Apple has released the fourth beta version of macOS 10.12.6 for users participating in the beta testing program.
macOS 10.12.6 is set to focus on bug fixes and security enhancements and not bring any major changes or features. Note that macOS 10.12.6 beta is separate from the concurrent beta testing program for macOS 10.13 High Sierra, the latter of which is set to be the next major system software release and does include more significant features.
Users who are running a prior macOS 10.12.6 beta and who are interested in downloading macOS 10.12.6 beta 4 can do so now from the Mac App Store Updates section.
Apple usually releases beta versions of their entire system software lineup together, but for whatever reason iOS 10.3.3 beta 4 has not yet been released for iPhone and iPad yet, nor has beta 4 of tvOS 10.2.2 or watchOS 3.2.3.
Typically Apple goes through a variety of beta releases before issuing a final version, suggesting that the final build of macOS 10.12.6 and iOS 10.3.3 may be due sometime within the next month.
The next major release of system software will be available to the public in the fall with macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 both arriving at the end of the year.
