Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the second beta and two weeks after releasing the macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 update.

The new macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store with the proper profile installed.

It's not yet clear what improvements the second major update to macOS High Sierra will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't addressed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.

No significant new features were discovered in the first two betas of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, but we'll update this post should notable changes be found in the third beta.

The previous update, 10.13.1, introduced fixes for some serious security flaws and brought new emoji to the macOS operating system.

Also Preview crashes immediately attempting to open pics on HDs or SSDs that are not where Mac OS is installed.

This bug alone is just an unbelievable one. How can you screw up something that only opens pictures mostly from any source? UGH :(

High Sierra works fine, but only if you're "high." :(
Not having that issue (or any other with the last two betas) on any of the Macs I manage. Don't you think it's possible that it's a "you problem" and not an Apple problem?

The major issues I'm having are MAIL glitches but isn't that just a thing Apple doesn't care about?
I think the program has been broken since Snow Leopard!

[doublepost=1510637820][/doublepost]Just did the update. HIGH SIERA is turning into a bunch of monkeys throwing paint at a wall thinking it's art.

How can you make a program like Preview not work? It only does ONE THING!

If it wasn't so sad, it would be laughable. How many bug reports do I have to file.

They get it from the Apple Developer Site. When it says "DEVELOPER" in the title and you aren't one or you don't know what that means, this release is not for you!

Not available ...
...to the unsuspecting public.

It is available to those who can genuinely make good use of it via a certain Apple-certified portal.

For some reason the OTA for High Sierra always takes a while to show up.
