Apple releases macOS 10.12.2 Sierra to the public

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 10.2, tvOS 10.1, and watchOS 3.1.1 to the public, introducing the new TV app, support for Unicode 9 emojis, and more. The company held its next macOS Sierra update - version 10.12.2 - back by a day, and it's available now.

The main feature of macOS 10.12.2 is support for Unicode 9 emojis. That's right, you'll now be able to express your love of bacon, avocados, and of course, sharks, without the complications that come from using actual words. In fact, there are 72 new emoji characters in total.

There are also a few more minor features (after all, as the version number indicates, it is a minor update). The indicator that reports how much time is left until the battery is drained has been removed. This is simply due to it being inaccurate, and you'll still be able to view the battery percentage.

To update to the latest version of macOS, head over to the Mac App Store and click on the Updates tab. If you're hoping for a new beta, such as a 10.12.3, we might not see one until January, due to the holiday season.
