macOS Monterey 12.1 is available in public beta


Just a day after rolling out the same developer-only edition, Apple chose to bring the latest advanced version of macOS to the general public. All the novelties of this version can be found in detail in our dedicated article, published yesterday.

Among them, in short, we find:

  • SharePlay : content sharing with FaceTime, Apple Podcasts, Apple Music, Apple TV + and Apple Fitness +
  • Xcode : new beta version
  • App Store : fixes
  • SwiftUI : fixes
  • GPU : support for a new graphics card


It is common knowledge that installing a beta version of macOS on your computer poses some security risks but especially stability. It is therefore better to install it only on a machine specially dedicated to this type of test, and not on a computer that you use for studies, work or at home.

How to install a beta?

The tutorial for accessing Apple’s beta test program is available here.
