    I had previously mentioned that with the new MacBook Pro 15" models due to come out later this month, Apple would need to release a new version of OS 10.12, Sierra. Well, it looks like this is actually happening now, as there is a beta version of OS 10.12.1 being tested. Here is the link that mentions it:


    Apple also needs to correct some "bugs/issues" with the initial release of OS 10.12, as is normal with such events. This link describes such issues:


    But, there is no guarantee that Apple will correct all such issues with this newer version.

    For myself, it's amazing how this is so, so similar to what happened last year when El Capitan was released late last September. In actuality, a beta version of OS 10.11.1 first appeared in early August 2015. OS 10.11 was released (on time) near the end of September 2015, and OS 10.11.1 was due to be released near the end of October 2015. Also, just like last year, two critical applications I use, Onyx and TechTool Pro, were not updated for compatibility with the new OS until early October. So far, only TechTool Pro still needs an upgrade for Sierra compatibility. (Onyx was/is actually released as a brand new version which is specifically compatible with the OS. Such a new version cannot be used with an older version of the Mac OS).

    So, just like last year, I will wait until OS 10.12.1 is released before I upgrade from El Capitan, OS 10.11.6, to Sierra, OS 10.12.1.
