    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the second beta and two weeks after releasing the macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 update.

    The new macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store with the proper profile installed.

    It's not yet clear what improvements the second major update to macOS High Sierra will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't addressed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.

    No significant new features were discovered in the first two betas of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, but we'll update this post should notable changes be found in the third beta.

    The previous update, 10.13.1, introduced fixes for some serious security flaws and brought new emoji to the macOS operating system.

    ...to the unsuspecting public.

    It is available to those who can genuinely make good use of it via a certain Apple-certified portal.

    For some reason the OTA for High Sierra always takes a while to show up.

    I wonder where MACrumors gets their information from. Sometimes just a rumor and not real?

    They get it from the Apple Developer Site. When it says "DEVELOPER" in the title and you aren't one or you don't know what that means, this release is not for you!

    It is real. But only available as a combo so far.

    Build number is 17C76a.

    It's on the Apple Developer Site. The OTA will most likely be available later on today though, so it may not be worth the trouble.

    I don't think this combo beta will show up on any system other than 10.13.

    If you are on 10.13.1 or another beta of 10.13.2 then usually only the delta will show up. But the delta doesn't yet exist for beta 3.

    I think that is why many people are not seeing it.

    So to get the combo for this beta, you can use a bootable usb of 10.13 to downgrade to that, install the beta configuration utility AND THEN the combo beta will show up in the mac app store.

    Might be easier just to wait for the delta - assuming apple make one.

    You can manually get the combo updater from the swcatalog, but really, you should just wait for the delta updater.

    Yes indeed. They have now made a delta.

    The VPN-Bug with Cisco AnyConnect is fixed:

    This is an OS defect in macOS 10.13.2 beta. Apple is tracking this under Radar # 35186937. They are actively working on a fix for this issue for an upcoming beta seed.

    Very curious that the combo is smaller than the delta. Usually it is the other way around.

    Any predictions on when 10.13.2 will go final? Does Apple use a time-based release schedule or a quality-based release schedule?

    The annual major releases are time-based. Major hardware releases can cause a tome-based release, too, though with macOS, the Mac in question more typically just gets a special in-between build. External circumstances such as a major security flaw can expedite a release as well.

    Other than that, not time-based. 10.13.2 is unlikely to be tied to any event. It’ll be out when they deem it ready.

    I haven't noticed any issues with Little Snitch.
