Developers got an exciting new batch of iOS 10 and macOS betas yesterday, but Apple is still working on new updates for iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan.

Apple seeded the fifth betas of iOS 9.3.3 and OS X 10.11.6 to developers and public testers this morning, along with a new build of tvOS 9.2.2 just for devs.

Developers and public beta testers can now get their hands on the third beta build of iOS 9.3.3 after Apple seeded the update this morning.

The new iOS 9.3.3 beta comes two weeks after Apple released the second beta. Apple has also released two new betas for tvOS 9.3.3 and OS X 10.11.6.

Installing the latest tvOS betas on Apple TV is usually a pain in the ass, even when you’re not using shady channels to get developer access.

Getting the betas often requires unplugging it from your TV and connecting it via USB to a Mac, but with tvOS 10 there’s finally a way to install using an iPhone.

Apple has seeded a new iOS beta to developers today just a week after the company dropped iOS 9.3.2 on the public. The new update likely contains a number of under the hood improvements and bug fixes, but Apple may surprise us with a few other tweaks.

Apple has seeded a new beta build of OS X El Capitan to developers this morning in the form of OS X 10.11.4 beta 4.

The new beta build can be downloaded directly from Apple’s Developer Member Center, or via the Software Update option in the Mac App Store if your Mac is already rolling on the last El Capitan beta.
