  • Will support iOS apps on M1 Macs alongside native Mac apps
  • Yellow dot next to app name in dock & Launchpad for beta apps
  • Automatic updates supported via checkbox for testers
  • Send feedback button for direct developer connection, supports also screenshots
  • Crash logs also supported, both in App Store Connect and in Xcode Organizer
  • Filtering by Mac device & version is available for feedback
  • Apple Silicon Mac testing is as easy as clicking "enable" for iOS apps in TestFlight
  • New: Multiple internal groups can be created like external groups (e.g. Dev & QA)
  • "Enable automatic distribution" checkbox to decide if all builds should be available
