Download Official 2016 MacBook Pro Wallpapers From macOS 10.12.2 Beta 4
You can now download the official 2016 MacBook Pro Color Burst wallpapers from macOS 10.12.2 beta 4. Here are the details.
Apple’s latest pre-release seed of macOS 10.12.2 contains the new Color Burst wallpapers that have previously been seen in Apple’s MacBook Pro with Touch Bar marketing material. In addition to progressing the platform, and hopefully getting into a position where it’s nearly ready to give to the general public across a wide variety of Macs, Apple has also provided a new visual treat for those who love to customize the desktop of their Mac with new and varying images in macOS 10.12.2 beta 4.
Tim Cook’s company has a history of teasing new, vivid and visually appealing wallpapers as part of the marketing of a new product, and then not immediately making those images available as part of the operating system that powers the aforementioned hardware.
It was only with a recent iOS update that we actually saw Apple give access to the wallpapers used in the iPhone 7 marketing material. This latest macOS 10.12.2 beta means that developers and those testing the platform can access the new Color Burst wallpapers, but the public will need to wait until macOS 10.12.2 is released via the Mac App Store on a worldwide scale to get them. At least officially, anyway.
Of course, being the giving and caring individuals that we are here at RP, we really don’t want you to have to wait that long when you could be adorning your desktop with those simply stunning wallpapers containing extremely impressive bursts of color right now. There are four images to choose from. Three of those wallpapers are fairly similar, showing an exploding array of colors emanating from a central point with a full black background, with the only difference being the colors used in the image. The fourth image is slightly different, offering a full-screen color fest with layers of stunning visuals that looked beautiful on the new MacBook Pro.
In addition to shipping with the new Color Burst wallpapers, Mac owners can expect a version of macOS 10.12.2 that includes support for Unicode 9 emoji characters to better fall in line with what’s being offered in iOS 10.2 and watchOS 3.1.1, as well as the usual slew of bug fixes, performance improvements and compatibility enhancements to better support the new Touch Bar and Touch ID sensor on Apple’s new MacBook Pro hardware.
