Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Monterey 12.5 to Developers
Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.5 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new update coming two days after the release of macOS Monterey 12.4.
Registered developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center and after the appropriate profile is installed, betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.
There's no word yet on what new features or changes might be included in macOS Monterey 12.5, but if we find anything new after installing the software, we'll update this article.

Some additional history on the past few versions and their release dates:
10.14.5 (May 2019)
10.14.6 (July 2019)
10.15.5 (May 2020)
10.15.6 (July 2020)
10.15.7 (September 2020)
11.4 (May 2021)
11.5 (July 2021)
11.6 (September 2021)
If history is anything to go by, perhaps we'll get 12.5 in July, and maybe even 12.6 in September. I don't know why a lot of people are acting like Monterey development is done now...there's six more months to go until macOS 13 is actually released.
