Apple’s TestFlight software may soon support third-party beta-testing of macOS apps, The Verifier blog has it. Acquired by Apple back in 2014, TestFlight is an iOS testing platform for over-the-air installation and beta testing of mobile apps for the iPhone and iPad.
TestFlight for Mac should be music to developers’ ears because TestFlight is currently focused on beta testing of third-party iOS apps. Avi David, the editor of tech blog The Verifier, has posited that Apple will bring TestFlight to the Mac during the November 10 event.

Take his claim with a grain of salt because The Verifier is something of a hit-and-miss affair in terms of reporting Apple’s future moves. For example, the publication incorrectly said last year that TestFlight for Mac would be unveiled during WWDC 2019.
The Cupertino tech giant is expected to unveil a trio of Mac notebook models next Tuesday, including two new 13-inch MacBook Pro models. It could also update the MacBook Air with Apple Silicon or even revive the 12-inch MacBook. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the event might serve as a launchpad for a smaller, half-size Mac Pro, in addition to the AirTags item trackers, the rumored new over-ear AirPods Studio headphones and more.
