Apple brings second iOS 10.2.1 & macOS 10.12.3 betas to public testers

in iPhone
Following up on Tuesday's developer seeds, Apple on Wednesday released second betas of iOS 10.2.1 and macOS 10.12.3 to the public.

Both releases are available to anyone registered in Apple's Beta Software Program. For people who already have a previous beta installed, the updates are available through the Mac App Store and iOS's over-the-air update mechanism.

In each instance, Apple has been vague on what changes are being made, except to say macOS 10.12.3 makes "stability, compatibility, and security" improvements.

The finished updates are therefore likely to be simple maintenance releases, cleaning up any bugs and performance problems introduced -- or simply not dealt with -- in iOS 10.2 and macOS 10.12.2. Apple's launch window is unknown, but the company will likely have to wait until after Christmas, given that many of its workers will be off for the holidays.

    Hopefully this will fix the functionality between my iPhone SE and Ford Sync in my 2014 Ford Focus which has been ruined by recent iOS updates! I am disgusted by Apple's response to my complaints with suggestions that it's Ford Sunc that requires updating. I suspect it's because Apple is useless with Bluetooth and is purely interested in trying to get their stupid AirPods to work regardless of functionality of any third party hardware.
