Apple seeded two new beta builds to developers today, bringing a host of bug fixes and improvements to iOS 10.2.1 and macOS 10.12.3.

The new builds come just three days after Apple dropped its first batch of betas for 2017. Registered developers can now download iOS 10.2.1 beta 4 and macOS 10.12.3 beta 4 from Apple’s developer portal to take advantage of all the new features.

What’s inside?

The release notes for the new builds don’t mention any major changes or feature additions. Past beta builds of iOS 10.2.1 and macOS 10.12.3 mostly focused on under-the-hood changes rather than UI changes.

Apple’s last updates, iOS 10.2 and macOS 10.12.2 both added some big features to Macs and iOS devices. Over 100 new emoji were added, improvements to the Message app, new wallpapers for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and a new TV app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

We’ll let you know if we find anything notable in the updates once they’re installed.
