The new beta version was released before that day, which Mac users were eagerly waiting for. So what came with macOS Monterey Release Candidate (RC) 2?
macOS Monterey RC 2 is now available
Apple releases beta versions of iOS and macOS operating systems separately for developers and users. The macOS Monterey RC 2 release is for the general public. So it’s not just for developers. The company said in a statement that it fixed some bugs that appeared in previous beta versions.
Beta versions are being prepared to test new features that will be added to the macOS Monterey operating system. Apple fixes bugs in the light of the feedback it receives about known software problems and prefers to make it available when it becomes trouble-free. Therefore, you should think twice before installing macOS Monterey RC 2. You may have negative experiences.
Stable version is live on October 25th
The macOS Monterey operating system, which Apple officially introduced at the WWDC21 event, was in beta until now. In fact, the stable version of iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and watchOS 8, which appeared at the same launch, was opened 1 month ago. However, the company made macOS Monterey wait for a while.
