Apple has released the developer beta for macOS 10.15.2 and has made it available for those enrolled in the Beta Program. This comes alongside the newly released iOS 13.2.2 which brings fixes for background app errors, as well as the first developer beta for iOS 13.3.

The macOS 10.15.2 is the successor to macOS 10.15.1, which was released just a week ago, MacRumors noted. It can be downloaded only after enrolling in the Beta Program and installing necessary software from the Developer Center. Once done with that, all developers need to do is to go to System Preferences and then Software Update.

Nothing is known about macOS 10.15.2's features at the moment. Apple hasn't specified what changes come with the macOS update. It will most likely bring subtle performance improvements, security updates, and fixes for issues and bugs macOS 10.15.1 wasn't able to address.

With that said, here's what last week's macOS 10.15.1 brought to the iMac, Mac, MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, as per 9To5Mac.
