Apple Seeds Third macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Beta to Developers

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?

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!

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.

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

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.

How about Apple fixing the issue that High Sierra cannot be installed onto a RAID system - either SSD or Mechanical!! Some of us are still using the (vastly superior) original Mac Pro!

I don't think this combo beta will show up on any system other than 10.13.

If you are on 10.13.1 or another beta of 10.13.2 then usually only the delta will show up. But the delta doesn't yet exist for beta 3.

I think that is why many people are not seeing it.

So to get the combo for this beta, you can use a bootable usb of 10.13 to downgrade to that, install the beta configuration utility AND THEN the combo beta will show up in the mac app store.

Might be easier just to wait for the delta - assuming apple make one.

I wonder where MACrumors gets their information from. Sometimes just a rumor and not real?


It is real. But only available as a combo so far.

Build number is 17C76a.
