’s virtual personal assistant makes her move to the Mac. The familiar features of Siri are now available with just a click of the mouse or a hotkey combination. The assistant is available from the Dock, Menu Bar, or the Mac keyboard.

Users will be able to use voice commands to search for information, find files and send messages. Siri will be able to find a specific document you worked on last night, add a meeting to your calendar, play music, start a FaceTime call, and much more.

Users can also drag-and-drop items from Siri search results directly into documents or emails. Siri results can be pinned in Notification Center, handy for sports scores and stock prices, and Siri can even adjust system preferences, set reminders, and search your Photos library.

Other New Features

macOS Sierra allows users to have all the files on their desktop and in their Documents folder available on any Mac, iOS device, or PC. Users simply save their files in their Documents folder, or on their Desktop, and the files will follow them across devices.

Continuity on the Mac gets a boost, with copy & paste between devices. Universal Clipboard will allow copy & pasting the contents of your clipboard across all your Apple devices, via iCloud. Copy & paste information between your iOS devices and Mac.

Mac users will be able to use Apple Pay to pay when shopping on participating websites. Just click the Apple Pay button on the website when you checkout, then authorize payment for the purchase via the Touch ID sensor on your iPhone, or by using your Apple Watch.


macOS Sierra beta releases are currently available only to developers and members of the public beta program. The new operating system will be released to the general public later this year.

    Auto-sync Documents folder to iCloud? Seriously? I can’t believe Apple thought users would appreciate this blatant abuse of trust. It totally bjorks performance and explodes the demand for iCloud storage subscriptions. Gee, I wonder why Apple made this change…oh, I get it. Shame on you Apple for abusing customer trust. It seems that the marketing and business hacks are beginning creep back in and overrule common sense now that SJ is no longer around.
    Hey Apple, if you’re listening… trust is a valuable thing and really hard to regain once you loose it.
