Apple beta system software

Apple has released the fifth beta versions of macOS 10.12.6 and iOS 10.3.3 to users participating in the relevant beta testing programs.

Users who are participating in the beta testing programs can find iOS 10.3.3 beta 5 via the Software Update mechanism of iOS Settings, and macOS 10.12.6 beta 5 can be found via the App Store Updates section.

iOS 10.3.3 beta 5 appears to be mostly a bug fix release and does not include any notable changes, it has also largely be overshadowed by the ongoing iOS 11 public beta, which is available to download and install right now and brings with it much more significant features and changes.

macOS 10.12.6 beta 5 appears to focus on a few particular bug fixes and security enhancements, and also does not include any significant new features or changes. The macOS 10.13 High Sierra public beta with its variety of new changes is yet to be released however, and currently remains as a developer beta instead.

Apple usually goes through a variety of beta releases before issuing the final version, perhaps suggesting a final build of iOS 10.3.3 and MacOS 10.12.6 could be released sometime in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra are both due as final releases in the fall.

    A question on a very different topic… hopefully you will be able to answer….

    How can you delete (free up memory) pictures/videos on a mac or iPhone such that they will not be deleted in iCloud as well…. If i try to delete a picture in my MAC or the iPhone, I get a message that states that it will also be deleted in the cloud and in all other devices….. How can you delete it to free up the space…. Does photo not work like iTunes, where you have access to all your music and once you down load a song to your iPhone, if you want to free space, yo just delete it… and then if you want to, you can re-down load it….
    Please help, I have way to many pictures in my Mac and iPhone, but I do not want to delete them fore ever….

      You can not do that with iCloud, that is not how iCloud works.

      If you want to store items in the cloud and remove them locally to save local storage, you should use a third party service like Dropbox, which can work how you describe.

      Why don’t you just use Google Photos? It offers unlimited storage, plus their machine learning means you do not have to worry about categorizing anything. It does it all for you.
