Just two months after the announcement made in Apple?s WWDC 2016, the tech giant has released the fifth beta version of the macOS Sierra to developers. This gives rise to rumors that the new operating system is nearing its completion and may be publicly released together with much talked about MacBook Pro 2016.
With only a week from the previous beta release, developers and users alike are beginning to think that macOS Sierra is finally reaching maturity.
As announced in this year?s Worldwide Developers? Conference, macOS Sierra boasts Siri integration. As well as new features like Continuity, Universal Clipboard, and deeper iCloud integration. The integration of Siri in the operating system enables users to perform searches via voice. Users can also compose messages, check the weather, and set appointments.
macOS Sierra is currently downloadable for developers as well as for public beta testers. The public can participate in the beta test by registering to Apple?s beta test program and then downloading the operating system from the App Store.
A word of caution though, beta versions are inherently ?buggy?. It is highly recommended that testers use a spare Mac computer for testing as some bugs may result to inconveniences. The previous public beta 3 had a huge issue with memory leakage. This crippled performance especially for machines with small or limited RAM. Luckily, Apple released the public beta 4 that resolved this issue.
According to the general chatter, the MacBook Pro 2016 will showcase major design changes. On top of the list is the OLED Touch Bar to replace the function keys above the keyboard. The MacBook Pro is also reported to have TouchID support as well as USB Type-C. The USB Type-C port will replace Apple?s MagSafe 2.
With rumors circulating about the supposed images of the new MacBook Pro 2016 and frequent releases of the macOs Sierra beta, consumers are beginning to think that Apple intends to publicly release these two together. Whether it is true or not, all of us would have to wait and see.
