Apple’s been busy building and seeding batches of betas for bug fixes and performance enhancements in recent months. Now, Apple has released the sixth beta builds of the latest software updates for macOS Sierra and tvOS 10.

The betas apparently fix a range of bugs and glitches and don’t address anything too major. In fact, the macOS Sierra 6 beta comes just one week after the fifth beta was released, as Apple continues to tinker with the OS leading up to the final build.

macOS Sierra was first unveiled at the 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference and features a slew of exciting upgrades to the newest Mac operating system. In a sentence, it brings Siri to Mac. This means you can finish watching movies on your Mac while asking Siri to send a message to your friend letting her know you’re on your way. Siri on Mac can also help locate files, play music, organize your schedule, answer trivia questions as well many of the tasks it already performs on iOS.

macOS Sierra also further syncs up your iPhone and Apple Watch, letting you unlock your phone through your watch, and features ‘Universal Clipboard’ which allows you to copy text from one device and paste it onto another.

tvOS for Apple TV on the other hand features improvements to Siri, revamps Apple Music, simpler sign-ins, and even supports smart home tie-ins that enable you to control your lights and thermostat from your TV.

Both betas can be downloaded by developers and public beta testers through the Apple Developer Center. If you already have the previous beta build of the macOS Sierra, you can download the latest update from the Mac App Store using the Software Update option.

macOS Sierra is slated to be released in the fall.
