macOS Hints: Testing macOS-Betas

Tip how to install and try out macOS betas

Finder

Apple's new operating systems always bring additional and interesting features. At the beginning of June at WWDC 2021, Apple presented its upcoming operating system macOS Monterey (version 12). This macOS version is not expected to be officially available until fall. Nevertheless, developers registered with Apple as well as interested users can already try out the so-called beta systems.

Since it is not yet stable and final software, but rather a construction site, which can however already be walked on, you should not use such betas as a work or everyday system.

The safest and easiest way to install a macOS beta system is to use a partition or external hard drive.

This ensures that the previous operating system remains on the Mac and you create a new volume for the beta or connect it externally.

Below are the steps for a successful beta installation of macOS Monterey.

M1-Macs: Help with Problems

How to Repair M1 Macs with Apple Configurator

M1

The new Apple M1 Macs are true wonder machines. They are fast, efficient and power-saving. They are completely different from the previous Intel Macs. If you are looking for a PRAM reset, NVRAM reset or any other previously known startup handle, you won't find it anymore.

This in turn raises the question, what if the M1-Mac no longer starts or the firmware goes on strike?

There is only one button that you have to press. Thus, you keep the power button pressed until the startup options appear on the screen.

This takes you to options that, for example, reboot the system. This is always helpful if macOS stops working properly and you still want to keep your data. Furthermore, with the help of Disk Utility, you can repair the hard drives, partition them and get rid of most of the problems.

But what to do if that doesn't work either and the startup options don't work anymore? In principle, the Mac remains completely inaccessible.
