Apple today seeded the second beta of macOS Big Sur 11.2 to developers and public beta testers. The new beta comes a month after the first beta of the software.
The new developer build can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center and once the correct profile is installed, succeeding betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.
Registered Public Beta Testers can download and install the macOS Big Sur beta through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper profile.
Mac users who want to be a part of Apple’s beta testing program can sign up to participate on the Apple Beta Software Program website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS betas.
There’s no word yet on what’s new or fixed in macOS Big Sur 11.2 and nothing new was found in the first beta, but it likely includes the usual bug, fixes, performance improvements, security updates, and such that weren’t addressed in version 11.1 of macOS Big Sur.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver Mac, instead only install betas on a Mac set aside for testing purposes.
