Ready for macOS Sequoia? Here’s how to install the latest beta version

Beta versions of macOS are like early previews. They let developers test new features before they're released to everyone. By installing the beta, you can experience the new features firsthand. You'll also help Apple by providing feedback on any bugs or issues you find.

Before you start, it's a good idea to back up your Mac. Beta software can be a bit buggy, and you don't want to lose important files. Make sure your Mac is connected to the internet and has enough battery or is plugged in. The installation process can take some time, so be patient.

This guide will walk you through each step clearly. You'll learn how to prepare your Mac, download the beta, and install it smoothly. Let's get started and bring macOS Sequoia developer beta 2 to your Mac!

Sign up for macOS Sequoia developer beta updates

Starting with macOS Sonoma, Apple has made it easier to get beta updates. You no longer need the macOS Beta Access Utility. Instead, you can install beta updates directly from System Settings after signing up.

Here's a simple guide to sign up for macOS Sequoia beta updates:

1. Open any web browser and go to https://developer.apple.com
2. Click on the "Account" button located in the menu bar.

Go to Account

3. Enter the Apple ID you want to use for beta updates.

Enter your Apple ID

4. An Apple Developer Beta Program Agreement will appear. Check the box to agree to terms.

Submit beta agreement

After you complete these steps, a new beta updates section will appear on the Software Update page in System Settings.

You don't need to sign up again if you've already signed up for macOS Sonoma beta updates. You will automatically get macOS Sequoia beta updates.

Before proceeding with the beta update, I highly recommend backing up your Mac. This backup will allow you to revert to macOS Sonoma if any issues arise.
