MacOS High Sierra, the next generation of Mac software, is now available as a public beta. Yesterday Apple released the second beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 update to public beta testers, two weeks after seeding the 1st Beta and three weeks after releasing macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. Today’s public beta is alike to the second beta provided to developers earlier this week.
The new macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 beta can be downloaded through Apple Developer Center or the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store with the proper profile installed.
People who wants to work in Apple’s beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas where they can sign up and take a part into it. Beta testers who have signed up for Apple’s beta testing program will be able to download the new macOS High Sierra beta through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.
It introduces its support for Messages on iCloud, there is a feature that was present in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 betas but pulled ahead of the release of the updated software. It attends the iCloud feature that allows your older iMessages to be stored in iCloud rather than on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, saving valuable storage space. Older attachments are also stored in iCloud. Messages on iCloud are designed to store your iMessages in iCloud for improved syncing.
Its update is expecting to include bug fixes and improvements to address issues discovered since the release of macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. Because Apple does not provide detailed release notes for macOS High Sierra updates, we may not know exactly what’s included until the new software is provided to the public.
