    Hi

    Im having issues getting public 10.12.3 to show up in the app store, Ive enrolled my mac, installed utility and nothing shows, have they pulled or removed it? I have Sierra installed, version 10.12.2. MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, any help is appreciated

    check the app store preferences: is "your computer is set to receive beta software updates" selected? have you rebooted? you can also confirm your enrollment: https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/

    Yup, checked app store preferences and Im set to receive them, tried rebooting, and signing in and out from the store tab. Tried calling Apple and they said it may not be rolled out in my area yet or that it sometimes takes awhile to show? They didn't seem too confident or certain in their answer but I don't think the reps are too familiar with beta program anyways, so kind of sol for now

    you might try another call to apple, maybe the next rep will actually know what they're talking about. where is 'your area'? the beta releases just go out on a single day, and should be available to everyone in the program at that time...

    have you installed any previous betas? and is 'feedback assistant' in your Utilities folder?

    Yeah when I called the rep she asked her senior advisor and thats the info I was given, sigh. Just registered with the beta program this morning, haven't installed any previous betas either, I do have feedback assistant on my dock and in the utilities folder. Really anxious to try 10.12.3 as I'd heard good things and my battery has been draining rather quickly since upgrading to sierra, even with a clean install.

    you're username & password is the same in both places? (the beta program, your applestore login)?

    Beta Update 2 for macOS 10.12.3 has still not appeared in App Store updates for me.
    I have two Macs, located miles apart, both with same AppleID, neither reports beta 2.
    East coast US, Delaware, if that is relevant to anyone else.

    I am not terribly nervous about it, but have not ever had any issue with other public betas appearing, sometimes before I would see a report in macrumors.com :D
    This one - nada...

    anyone tried logging out of the app store, then signing back in?

    Yes, several times, including a restart (even tried a macOS reinstall) before signing back in.
    I have not been offered the beta 2 at any time.
    I had previously updated to the 10.12.3pb1, but with the reinstall of Sierra, I don't have the pb1 now, either.
    Just the plain, old (sad) 10.12.2.
    I thought I knew a lot about this stuff.:confused:
    I'm so depressed. I might try calling 9-1-1 [not]:rolleyes:

    odd, wish i could help. i know 2 other people running the betas (both in nyc), and we're all good. someone at apple must know what to do about this. good luck peeps!

    Good luck getting support for issues installing beta software from Apple support, since they don't support beta software at all.

    Direct links are available in apple's developer forums for the beta if you need them - and provided you follow the instructions there this facilitates standalone installation - without using the mac app store.

    they don't officially support the betas, but i've gotten help (on the phone) with a beta issue (in relation to logic X), so... possible to get support...

    Pretty much at the discretion of the advisor, though.

    true, but my point is... worth trying (perhaps a few times if need be)...

    Thank you so much, it worked! Found your postings on apple beta forums, did the El Capitan partition and it worked like a charm. I'm forever indebted! ;)
