iOS 10 and macOS Sierra are getting all the attention after their grand unveiling at WWDC, but Apple continues to fine-tune its current software before unleashing the next-gen goodies later this fall.

Apple dropped four new beta updates on developers today, bringing a huge batch of bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements to iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and tvOS.

Developers can grab the fourth beta builds of OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, iOS 9.3.3, watchOS 2.2.2 and tvOS 9.2.2 from Apple’s Developer Center. The OS X beta can be installed via the Mac App Store; iOS 9.3.3 beta 3 can be downloaded as an over-the-air update to iOS devices that have the previous beta build installed.

tvOS 9.2.2’s installation process is a bit more detailed than other Apple betas, as it requires testers to use Apple’s configuration tool and plug the device into a Mac over USB.

Apple hasn’t added any major outward-facing changes in the new betas, instead focusing on squashing bugs and making the software as solid as possible.

We’ll let you know if we see anything new and exciting once we install the new betas on our devices.
