Apple on Monday seeded the third beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.1 to developers for testing. The new seed comes just short of a week after the release of the second beta seed.

Apple Seeds Third Beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.1 to Developers

The new beta – build 16B2338c – can be downloaded via the Apple Developer Center, or via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store.

Few visible changes were discovered in the first beta. However, it did include an update to the Photos app, which offers support for the new iPhone 7 Plus Portrait feature introduced with the iOS 10.1 beta.

At this point in time, we don’t know what, if any, other changes are in store in this beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.1, but it likely addresses any bugs found in the new operating system since its release, as well as the usual performance improvements. We’ll report in this space what new features, if any, that are discovered in the new beta seed.
