Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.5 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new update coming two weeks after the release of the third macOS Monterey 12.5 beta.

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, and nothing new was found in the first three betas. It's likely this update focuses on bug fixes and other minor improvements to the operating system. This update allows M2 Mac users to download the macOS Monterey 12.5 beta.

macOS Monterey 12.5 could be one of the final updates to macOS Monterey as Apple is now shifting its focus to macOS Ventura, the next-generation Mac operating system coming this fall.

Apple also recently appears to have made Safari 16 available for developers running macOS Monterey and macOS Big Sur, as well as AppleSeed members. Developers can download the browser from Apple's developer website, while AppleSeed members will receive an invitation to download it.

This is good news for 12.5 beta testers.

Was hoping to see a new beta of iOS 15.6 this week. I guess we're still on a two-week cycle for those betas.

3rd beta came out on 14th of June. 24th of June for beta 4.
That's 10 days between both of them - much more like one week, or one and a half at the most.
For sure not even near "two weeks", that information is quite misleading here.

There should be a beta 5 and RC with this wrapped up mid July, if it repeats last year.

Can anyone and yes you Craig F. explain why, when you try to customise the toolbar in a folder that flexible spaces still fail to work ?? didn't work in Big Sur and not in Monterey, really annoying after I have been using that feature since Steve Jobs was a baby :) PLEASE FIX IT
