Apple releases new minor beta versions for, well, everything

All Things Mac
April 6, 2016

Just more than two weeks after the public release of iOS 9.3, and days after publishing iOS 9.3.1, Apple has seeded new betas to developers. There are incremental beta versions available now for OS X El Capitan, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Since these betas are incremental updates, all of them are likely just bug-fixes.

In the third update to iOS 9, Apple has released an incremental beta labeled iOS 9.3.2. The release notes don’t say much, and since these are incremental updates, all of them are likely just bug-fixes. What the release notes do indicate is that iOS 9.3.2 focuses on under-the-hood performance improvements and fixes for bugs that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.3. Specifically, the new build should address developer-specific issues and workarounds for Dictionary, iBooks, Safari, and Simulator. The new build, 13F51a, is available for download immediately from the Apple Developer Center.

On the watchOS front, the new build is 13V413. The release notes point to issues and workarounds for watchOS 1 WatchKit apps, along with fixing problems with Xcode crashes.

The tvOS update of 9.2.1 comes in with build number 13Y5742b. For OS X El Capitan, 10.11.5 carries build number 15F18b.

As we discover more about what these beta builds offer developers, we’ll be sure to update you. Some of these may release as part of Apple’s public beta program, and we will be sure to let you know if that comes to pass.
