Apple Seeds macOS High Sierra Beta 1 to Public Testers

macOS High Sierra

Apple has already made it to the second developer beta of macOS High Sierra, and now the company has released the public beta.

We knew the public beta was coming, as Apple promised it back at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month. And sure enough, the first public beta of macOS High Sierra has finally arrived. This first public beta will be the same software as the second developer beta, so that means the public testers are all caught up.

For those who have signed up for the Apple Public Beta Program, the macOS High Sierra public beta is available through the Updates tab in the Mac App Store. If you have not signed up yet, but want to, you can head through this link to do so.

macOS High Sierra is a major update for the desktop operating system, bringing new features to the Photos app, and adding a new Apple File System, but the majority of the new software is also meant to refine and improve the overall software. Apple is also introducing High Efficiency Video Encoding (HVEC), and Siri is getting a more natural voice as well. Mail storage is getting optimized, and the software will be seeing a whole host of new refinements behind-the-scenes.

Do you plan on downloading and installing the public beta for macOS High Sierra, or are you going to wait for the public launch later this year?
