    When does this usually trickle down into Public Beta 2?

    I noticed the news article for "Beta 3" got removed. The downloads page on the Dev Center was updated to reflect Beta 3 for other systems just not macOS. I have a feeling it was just MR trying to get their article out there first without any real data to back it up.

    Same issue happened to me, went to my account and re downloaded the whole OS and am now on beta 3. Really weird stuff.

    So you did a clean install to get beta 3 to appear in the App Store?

    Ah I see, thanks for the input. Guess I'll be waiting for this to show up in the App Store since I'm not seeing it yet.

    "macOS 10.12 Developer Preview" was gone in my purchases since a while. It's back now and called "macOS Sierra Developer Beta".

    So that one is a full installer of Developer Beta 2 now and has the same build number as Public Beta 1?

    Edit: Just saw the post above mine. So it's a newer build than both but still beta 2 I think.

    They might just have renamed it and gave it a different build number because of that.

    I have an updated beta 2 installed thats 16A239m. I downloaded beta 2 again mid last week and this is what I was given.
