Apple on Wednesday seeded the second beta of their upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.4 operating system to developers for testing. The new beta comes two weeks after the first beta release of macOS Catalina 10.15.4.
The new developer build can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center by participants in the program, or as a software update for Macs that have the proper profile installed from the Developer Center.
The macOS Catalina 10.15.4 beta includes Screen Time Communication Limits and brings a new Head Pointer Accessibility option that allows the cursor to be controlled with head movements using a Mac’s camera.
References to AMD processors have also been discovered in the beta, which could indicate an AMD-powered Mac may be on the way, or it could mean that the reference is only for internal testing at Apple.
So far, we don’t know what other changes or improvements the update carries, but it more than likely includes performance updates, security improvements, and bug fixes for issues that weren’t fixed in Catalina 10.15.3.
If anything new is discovered in the second beta of macOS Catalina 10.15.4 release, we’ll be sure to let you know in this space.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on your daily driver Mac, instead only install betas on a device set aside for testing purposes.
