Apple has released the macOS Monterey 12.5 beta 3. The first beta was released just a day after Apple released macOS Monterey 12.4 to all users. The update was released with a minor change to the Podcasts app and support for Studio Display firmware 15.5.
This will likely be the last macOS Monterey 12.x beta before WWDC 22, which will take place next month. Apple is expected to reveal macOS 13 during the event.

June 14 – The third developer beta is now available.
June 1 – The second public beta is now available.
May 31 – The second developer beta is now available.
May 19 – The first public bet is now available.
May 18 – Apple has not shared any release notes whatsoever for macOS Monterey 12.5 beta. Considering that the previous macOS update was minor in nature, we do not expect much different from this one.
We will update this post as we find and discover any noticeable new changes.
The following Macs are compatible with this software update.
- MacBook Air (early 2015 and later)
- MacBook Pro (early 2015 and later)
- MacBook (early 2016 and later)

macOS Monterey 12.5 beta is available for installation via Apple Developer Center as a restore image for Macs with M1 chip, or via beta profiles that can be used to enroll Macs in Apple’s developer beta program. We do not recommend that you install a beta on a Mac with M1 chip unless you know what you are doing. The restore process for M1 Macs is not as easy and straightforward as it was with Intel Macs.
If you already have your Mac enrolled in Apple’s developer beta program, simply go to System Preferences > Software Update, and the new beta download should appear.
