Today Apple has released macOS 10.12.2 to the public. The new update adds some notable features such as support for Unicode 9 emojis, new wallpapers, and some fixes to Auto Unlock.
Likely due to battery life complaints from the latest MacBook Pro, this version of macOS also removes the ‘battery remaining’ indicator from the system. This update also brings the typical bug fixes and stability improvements.
macOS 10.12.2 is a free update and is available for all systems that support macOS Sierra. Users wanting to update can do so by navigating to the update tab in the Mac App Store.
