After the first release candidate (RC) beta version of macOS 12.5 released on July 12, Apple is back with the second and perhaps the last, as often in this kind of case. The number of this version is 21G72 and it is strongly recommended to install it if you have already downloaded the previous one, because the publisher may have taken advantage of it to correct a critical security flaw.
But a priori, no additional functionality major is in the game, which is not uncommon for Apple software anyway. Especially since macOS Ventura will soon take over, this time with dozens of additional options, the first tests of which are already very satisfactory.
A few minor additions
The apple brand, however, specifies that with Monterey 12.5 , the Apple TV app now allows you to resume playback, pause, rewind, or speed up a live match that has already started. A bug on the side of the proprietary Safari browser has also been corrected: it happened that some tabs returned to the previously opened page. Finally, another technical problem this time with the Books platform which no longer opened has also been resolved.
Compatibility and Availability
To test macOS Monterey 12.5 (RC 2), you will need an iMac released in 2015 or later, an iMac Pro, a Mac mini from late 2014 or newer, or one of the last two Macs Pro when it comes to office machines. For laptops, three possibilities: an early 2015 MacBook Pro or newer, an early 2016 MacBook or newer, or an early 2015 MacBook Air or newer.
Although Apple offers this beta to all its customers, it is not recommended to try it on your everyday hardware, let alone if it is your professional work environment. In effect, incidents can always occur with a beta. If you are an app creator, however, installing macOS 12.5 RC 2 can be useful in order to verify that your content is compatible with the latest changes implemented by Apple. But it is better to try the maneuver, there too, on a dedicated Mac.
