    Correct. This is why Beta 7 was released when it was.

    I think its pretty obvious. watchOS and tvOS stopped at beta 6 because they are not effected by these security holes. iOS was updated to beta 7 and then so was macOS. So I would assume macOS was effected as well.

    Also the fact beta 7 was on a Friday and only 4 days after beta 6. Beta 7 no doubt has the fix.

    That makes sense to me, but I feel like they should of stated that.

    Why would they release a security update on a beta software before a world wide held public software? That's seems odd to me

    Because there wasn't a 9.3.5 beta to test out the fix. Doing it with iOS 10 beta 7 allowed them to still test it before pushing it out 6 days later to the public.

    If anything it seems like a safer way to go as they get to test it out for a bit more before going public.

    On the other hand, there's a new iOS 10 beta that was just released today...

    According to some posts on Reddit, the security fixes were included in beta 7.
