Today, the Cupertino camp has released the sixth beta of OS X 10.11.4 to developers and public beta testers. Moreover, watchOS 2.2 beta six has also been released to developers for further testing. The latest release is followed by the fifth beta, which was distributed last week and the first beta was seeded earlier in January. Both of the forthcoming firmwares do not include a bevy of new features. Mostly, the update is concerned with bug fixes and under the hood improvements. In case of the Apple Watch's watchOS 2.2, it is a significantly minor update. So let's see some details on the sixth beta of OS X 10.11.4 and watchOS 2.2.

It's been well over six weeks since Apple seeded the first beta of OS X 10.11.4. As we have mentioned earlier, the new software is not stocked with a plethora of new feature additions. However, the company did bring support for Live Photos in the Messages app. Moreover, the Notes app is now password protected. Apple is also working on importing data and notes from Evernote into the stock Notes app. The bug fixes included within the update has also fixed the issue regarding opening web links on Twitter, that previously, led to broken paths.

With watchOS 2.2, you can now pair two Apple Watches with a single iPhone running iOS 9.3 beta already. At this point, we haven't seen any user-facing features added in the updated beta.
