    Or will I have to re-download Sierra through the app store?

    To update 16A320 or 16A322 to 16A323 you have to re-download and run the full installer, which I am about to do on my 13" rMBP. Apple has chosen not to release delta updates and there probably won't be one until 10.12.1.

    It's a bit frustrating that at least they don't say what changed from 32x to 323 because it can be something very minor.

    I even did a full clean reinstall of sierra 320 and now i don't know if i should delete all and reinstall again :|

    I downloaded and installed the GM version which has a version number 16A323 from Mac App Store last week. So I wonder is the final version exactly the same as this version?

    I was running on an old GM (16A320) and hadn't realised. I just upgrade installed up to 16A323 general release no problem.

    same situation. here's my question: all i'm seeing in purchased is 'sierra public beta'... but am assuming that that download would be the final version now. was that your experience?

    If you're on 16A323, you're already on the release version, and don't have to do anything. Enjoy Sierra.

    If you're on anything earlier, you have to download Sierra from the App Store and run the installation again. This will get you to 16A323.

    Don't look in "Purchased". Sierra should be the first thing under 'Our Favorite Mac Apps" at the moment in the "Featured" tab, and should show up in search. Delete any installer you already have, and download that one. Have fun!

    Yea, Apple removed the Developer Beta, Public Beta and GM downloads links/apps in App Store. So anyone will have to download the public release from the App Store.
