In addition to the pre-release version of iOS 12, Apple unleashed the public beta download for macOS Mojave on Tuesday. Both are slated for official launch in September 2018, but if you’d like to test Apple’s new features before most others, here’s how.
macOS Mojave comes packed with features that fans have been yearning for for years. These include a dark mode with a dynamic desktop that changes throughout the day, more screenshot capabilities, and a self-organizing desktop.
The upgrade is compatible with MacBooks dating back to early 2015, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models from mid 2012, Mac Minis from late 2012, iMac Pro. It also works with Mac Pro models from late 2013, as well as select mid 2010 to mid 2012 versions.
First, you’ll need to register your computer on Apple’s ‘Beta Software Program’ via an internet browser on your Mac device.
Once the registration has been successful, select the ‘Enroll Your Devices’ tab on the top right. Click on “Download macOS Mojave public beta access utility,” and you’ll receive the file in your computer.
Finally, install the package via your Mac device’s ‘Downloads’ folder.
Fair warning that the current update for macOS 11.4 is still in beta, which means there’s a high chance it contains bugs and issues that Apple hasn’t solved yet. It’s recommended that you download it using a second computer to prevent any data loss; but if it sounds too risky, you might want to wait a couple of months until the upgrade rolls out to the masses.
