Apple Seeds macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 Beta 1 to Developers


macOS High Sierra title headline

Apple recently launched macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 to the public, but the company is moving ahead with a new beta of an impending software update.

Apple today officially seeded the first developer beta of macOS High Sierra 10.13.3. With it, Apple is giving access to the next update to the desktop operating system to the developers out there in the wild, letting them prepare for the new software ahead of its public launch at some point in the future.

To update, registered developers need to head into the Mac App Store on their registered Mac hardware and click on the Updates tab. The new software will be waiting there. The first developer beta can also be downloaded and installed directly from the Apple Developer Center.

The new software has just landed so there is no word just yet on what it might add that could be forward-facing for the end user. At the time of publication it’s expected that the first developer beta will simply focus on fixing any lingering issues behind the scenes, as well as improving overall performance.

As it stands right now, Apple will also likely seed a corresponding public beta of the same desktop beta, which would let those within the public beta ring test out the pre-release software ahead of the public launch. There is no word on when Apple might release this new software out of beta, but it will likely not land until early 2018.

Are you someone who tries out beta software? Will you be testing out macOS High Sierra 10.13.3?
