Apple on Thursday seeded the release candidate of macOS Monterey 12.4 to developers. The new beta comes one week after the release of the fourth macOS Monterey 12.4 beta.
The developer build of macOS Monterey 12.4 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 12.4 Monterey release candidate 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
macOS Monterey 12.4 supports new 15.5 Studio Display firmware, which Apple says improves the quality of the webcam on the display. Apple’s release notes say the Studio Display firmware refines camera tuning, offering improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing.
An update for the Podcasts app is also included, with Apple adding a setting that limits the number of episodes stored on a Mac, automatically deleting older episodes.
We don’t yet know what other features may have made the cut in macOS Monterey 12.4, but if we find anything new, we’ll update you in this space.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas or release candidates on their daily driver Mac, instead only installing betas on devices set aside for testing purposes.
