Apple has just released for download beta 5 of macOS 10.12.4 for all compatible MacBooks and iMacs out there. Coming approximately seven days after beta 4, beta 5 of macOS 10.12.4 can be downloaded by users registered and enrolled as members of the Apple Developer Program.

This release represents yet another step by Apple towards deeming the aforementioned platform ready for public consumption ahead of ultimately releasing to all Mac owners globally.

As mentioned, for owners with Macs, Apple is presenting macOS 10.12.4 beta 5 for testing purposes. This latest beta is once again an evolutionary release with bug fixes, general improvements, and stability enhancements, which sit alongside the feature additions added in the early betas.

Some of those feature improvements include Night Shift mode, as well as the ability for developers to actually reply directly to comments left on App Store pages, among other minor changes.

As always, this new beta 5 seed is immediately available for download and can be installed through the usual mechanism, which is through the Updates tab on the Mac App Store for those who already have a previous beta version of the software running.

Those new to developer bits though will need to first head to developer.apple.com for accessing bits required to install macOS 10.12.4 beta 5.

As of right now, macOS 10.12.4 beta 5 is available to those registered on Apple Developer Program only but it’s only a matter of time before Apple makes it available to public testers registered on Apple Beta Software Program.

It will be interesting to see if Apple will seed beta 5 of iOS 10.3, watchOS 3.2 and tvOS 10.2 as all of these platforms sit on beta 4 released last week while macOS 10.12.4 has now got its beta 5 seed.

As always is the case, we will keep you updated on this as it develops. Stay tuned.
