Given you have a previous beta of macOS 10.12.4 Beta installed on your Mac, follow the steps below in order to update to the latest build.

  • Connect your Mac to a WiFi network and save all your work.
  • Launch the Mac App Store and click on Updates.
  • As soon as macOS 10.12.4 Beta 5 becomes available, click on the Update button next to it.

The download process may take a while depending on the speed of your Internet connection. The installation, on the other hand, will require you to restart your Mac, therefore make sure you are prepped for that. Once the installation is complete and dusted, you can use your Mac as you normally would.

According to the changelog that comes attached with this update, Beta 5 brings with it nothing more than bug fixes and performance enhancements. Still, there is a chance that Apple might have packed something new in the OS. We will take it for a spin and see if the company actually has done so.

If you are using macOS 10.12.4 Beta on a Mac that is your daily driver, then it's highly recommended that you go ahead with the update process immediately. The amount of stability newer builds bring with them are an absolute godsend if you are asking us. So please, take the time out to update your Mac (or Macs) today.

You will also be pleased to learn that if you do not have an Apple Developer Program membership at hand, then you can try out macOS 10.12.4 Beta for free as well. Simply head over to and sign up to the company's Beta Software Program.
