Apple has released the second beta of macOS Catalina and tvOS 13 to its public beta testing group. The updates come one week after seeding the first public beta.
Beta testers can download the macOS Catalina beta through the Software update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper profile.
Interested users can become part of Apple’s beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website. Also, public beta testers can download the new update by going to the Settings app on the Apple TV and navigating to the Software Updates section under “System.” Apple TV will start downloading the beta software once you enable the toggle of “Get Public Beta Updates.”
The tvOS 13 brings many new things including a new Home screen that’s aimed to make it easier for you to find new content. It offers multi-user support, letting each member of the family have their own customized Apple TV interface with separate recommendations, music playlists, and Watch Now lists. Apple is also adding new under-the-sea themed screensavers made in partnership with the BBC Natural History unit, also known for "Blue Planet.
It’s recommended that before updating the macOS Catalina or any other beta update, you do a full back up or use a secondary device. Betas are unstable and can cause issues to your devices.
