One day after releasing the first public beta for iOS 12, Apple has introduced the first public beta for macOS Mojave, giving the non-developer community the opportunity to try out the latest Mac software ahead of its fall release.
Among the new features in macOS Mojave includes Dark Mode, Dynamic Desktop, upgraded Finder with features like Gallery View and Side Bar with metadata, and a revamped App Store that follows the design Apple has been using in iOS. Apple also migrated the News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home apps to the Mac for the first time.
If you want to download the beta, it’s a really easy process to do so. Here’s how you do it:
- Go Apple’s public beta website where you’ll be prompted to sign up for public beta testing. To do so, you’ll just have to log in with your Apple ID.
- Once logged in, go to “Enroll Your Devices” in the top right corner.
- Go down to the second step and select “Download the macOS Public Beta Access Utility.”
- After you download it, go back to step three where you can view the macOS public beta in the App Store and you can start downloading the beta to take advantage of all the features macOS Mojave offers.
The entire process is super easy to complete. However, a fair warning if you’re thinking of trying out the beta: Beta software tends to be very buggy, so it is not recommended to download the software on your primary device. If you ignore this warning and want to download the beta regardless, you can do so now.
