When it comes to getting beta software into the hands of the people that need to test it, Apple is on top of its game right now.

We seem to constantly have a new beta release of iOS in particular and macOS is not far behind. Having released new beta builds of both to developers very recently indeed, Apple has today pushed those same betas to non-developers who are part of its public beta program. Both the second beta of iOS 10.3.2 and the second beta of macOS 10.12.5 are now available to download.

When it comes to iOS, users can download the update right now via the usual process of selecting the update in the Settings app, with the whole thing taken care of via an OTA update. That update brings the latest beta release to any iPhone or iPad that has the public beta profile installed, and brings all the latest changes and additions added by Apple in the build.

According to its own release notes, and as we have covered very recently ourselves, that includes a fix for SiriKit car commands, which previously had issues. Other changes are also included, though nothing that jumps out at us as vital beyond simple bug and security fixes.

Users of macOS can get their public beta by heading on over to the Mac App Store and downloading the latest beta release from there. With regards to the changes in macOS 10.12.5, there is, once again, little to write home about, at least as far as as Apple’s own release notes are concerned. In fact, Apple simply says that the update “improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.” So yeah, all three of those things are good things to have!

If you are on either public beta program, we suggest downloading the relevant update without delay.
