MacOS Sonoma beta 14.1 update is available to download and install now

Apple has issued the first beta version of MacOS Sonoma 14.1 beta to users enrolled in the beta testing program for Apple system software.

The beta update arrives just a day after the final release and availability of MacOS Sonoma 14.0 became available to download and install for all Mac users.

Separately, Apple has released iOS 17.1 beta 1, ipadOS 17.1 beta 1, watchOS 10.1 beta 1, and tvOS 17.1 beta 1 for beta testers as well.

  1. Go to the  Apple menu
  2. Select “System Settings”
  3. Go to “General”
  4. Go to “Software Update”
  5. Click on “Beta Updates” and select “OFF” to toggle off receiving beta updates of MacOS Sonoma

Apple usually goes through several beta versions of system software before issuing a final version to the general public, suggesting that MacOS Sonoma 14.1 is at least a month or two away from public release.

The latest available stable versions of macOS system software are currently MacOS Sonoma 14.0, macOS Ventura 13.6, and macOS Monterey 12.7.
