Apple has released the fourth developer beta of macOS Big Sur 11.3. The new update is seeded two weeks after macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta 3. The build number of the latest Mac operating system is macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta 4 – 20E5210c.
The company has also rolled out iOS 14.5, iPad 14.5, watchOS 7.4, tvOS 14.5, and HomePod 14.5 beta 4 updates. Most of the beta versions are not released new features’ release notes, but iOS 14.5 beta 4 has a new ‘City Charts’ playlists feature on Apple Music. However, the feature is not live yet. And we will have to wait for a few days to learn if the Cupertino tech giant has introduced more new features and improvements across the operating systems.
