Apple has just released the first beta versions of new software updates for each of its platforms: iOS, OS X, tvOS, and watchOS. iPhone and iPad get iOS 9.3 beta 1, the Mac gets El Capitan 10.11.4 beta 1, Apple TV can test tvOS 9.2 beta 1, and Apple Watch users can try watchOS 2.2 beta. Interestingly, iOS 9.2.1 and OS X 10.11.3 are both still in beta so we’re seeing multiple betas running at the same time.
And alongside the latest beta release of tvOS, Apple is giving developers the ability to view stats from their Apple TV apps via App Analytics in iTunes Connect. “ In addition to seeing data on product page views, downloads, and engagement, you can also see how many iOS users acquired with your marketing campaigns opened the same app on Apple TV.”
We’ll check out each new release and update with any significant changes. Each new version is available through the Developer Center. Be sure to shout our way if you discover anything new and experience any issues with the pre-release software.
