Apple Releases First macOS Sierra 10.12.5 Beta

After releasing macOS 10.12.4 yesterday to everyone, Apple today seeded developers and public beta testers with the first build of macOS Sierra 10.12.5 for debugging before an initial release. If your Mac is registered to receive preview builds, head over to the “Updates” tab in the App Store and check for updates. There, you’ll find the new build ready to install. Just click the “Update” button next to the macOS Sierra 10.12.5 Beta 1 listing and restart your Mac. The process may take a little while, so be patient and don’t turn off your Mac manually if you don’t have to.

So far, only bug fixes and security improvements have been found within this build of macOS 10.12.5 which makes sense since this is a cumulative update. If you notice something we may have not, forward your sightings to mbedded@icloud.com and @MBEDDEDMaximum on Twitter.
