Apple has released the first beta builds of OS X 10.11.4 (and yes, OS X 10.11.3 is still at beta 2), tvOS 9.2, WatchOS 2.2, and iOS 9.3 for users enrolled in the developer beta programs.

OS X 10.11.4 beta 1 arrives as build 15E27e and is likely a compatibility update for users running the other beta releases, as a new version of Xcode coincides with the release as well. There are no known feature inclusions with OS X 10.11.4, so it will likely focus on compatibility and bug fixes.

WatchOS 2.2 beta 1 appears to be primarily focused on bug fixes and compatibility as well, and includes support for paired iPhones to pair with multiple Apple Watch devices.

tvOS 9.2 beta 1 includes support for Bluetooth keyboards, which has been a much desired feature, and also includes support for folders. Several other feature enhancements and refinements are bundled with the beta release for 4th generation Apple TV hardware.
