More than a month after releasing its first developer beta, Apple has today released the macOS Big Sur Public beta and it is now available for download. Now any Mac user can download and install the macOS Big Sur beta without having access to the paid developer account.
Along side its first macOS Big Sur Public Beta release, Apple has also seeded iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 Public Beta 4, both of which can also be downloaded on compatible devices.
Before you jump into the Public Beta bandwagon do keep in mind that even though public betas are relatively more stable than the developer betas, they are still meant for testing devices. Apple recommends that users only install these betas on non-essential devices as the software is pre-release and bugs are expected.
You can download macOS Big Sur Public Beta, iOS 14 Public Beta 4 and iPadOS Public Beta 4 on your devices through Apple’s Public Beta Website.
Two days ago Apple had released iOS 14 beta 4 to developers. The beta 4 release brought a number of changes to the pre-release software. You can learn all about these changes here.
