Apple continues to polish macOS Sierra and tvOS 10, seeding the sixth beta builds of the new software updates to developers today.

The new betas come a week after Apple dropped the last batch of betas, which brought a number of new bug fixes and performance improvements to the gigantic releases that are set for public launch this fall.

Both tvOS 10 beta 6 and macOS Sierra beta 6 can be downloaded directly from the Apple Developer Center. To install tvOS 10, developers can either connect the device to a Mac over USB or use our handy workaround to do it all with the Siri remote and your iPhone.

Developers running the previous beta build of macOS Sierra can install the update through the Mac App Store. The release notes for macOS Sierra beta 6 don’t mention any major new additions; however, the document does list a slew of bugs and other known issues Apple is working to resolve before the final build.

macOS Sierra beta 5 brought only minor fixes as well. Previously, macOS Sierra beta 4 added more than 100 new emoji and some other minor tweaks.

We’ll let you know if we spot anything new once we get the latest software installed on our machines.
