Apple views this as beta 6 which is also the final release candidate build that public will receive next week. The build number is the same as beta 5- 17E5255a .

That is disappointing that the build number is the same as beta 5, which gave me some seriously bad battery life due to over heating.

You never know: the battery hit may have been caused by logging. Since this is a RC build, I suspect the logging and other diagnostics will be turned off. Bottom line: I think you can probably expect better battery life. At least fingers crossed!

So how do you connect a Magic Mouse for example? I’d expect this all to be moved outside of Accessibility into its own section?

Scrolling doesn’t work with the Magic Mouse 1st gen.. it works flawlessly with my Logitech MX Master though. Any idea?

Not sure if the download is slow as a drag cause everyone is downloading the update or because of the massive influx of home office / quarantine situation in my country.
yep.here also so slowwww maybe overload?
