Apple beta system software

Apple has issued a variety of updates to their beta system software efforts, including iOS 9.3.2 beta 4, OS X 10.11.5 beta 4, and tvOS 9.2.1 beta 4.

The beta builds are available to download now for both regular developer testers as well as users participating in the public beta testing programs for the respective operating systems. Users can find the updates through the OTA update mechanism in Settings or the App Store, as well as the official Apple Developer site.

No new features are expected in the beta point releases, as the builds are likely to continue refining the user experience and patching bugs found in the various system software releases. It’s unclear if the latest OS X 10.11.5 beta resolves the mysterious freezing issue in OS X 10.11.4 that is impacting a select group of Mac Safari users, but presumably the final 10.11.5 build will.

Perhaps the most notable user facing change discovered thus far is in iOS 9.3.2, where users are allowed to enable Night Shift and have Low Power Mode enabled concurrently, two features which compliment each other nicely.

Apple typically rolls through several beta builds before issuing a final public version of system software. Given the current near weekly beta release schedule, users could reasonably expect the final versions of iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5, tvOS 9.2.1, and WatchOS 2.2.1 to be available toward the end of May or early June.

    Does anyone know if the issue of ripped MP4 files no longer displaying the (short) description has been resolved in the latest beta? It’s still blank in tvOS 9.2. Apparently this value is calling information from the long description field, where previously it was calling information from the short description field.

    Yes, there is a workaround of using AppleScript to copy the short description to the long description, however it’s not a permanent fix. Additionally, there is no way to edit the long description in Get Info.

    Will this El Capitan update fix the FaceTime issues that Apple Support can’t even figure out for me?

    • Edward Scissor Hands says:

      Most Facebook troubles can be remedied by making sure that both you and the other FaceTime caller are using the latest version of iOS / Mac OS, preferably the exact same version of the latest version. Any version discrepancy seems to cause a problem with FaceTime.

      This is why older devices can’t Facetime reliably with newer devices, and why so many people have problems with it working at all. Surely Apple could make it backwards compatible but they don’t seem too interested in doing that. Your friends/family upgraded to new hardware and so you should spend $600 to $1500 too I am sure is their thinking under Tim Cook which primarily appears to serve shareholders first, executives second, employees third, and customers in the distant far last.
