macOS 10.15.2 Catalina Beta 1 Released To Developers

Apple released the first developer beta of macOS 10.15.2 Catalina today, with the update now available to those who have the developer beta profile installed.

The new beta comes one week after the release of macOS 10.15.1 to the public, which, apart from a few changes to the Photos app and support for AMD’s Navi RDNA eGPU architecture, focused largely on performance and stability improvements.

Release notes for the new build don’t highlight any significant changes either, which would suggest the latest update may also be relatively minor.

Of course, this is only the first beta, with possibly a few more to come before a stable version of the point release is made available to the public. Many things could change in that time, and we’ll be sure to follow along and let you know as and when that happens.

For now, it seems to be an incremental improvement to the overarching Catalina update, which comes packed with separate Music, TV, and Podcasts apps to replace iTunes, a new Find My app, and a new lick of paint for the Photos app, among other additions. It is also the first flavor of macOS to completely drop support for 32-bit apps.

If you have the aforementioned developer beta profile installed from the Apple Developer portal (, you can install the latest beta right now by heading to System Preferences > Software Update.
