by removeos_admin

After releasing the first public beta version of iOS and iPadOS 13.4, Apple also released the first public beta update for macOS Catalina 10.15.4. Early users who have registered for the Apple Beta test project can install it through the Software Update page in System Preferences after getting the configuration files properly.


This update mainly introduced the Screen Time Communication Limits, which has been brought to the iPhone with the iOS 13.3 update. This feature allows parents to limit the their children’s contacts, as well as when to use the social apps.

A minor accident occurred on Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro – some users noticed sonic booms in the new product, and Apple has confirmed the problem and promised that it would be fixed through a software update.


Apple has pushed a series of software updates yesterday, including those for iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS and so on. In the macOS Catalina 10.15.2 update, Apple seems to have fixed the sonic boom on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The MacRumors forum reported that some users who have installed macOS Catalina 10.15.2 update said that the issue of sonic boom had  been eliminated in the new version of the system. After installing the update and trying to play via VLC, Safari, Chrome, Netflix, YouTube, Premiere Pro, and Amazon Prime Video, they found no sonic boom. 

How to quickly finish updating macOS?

by removeos_admin

Isn’t it boring when updating macOS, all you can do is waiting and watching the progress bar? Lately a user posted on Reddit to share a Terminal command that can speed up macOS update.


The user said it usually takes half an hour to update macOS through the App Store. macOS now has a built-in utility that quickens the update, and users can use their devices while updating the system.

The user also said it only took him 10 minutes to finish updating to the latest version of macOS 12.6. The device needs to restart during the update, so you won’t be able to use your device for about 2 minutes.  The user suggested using the following commands for update:

softwareupdate -l 

softwareupdate -i -a

The first one is to check for updates, the second is to install the update. During the process you’ll be prompted to restart the device.

The post soon received replies – another user discovered a method with higher efficiency. This user said executing “sudo softwareupdate -ia;sudo reboot” command will automatically do the tasks one by one, so that during the update you can put the device aside and do other things.

Another method is to execute “sudo sh -c “softwareupdate -ia && sudo reboot” command. The device will restart after the first task is done, and you’ll be prompted if the device fails to restart.

The last but the better way is to execute “sudu sh -c “softwareupdate -ia && reboot” command.

Well, no matter which way you choose to update the device, backup is always suggested.

iOS 10.3.2 beta 3 released to continue fixing bugs

by removeos_admin

Days ago Apple has rolled out macOS 10.12.5 beta 3, watchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1 for developers. This update is still mainly for fixing bugs and improving device stability & security.


iOS 10.3.2 beta 3 doesn’t have anything new either but bug fixes and performance improvements mainly.

Without any important new features added, MacOS 10.12.5 beta 3 fixed some issues found in macOS 10.12.4, which was launched on March 27. Surely macOS 10.12.5 will continue improving stability, compatibility and security of Mac devices.

Apple last month has brought us macOS 10.12.4, but quite a number of users said it negatively effected the sound quality of USB headset, causing staccato, distortion, etc. Some said the newly installed macOS 10.12.4 can’t fix the problem, only restoring to macOS 10.12.3 or lower does. Hopefully this version can solve that.

In macOS 10.12.4 Apple for the first time adopted Night Shift, meanwhile PDFKit API has been improved, and brand new data statistics have been added for iCloud.
