macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 beta

Apple has released macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 beta 4 for Mac users enrolled in the beta testing program.


This is the second beta update released this week after beta 3 was issued several days ago, suggesting that development pace has accelerated.

Betas of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 appear to focus mostly on bug fixes and does not seem to introduce any new features or significant changes to macOS High Sierra. It’s possible that some of the issues reported with macOS High Sierra by select groups of users will be addressed in this software update, assuming the trouble relates to bugs in the system software and are not caused by user error or some other conflict.

As usual, the latest update to macOS High Sierra beta can be found via the Software Update mechanism of the Mac App Store for users actively enrolled in the beta testing program.

Typically the developer beta build will be released first, soon followed by the public beta release. Anyone can choose to participate in the public beta testing program, but generally speaking it’s unwise to enroll a primary machine to beta test system software. Additionally, anyone can sign up to become a developer with Apple, though the annual fee of $99 makes it impractical for users who are not actually software developers intending to release software through the various Apple App Stores.

Apple usually goes through several beta builds before releasing a final version of system software to the public. Currently the most recent stable build of macOS remains macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.

    I tried upgrading to High Sierra a month back. For the firs time ever, the system crashed mid way. There was no direction or help on what to do.

    I had to uninstall it and go bak to the previous Sierra and download everything from Time machine. Total process took several hours.

    Are the new versions more reliable?

      I’ve come to learn to wait until OS X 10.x.4 is available. So basically, the 4th version of whatever OS X until I upgrade. There’s no rush as your current OS is not out of date yet. May save you some trouble.
