Apple seeds second macOS 12 Monterey beta to developers

Last week, Apple seeded the latest developer betas for its other popular platforms. But it left macOS 12 Monterey out of the picture. The company is changing that today, though.

On Monday, Apple seeded the second beta of macOS 12 Monterey to developers. As is par for the course, this is pre-release software that’s meant for development purposes only. It shouldn’t be installed on a daily driver. It’s possible that the software is still a little rough around the edges, and, as a result, may not be usable for everyday use.

You can find what’s new below. It’s possible Apple may add additional features to the mix with this beta. If that is the case, we will update this post accordingly.

Apple is planning to seed public betas of supported software beginning in July.
