The developer preview of the next-gen macOS is already available to Apple Developer Program members, while a public beta for all Mac users is scheduled to kick off later this month. The free software update is expected to arrive this fall, packing various refinements to Photos, Safari, Mail, and more.

Apple has just unveiled the latest version of its desktop operating system, currently in a developer preview stage. Dubbed macOS High Sierra, this update is scheduled to hit the market this fall, but those eager to test it can access the public beta by the end of this month. However, members of the Apple Developer Program can already try the Developer Preview build right now.

According to the official press release, "macOS High Sierra offers an all-new file system, support for High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and an update to Metal, Apple’s advanced graphics technology that powers everything from machine learning to virtual reality content creation."

In addition to the above, macOS High Sierra also comes with multiple tweaks to the Mac apps most users enjoy on a daily basis, such as Photos, Safari, or Mail. All macOS users should be able to get it as a free software update from the Mac App Store "this fall," reveals Apple. We will get back to it as soon as we find out more, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
