Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on macOS 10.12 Sierra. On June 13, 2016, Apple announced macOS 10.12 Sierra on WWWDC 2016. I positively tested it with an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV 7.2.1 software. I succesfully installed OpenPlex using wahlman.j’s workaround on macOS 10.12 Sierra. The new macOS 10.12 Sierra got a bunch of new features like, e.g., Sire on Mac, improved Photos app, Apple Pay on web, auto unlock your Mac with Apple Watch, universal clipboard, improved iCloud Drive with optimised storage on your Mac, renewed Messages app. Find more about macOS 10.12 Sierra
