Tip: Get the iOS, macOS, and tvOS Betas Today

Three weeks ago, Apple announced public beta releases for iOS 12, tvOS 12, and macOS Mojave. They are finally available now.

“Help make the next releases of iOS, macOS, and tvOS our best yet,” Apple’s Beta Software Program website notes. “As a member of the Apple Beta Software Program, you can take part in shaping Apple software by test-driving pre-release versions and letting us know what you think.”

You may recall that, at that time, I wrote a tip about how you could get those beta releases. But that was a bit premature. OK, three weeks premature. But those betas are now finally available to the public. And not just to those on Apple’s paid developer program.

Oddly, they don’t appear to be updated at all. That is, I think the builds that the public is getting today are the same ones that went out to Apple’s private developer program three long weeks ago. That seems odd to me, and I’m surprised Apple didn’t tie these releases to a new round of beta milestones.

Anyway, sorry again about the mix up three weeks ago.
