macOS Sierra beta 2 is now available to download for all compatible Mac computers. We'll show you how you can update right away.
macOS Sierra Beta 2 Is Available For Download; Here's How To Install It
Apple released macOS Sierra beta 2 today for registered developers. As usual, the second beta is available directly from the Apple Developer Program website if you want to install fresh. But if you already happen to have Sierra installed on your Mac, then updating to the second beta is a walk in the park.
First and foremost save everything you're working on - documents, photos, videos etc. Now launch the Mac App Store while also ensuring you're connected to a fast and stable Internet connection. Click on the 'Updates' tab and then click on the 'Download' button next to macOS Sierra beta 2.
The completion of the installation will require you to restart your Mac. That's why you should save your files. Lastly, we will not recommend using your Mac during installation process. You need everything to go as smoothly as possible.
If you do not have macOS Sierra beta installed on your Mac, simply head over to the Apple Developer Program website to get started. At the top of the website you'll see a tab labeled 'Discover,' click on that. Once you're taken to the next screen click on 'macOS' at the top and then the blue 'Download' button. Select to download macOS 10.12 Sierra and you're good to go.

Warning For New Beta Users
We will not, in any case, recommend installing macOS Sierra beta on any Mac that serves the purpose of a daily driver for you. Wait till at least three or four betas are released before you make the jump to install it. After all, this is pure beta software, which means things can come to a standstill without any notice.
We will report back to users regarding any changes Apple might have slipped in the second beta build of macOS Sierra, so stay tuned.
