Yesterday, Apple released macOS Sierra 10.12.3 to the public, and now a brand new beta for another upcoming version of the platform is available.

Apple has seeded the first developer beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.4 to developers. It’s still early in the seed, so any new discoveries are still trickling in. It’s possible that Apple has included a variety of new features, and we’ll update this post accordingly when the new features are discovered.

One of the primary new additions is the arrival of Night Shift, which has been available in iOS for a bit of time now. With the feature, Mac owners will be able to set a schedule so that their display will automatically shift hues, making it easier to look at the display at night.

What’s New in macOS 10.12.4 Beta:

  • Night Shift for Macs
  • Siri can now tell users more about the Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council. Siri can read out/show scores, rosters, and more.
  • Dictation now supports Shanghainese
  • Apps that support the PDFKit API will now display PDFs much better
