    Since iOS follows a one or two week cycle between updates, I'm wondering if MacOS High Sierra has this pattern too. I haven't seen any videos on 10.13.5 so I have no idea if there's a schedule. Do they just release randomly? Or is there a schedule?

    Short answer: no.

    There's no public schedule, and typically not even a private one. I say typically because there have been cases where a point release is meant to coincidence with a press event. But aside from that, point releases get additional betas when there is additional stuff to test (for example, when a security hole has recently been discovered, and they want to add a patch to it in that very cycle), and they get their final release whenever Apple feels it's sufficiently ready — i.e., when all blocking bugs are fixed.

    Generally, they release ios and high sierra update at the same time or within a day of each other. Developer first, public beta second, sometimes public is same day, but always at least the next. I am expecting something today, just a gut feeling, no inside information. It's seems they release beta updates every 7-10 days.
