Apple has restarted the beta cycle for macOS Sonoma with developer version 14.1 beta 1, though it isn't yet known what is included with the update.

Developers enrolled in the program can access the latest builds by either visiting the Apple Developer Center or updating their Macs to the newest beta software. For public users, beta versions are normally made available through the Apple Beta Software Program after the developer versions are released.

macOS Sonoma released to the public on Tuesday, September 26, so it's time to restart the beta cycle fresh. Developers can now test macOS Sonoma 14.1 beta 1 by turning on beta updates in System Settings.

Apple hasn't provided any notes about what is included in the macOS Sonoma 14.1 beta. It likely includes access to some of the features that were announced during WWDC but delayed later into 2023.

It is build is number 23B5046f, up from 23A344. Apple also released betas for macOS Ventura 13.6 and macOS Monterey 12.7 for testing.
