Apple has moved on to the second round of its developer beta for macOS 11.4.

The latest betas and configuration profiles can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center, with subsequent changes available as over-the-air updates on enrolled devices.

Apple issued the first developer beta for macOS 11.4 on April 21, followed by the first public beta on April 22.

While it isn't exactly clear what the changes are in the new version so far, release notes advise you can use graphics cards based on AMD's Navi RDNA 2 architecture, including the 6800, 6800XT, and 6900XT.

Both AppleInsider and Apple strongly suggest users avoid installing betas on to "mission-critical" or primary devices, due to the potential for data loss or other issues. Instead, the recommendation is to install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices, and to ensure there are sufficient backups of important data before making any major changes.
