Apart from iOS 9.3.2 beta 1, Apple has also seeded OS X 10.11.5, watchOS 2.2.1, tvOS 9.2.1 beta 1 for Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV 4, respectively.

Apple’s engineering team is in full swing it seems, and has deemed this day to be fit for releasing a bunch of beta software for all of its mobile devices as well as the Mac.

OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta 1

Available only through the Apple Developer Program portal, OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan beta 1 seems to be a bug fix and performance release aiming to make the entire Mac experience as smooth as possible across the board. Simply log into the Apple Developer Program website using your credentials, and grab the first beta build from the ‘Resources’ section.

watchOS 2.2.1 Beta 1

watchOS is slowly evolving into a powerful little operating system by taking baby steps into the future, with watchOS 2.2.1 beta 1 being a clear sign that Cupertino’s wearable device has a long way to go before running out of air. Also it’s worth mentioning at this point that you cannot downgrade your Apple Watch to the public build if you have decided to update to watchOS 2.2.1 beta 1.

tvOS 9.2 was released a while back for Apple TV 4 and came packed a bunch of great features under the hood. And while we don’t have any complaints regarding Cupertino’s software for its set-top box, but it could definitely use some work in small corners, specially when it comes to performance. And today’s release seems to address that bit, as well as fix a few bugs in the process.

Just like the other betas, tvOS 9.2.1 beta 1 can be grabbed from the Apple Developer Program website under the ‘Resources’ tab. And in case you’re wondering, it’s a paid download and your Apple TV 4 must be registered with Apple if you’re going ahead with the installation process.

We encourage developers to get to grips with the newly released beta software to ensure that their apps and games work flawlessly. And in case there’s work needed to be done before Apple releases its software into the public domain, developers will have ample amount of time to fix things.
