What’s new in Beta 3’s:
OS X 10.11.4 Beta 3:
It’s been almost 3 weeks since apple started working on 10.11.4 which officially began in January 2016. The second beta was given to developers about two weeks ago and yesterday was one other day for Apple’s stream of OS updates.
The new update only includes a new feature like password protected encrypted notes in the Notes app. Sounds familiar? Yes it is made similar like in iOS 9.3 intoduction, which we are aware of. Other than that few bug fixes and developments for the previous version are apple’s primary focus.
watchOS 2.2 Beta 3:
Just like OS X, tvOS 9.2 and iOS 9.3 Apple has released this 3rd beta for watchOS 2.2 after two weeks. watchOS 2.1 was made available two months ago, and the 2.2 update bought features like easily connecting with the iPhone.
You can download it by connecting to your iPhone and updating the previous beta OS. Like second beta this update also helps connecting multiple watches to a single iPhone but on one condition. The iPhone must have iOS 9.3 software to pair with Watch having 2.2 beta 3. One brilliant feature introduced is changes to the Maps app which helps to find Near by places. Few minor bug fixes and improvements are included.
tvOS 9.2 beta 3:
Unlike OS X and iOS, tv OS is a bit difficult to download for the users who aren’t on 2nd beta of tv OS 9.2. If you are already on beta 2, then you can get this as an Over-The-Air (OTA) update. For others in-order to get the latest version you need to connect your Tv to the Mac or local computer with a cable. First download the file from Apple developer site and install it through iTunes.
tvOS 9.2 consists of new features like Bluetooth supported keyboard and grouping of apps on home screen just like in iOS. Live photos and support for iCloud photo libraray are also included. Apple Tv 4 developers can now download this pre-release version from their Tv’s as well as from developer site.
Beta 3 for tvOS includes new features like dictation for Siri. Soon after you install this update the Tv OS asks you to enable or disable Siri dictation on which you can dictate or spell a word without actually typing them. And also you can search for apps in the App store by using Siri.
We’re expected to have the final versions of OS X 10.11.4, tvOS 9.2, watchOS 2.2 and iOS 9.3 at the company’s March event where the new iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 is going to be revealed.
