Apple Seeds Developer Beta 2 For OS X 10.11.6, tvOS 9.2.2 And First Beta For watchOS 2.2.2
Approximately two weeks after the release of first OS X 10.11.6 and tvOS 9.2.2 beta, Apple has now seen fit to release the second beta for the aforesaid software for tvOS and Mac, respectively. However, the company missed out on the first beta of watchOS, but this time it didn’t. So alongside the developer beta 2 of OS X 10.11.6 and tvOS 9.2.2, Apple has also released the first developer beta for watchOS 2.2.2. So let’s dive in to see what’s new in the beta 2 of Apple’s upcoming firmware for its various devices.
Apple Released Beta 2 For OS X 10.11.6, tvOS 9.2.2 And First Beta Of watchOS 2.2.2 To Developers
The build number of Apple’s latest beta for OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 is 15G12a and it can be downloaded through the Update tab in the Mac App Store. However, make sure that your Mac should already be running the first beta of OS X 10.11.6. If your mac is not running the previous build of OS X 10.11.6, you can get it through the Apple Developer Center.
In terms of installing the beta 2 update for tvOS 9.2.2 on your fourth generation Apple TV, your set-top box must be connected to a computer via a USB-C to USB-A cable. Once the connection between your Apple TV 4 and computer has been made, the beta 3 update should be downloaded from iTunes and directly installed on your device.
watchOS 2.2.2 beta 2 for developers can be installed on your Apple Watch via your iPhone. Download the beta 2 software on your iPhone and then connect your Apple Watch with your phone. However, make sure that your Apple Watch has at least 50 percent of battery life remaining. If it’s not, you can always plug it in and charge while your iPhone installs the beta 2 firmware. Moreover, make sure your iPhone is also running the iOS 9.3.3 beta 2 firmware, which Apple released today. Other than this, also make sure that your Apple Watch is in a close range of your iPhone.
At this point in time, we do not expect Apple to include any forward-facing features in any of its firmware updates. This is because the company is looking forward to adding extra features in the next upgraded software for its devices. As far as the beta 2 is concerned, the update only brings bug fixes and performance enhancements to the table. Nonetheless, we will definitely keep you guys posted for any changes that we find in the beta upgrades.
