These have been reported to Apple, and may more heavily affect Beamer users than others. Updating is not recommended until the problem is fixed. The bugs cause these programs to hang.

I can’t confirm this. I updated to 10.12.4 immediately and didn’t experience any problems with neither TeXShop or Skim which I both use daily (the only PDF-related problems I have, is that copy/paste does not handle umlauts and ligatures properly, but this has been a long-standing issue).
