A fresh new batch of beta updates have just been pushed out to developers today by Apple, bringing a host of bug fixes and other improvements to all of Apple’s platforms.

Registered developers can download the new beta builds for iOS 10.3.3, macOS 10.12.6, watchOS 3.2.3 and tvOS 10.2.2 directly from Apple’s developer center. You can also install the iOS and macOS betas directly to your iPhone, iPad or Mac if you have the previous builds installed.

This is the second release for all four new beta builds. The last set of updates didn’t contain any major new additions, other than some new wallpapers for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which could hint that Apple plans to release a new iPad Pro next week at WWDC.

The new beta builds could be the last set of updates for iOS 10, macOS 10.12, watchOS 3 and tvOS 10. Apple is expected to unveil iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11 at it’s Worldwide Developer Conference next week in San Jose.

Details on the new software coming out at WWDC have been scare, but we’ve put together wish lists of the changes we want to see Apple bring to the iOS 11 and macOS next week. New hardware could also make an appearance at the event in the form of new MacBook Pros and a 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Apple’s WWDC keynote is set to kick off at 10AM PT in San Jose. As usual, Cult of Mac will be here to liveblog the entire event with play-by-play breakdowns on all the new goodies.
