Alongside issuing an update to iOS 11 Developer Beta – bumping the software to Beta 2, Apple has this week also seeded new builds of watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and macOS 10.13 to ADC members.
… and as previously announced during this year’s opening keynote at WWDC, watchOS 4 (Beta 2) now features a whole horde of characters from Disney Pixar’s award-winning Toy Story movie franchise, including; Jessie, Bullseye, Buzz, Woody, Hamm, Rex, and more …
The characters center around the all-new ‘Toy Story’ watch face – which has two programmable complications located top-right and bottom center, in addition to a random ‘Toy Box’ option that will see watchOS choose which of the preset Toy Story characters is displayed upon the user raising their wrist.
Despite the improvements, though, it appears Apple still has a long way to go before the software can be considered anywhere near final:
Still bad battery life it seems. Especially on watchOS. Contacts aren’t displaying correctly on watch for texts/iMessages.

Just as with the latest build of tvOS, details on the exact changes in this week’s seeded build of macOS High Sierra are unknown – although the company does state the software has its focus on improving the performance and stability of your Mac.
While that may be the case, it’s worth nothing that -as with any beta software- installing available builds of macOS High Sierra on a device which is not dedicated to development, is rarely a good idea.
This is because beta software is largely considered ‘non-final’, and therefore is likely to include bugs which may introduce various issues into your everyday workflow.
