macOS Big Sur beta

Apple has released a second release candidate for macOS Big Sur 11.2 to those who are participating in the public beta and developer beta testing programs.

macOS Big Sur 11.2 RC 2 arrives on its own, after the first release candidate was made available alongside RC builds for iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 last week.

For Mac users who are enrolled in the public beta testing or developer beta testing programs, macOS Big Sur 11.2 RC 2 is available to download now through the Software Update system preference panel.

No major new features are expected in macOS Big Sur 11.2, as the update seems focused on bug fixes and refinements to the Big Sur operating system.

Release notes accompanying the macOS Big Sur 11.2 Release Candidate 2 download are as follows:

‌macOS Big Sur‌ 11.2 improves Bluetooth reliability and fixes the following issues:
– External displays may show a black screen when connected to a Mac mini (M1, 2020) using an HDMI to DVI converter
– Edits to Apple ProRAW photos in the Photos app may not save
– iCloud Drive could turn off after disabling the ‌iCloud Drive‌ Desktop & Documents Folders option
– System Preferences may not unlock when entering your administrator password
– Globe key may not display the Emoji & Symbols pane when pressed

Release candidate builds typically a final version of that system software release will be available soon to the general public. It’s assumed that macOS 11.2 will arrive alongside iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 in the near future.

As of now, iOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.3 and macOS Big Sur 11.1 remain the most recent builds of final system software available.
