The Fifth MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 Beta

Fifth macOS Sierra 10.12.5 developer beta will be rolled out through Apple Mac App Store. Incidentally, macOS Sierra 10.12.5 is now available to developers, and public beta versions normally arrive a few days following the developer versions or at the same day.

The macOS 10.12.5 Developer Beta Will Be A Minor Update

The upcoming macOS 10.12.5 update follows macOS 10.12.4 that brought the color shifting Night Shift feature to the Mac. Meantime, reports suggest that Apple is also running the developer betas for watchOS 3.2.2, iOS 10.3.2 and tvOS 10.2.1.

The macOS 10.12.5 version number, including the absence of release notes, implies that the update will be a minor one that focuses on bug fixes and security improvements prior to the macOS 10.13, which is coming later this year. Meantime, rumors claim that Apple may not unveil the next major update at WWDc 2017 on June 5, 9to5mac reported.

The macOS 10.12.5 May Come With A Patch For Other Features

The macOS 10.12.5 update is expected to include a patch for the new PDFKit APIs and iCloud Analytics that were previously revealed through macOS Sierra 10.12.4. Furthermore, the Internet Recovery options have also been expanded with a USB audio controller chip bug.

Meantime, the Night Shift mode is a feature that is activated through the Display section found under the machine's System Preferences. As the name suggests, the mode is a feature that helps Mac in telling when sunrise and sunset are available, and a power-related feature as well that could save the energy consumption.

The macOS 10.12.5 feature may be turned on and off manually through the Notifications Center or via Siri, 9to5mac reported. Learn How to Get and Install macOS Sierra 10.12.5 Developer Beta 2 here:
