The march towards a public release of macOS 12 Monterey continues. And, of course, the wide release of the other major software updates. And to get there, we must stay on the beta seed train.
Today, Apple has seeded the sixth beta of macOS 12 Monterey to developers. While this is obviously late in the beta process, it’s still worth saying that downloading and installing the prerelease software still shouldn’t be done on your primary computer. It’s possible the software is still a little rough around the edges as Apple continues to tweak the formula ahead of a public launch later this year. What’s more, this is the developer beta, so it’s meant for registered developers.
Apple will likely release the corresponding public beta at some point in the near future.

At the time of publication, it remains unknown what is new in this latest beta. It’s possible that this new version of the prerelease software doesn’t add any major new additions. However, if there are any new discoveries made we will update this post accordingly.
