As expected, although the introduction of the upcoming Apple OS versions is only about three weeks away the current versions are continuing to be developed, even after Monday’s batch of Software Updates for all kinds of Apple fans. The iPhone and iPad got iOS 10.3.2 that focuses on security improvements and minor bug fixes. The Apple Watch now runs on watchOS 3.2.2, a minor update with under-the-hood changes, while the 4th generation Apple TV and all Mac computers have also received their respective software updates.
One day later, the Cupertino-located tech giant has already seeded a fresh new batch of Developer Betas for the upcoming software versions: iOS 10.3.3, watchOS 3.2.2, tvOS 10.2.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6. The initial test versions doesn’t seem to include any new features and you shouldn’t expect significant changes. All remaining updates from now on until this fall, when iOS 11, watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and macOS 11 are expected to go live to the general public, will most likely focus on bug fixes and security patches.
