    Does anyone know approximately when the first public beta of High Sierra will be available? I heard sometime in June.

    Thanks

    Probably next week, when then Developer beta 2 will likely be out.

    I personally won't be installing it anything except for maybe an external drive for fun.

    Well, at WWDC, Tim Cook said 'end of June,' so it could be next week or the week after.

    June ends next Friday, so next week if it really is in June.

    Sorry, I've been out of work for 5 months and my brain is frazzled.

    I'm so excited to hear what you guys think of the beta.
    It's weird for me since this will be the first beta I miss out on - can't risk anything on this machine.

    I'm not asking for the exact date, rather a general one.

    Be prepared for a rough ride.

    The Developer Preview 1 of High Sierra crashes during install on my Late 2009 21.5" iMac. Indications are it is Firmware related. After trying numerous times on a separate partition the result is the same both with APFS and HFC+

    Hopefully this issue will be resolved when the Public Beta is released.

    I installed it on my 2014 mac mini the day it seeded, install took a while and was very slow to login at first. However after first reboot it has been running stable without restart. I have also installed it on my 2010 mac mini and it is running boinc manager for seti@home and einstein@home and has yet to crash in the last week it has been running.

    Fairly happy so far, little buggy here and there but not nearly as bad as I had expected.

    Now that Apple has released Developer Beta 2, the Public Beta is probably coming next week after a week of testing (had WindowServer crash twice for me on DP1, this has been one of the worst recent first betas in terms of stability because of the re-code for Metal, APFS).

    This would also fit the "end of June" time frame.

    I haven't had a single crash. I did clean install it though rather than do an upgrade.

    Really? Just now beta 2 froze up for me and it looks like I'll have to hard reboot. I am running it on different hardware from yours, though (Mid 2012 15" Retina MacBook Pro with both integrated and dedicated GPUs, the Late 2013 13" only has integrated which makes things a bit simpler).

    So as we know apple...
    Possibility 1:
    Now we HOPE we'll see a Public Beta today, or this wek.
    But since Developer Beta 2 is laggy, I think it will be released in the first week of July.
    I'm not sure.

    Possibility 2.

    Developer Beta 3 will be released today, or this week. PB1 will be DB3.

    Possibility 3.

    Apple releases PUBLIC BETA, which is Faster, and better. We will get the Beta 3, after PB1.



    I personally don't think the possibility 3.
    I think either 2 or 1?


    What do you guys think?

    I hope they release an updated version as both developer releases have been horrendously bad on older non-SSD Macs.

    High Sierra beta 2 update 1 is out.

    Tomorrow is the last day of June. I wondering if High Sierra beta 2 update 1 will also be released as Public beta 1.

    I also wonder why they call it developer beta 2 update 1 instead of just calling it beta 3.
