macOS Sonoma

The first developer beta of macOS Sonoma 14.4 is out for testing following the release of version 14.3. Developers taking part in the beta test program can pick up the newest build through the Apple Developer Center or by updating Macs already running the beta. Public beta versions are generally made available via the Apple Beta Software Program not long after the developer versions are released. The new beta round takes place after the public release of macOS Sonoma 14.3 on January 22, and the release candidate from January 17. Apple’s new macOS Sonoma 14.4 build is number 23E5180j, and takes over from the release candidate of 14.3, build number 23D56. There are no real details on changes included in the beta after the first build’s initial introduction, but information on updates will start to surface in the coming days. AppleInsider and Apple strongly suggest users don’t install beta operating systems or other beta software on “mission-critical” or primary devices, as there is the small chance of issues that could result in the loss of data. Testers should instead use secondary or non-essential hardware and ensure they have sufficient backups of their critical data at all times.
