“Apple’s macOS Sierra has been on a slower tempo of preview releases than last year’s El Capitan, hinting that the upgrade will launch in October,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.

“On Monday, Apple issued the sixth Sierra preview — and the third this month — to developers. Last year, Apple shipped the sixth beta of El Capitan on Aug. 3. Throughout July and August, each Sierra preview appeared between 10 and 15 days after the corresponding El Capitan beta of 2015,” Keizer reports. “The average lag was 12 days.”

“If Apple follows a schedule similar to last year’s — when it released the El Capitan upgrade on September 30 — Sierra’s slower beta cadence signals a launch the week of October 9-15,” Keizer reports. “That would roughly match the release schedule of Yosemite, El Capitan’s predecessor: Yosemite hit the Mac App Store on Oct. 16, 2014.”
