Apple Seeds Second macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Beta to Developers
Apple today seeded the second beta of the upcoming macOS Sierra update 10.12.2 to developers, one week after releasing the first 10.12.2 beta and two weeks after the public release of macOS 10.12.1.
macOS Sierra 10.12.2 beta 2 is available for download through the Apple Developer Center and through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store. A public beta will likely be available for public beta testers later this week.
macOS Sierra 10.12.2 includes new emoji introducing Unicode 9 characters like clown face, drooling face, selfie, face palm, fox face, owl, shark, butterfly, avocado, pancakes, croissant, and more, plus many profession emoji available in both male and female genders.
Apple has also updated the artwork on many existing emoji, adding detail and making them look less cartoonish and more realistic.
The update will also focus on bug fixes and performance enhancements to address issues that have popped up since the release of macOS Sierra 10.12.1.
Available since September, macOS Sierra is the latest Mac operating system. It includes Siri support, Apple Pay for the web, Universal Clipboard, Apple Watch auto unlocking, improved iCloud Drive integration, Picture-in-Picture multitasking, and dozens of smaller features that can be found in our macOS Sierra roundup.

That is apple's priorities, priorities, priorities,
MBP update - emoji bar,
Can't wait for iphone hardware change to include more emojis!
And to get a whole relase just for them. They must be sooooooo important.
Consider me unimpressed.
mind you I have not upgraded my main system to Sierra yet.
I'm still waiting for Finder to actually merge folders, if that's what I want, and not delete destination folder's previous contents - sometimes.
I see little use for a "common user" such as myself to install betas these days. Well, I do install them...but it was ages ago that a beta or "preview" actually was exciting to install.
With that being said I'm happy as long as Apple updates don't kill off my hackintosh, "real apples" are too expensive here in Scandinavia :-/
