Beta 3 of macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 Released for Testing
Apple has released beta 3 of macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra to users enrolled in the beta testing programs.
Those eligible to receive beta system software updates for macOS can find the update available now via the Mac App Store Updates section.
The beta builds of macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 likely focus on bug fixes, security updates, and feature improvements, but also include support for hundreds of new Emoji icons, including a scarf, hedgehog, a bearded person, a vampire, an I Love You gesture, avocado, pie, zebra, fortune cookie, a pixie, a vomiting face, a dinosaur, multiple gender neutral emojis, broccoli, and more. Each of the new emoji icons are included in iOS and watchOS betas as well.
Presumably the eventual release of macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 will fix some of the various reported problems with macOS High Sierra. Though a timeline is not known, Apple typically releases multiple beta builds before issuing a final version, so it would be reasonable to expect a final build of 10.13.1 in the coming months.
Separately, iOS 11.1 beta 3 is also available for testing purposes for both developer and public beta users, along with beta 3 of watchOS 4.1 and tvOS 11.1.
