One week after the last batch, registered members of Apple's developer program can now access the fourth pre-release beta builds of operating systems for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch.




The updates are "sub-point" releases, so it remains unlikely that major new features are coming to the updates. Apple usually keeps small version increments limited to bug fixes and small tweaks, with the most likely addition to the new betas being fixes for the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" vulnerabilities.

The release notes remain nearly empty, and contain no testing notes.

The new versions are all available to download through Apple's developer portal. Public beta builds should be forthcoming as well.

On Monday, Apple released iOS 11.2.2 and a supplementary macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 security patch for the aforementioned "Meltdown" and "Spectre" issues.

    I’d run Geekbench twice before the patches and now once after: no significant difference for cpu or compute.

    Your post makes no sense:

    I'd run - 'I would' or 'I had' ?

    no significant difference of cpu or compute - so you did run Geek before and afterwards?

    If you need Geekbench to see any difference, it's not significant, if it exists at all. I didn't expect to see any seat-of-the-pants difference in my 5s or MacBook, and I didn't.
