Intro to Feedback Assistant on Mac
Apple collects feedback from customers that are using prerelease software to improve the overall quality of our products. With your help, many different environments can be tested.
Each time you open Feedback Assistant, your computer is scanned for changes to your system’s attributes. System attributes—for example, the computer model, network settings, and apps you use—help Apple understand your test environment. When new or updated attributes are detected, they’re automatically submitted to your beta or seed program profile.
To learn more about providing feedback, go to the Apple Bug Reporting website.
