Apple on Thursday seeded the Release Candidate of macOS Monterey 12.2 to developers and public beta testers for testing. The first RC comes one week the second beta and over a month after the release of macOS Monterey 12.1.
Apple has also released a macOS 11.6.3 release candidate version for Big Sur users.
The developer build of macOS Monterey 12.2 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 new macOS 12.2 Monterey public beta through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper profile.
No new features were found in the first beta. We’ll update this article should anything new come up in this RC.
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
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver Mac, instead only installing betas on devices set aside for testing purposes.
