Apple seeds fourth beta of iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10 and macOS Sierra to developers

Two weeks following the release of the third beta of iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Apple on Monday issued iOS 10 beta 4, macOS Sierra beta 4, watchOS 3 beta 4 and tvOS 10 beta 4 to members of the Apple Developer Program. The public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra matching the latest developer-only releases should be released tomorrow to public beta testers enrolled with the Apple Beta Software Program.

Here’s a summary of OS updates Apple released today:
  • iOS 10 beta 4 (build number “14A5322e”)
  • macOS Sierra beta 4 (build number “16A270f”)
  • watchOS 3 beta 4 (build number “14S5302d”)
  • tvOS 10 beta 4 (build number “14T5308d”)
  • Xcode 8 beta 4 (build number “8S188o”)
  • Safari 10 beta 4 for El Capitan and Yosemite
watchOS 3 comes with a number of new features, but most importantly, it packs some major performance improvements that greatly improve the responsiveness of the OS and third-party apps. Some of the new features that are a part of watchOS 3 include Control Center, Dock, new watch faces, APIs for developers, background app refresh, and more. You can read more about watchOS 3 here.

To get watchOS 3 beta 4 on your Apple Watch, you will have to install the configuration profile from Apple’s developer center directly on the watch to receive the OTA update.

tvOS 10 beta is only meant for the Apple TV 4. Like with the Apple Watch, you need to install a configuration profile directly on the device to receive the OTA update to tvOS 10 beta 3. While Apple is also providing an image for restoration purposes, make sure that you have Xcode 8 installed on your Mac before you start with the actual restore process.
