    From their FAQs on public betas:

    Don't expect public betas to be updated as often as DPs. It is very likely public betas would only get 2-3 monthly or even bi-monthly updates while DPs get it every 2-3 weeks.

    If the next DP is two week, we should expect it in the week of August 4.

    For next public beta, I'd suspect the week of August 25th or Sept 22nd.

    That's if there even is a second public beta...

    The last time Apple had a public beta of their whole operating system was way back at the dawn of OS X, a pre-release called Kodiak.

    While developers had many updates, there was only ever one public beta. Oh, and it cost $30 too.

    More about Kodiak

    And the production release of OS X was $129 back then for a single user, as well. If you had bought the beta release, you got a $30 credit towards the final price - bringing the total cost of both beta and prod to the $129 price.

    My how times have changed. :)

    No there wasn't. There were 2. A US version (build 1H39) and an International Version (build 2E14).

    Sometimes a new beta can brake more things that the previous beta to fix some stuff, so, I think for the PB it will take more time for an update after previous testing of a Developer Beta.
