Apple has pushed the second beta version of macOS Monterey 12.5 to developers. Apple hasn’t released any release notes yet, so it’s likely there aren’t any obvious new features.
Update 31-05: Apple has released the second public beta for macOS 12.5.
macOS Monterey 12.4 was similarly light on new features, with minor updates to the Podcasts app and a firmware update to the Studio Display. The update also pulled Universal Control out of beta and included over 50 security patches, so it’s an important update to install.
We will update this article as new features roll out and future betas arrive. With WWDC only days away, the beta of macOS 12.5 may contain clues deep in code about Apple’s plans for the event, which will preview macOS 13 and potentially new Macs.
The 12.5 beta will be available to developers first, and the public beta will arrive a day later. To try the beta, you can register for the public beta program on your Mac.
