Apple is making quick progress on the development of macOS 10.15.1 after publishing its second beta build this morning.

macOS 10.15.1 beta 2 was seeded to developers today, arriving less than a week after the first beta was dropped. The new update brings a host of bug fixes to the Mac as Apple tries to patch up some of the holes in macOS Catalina which launched earlier this month.

Registered developers can download macOS 10.15.1 beta 2 from the online Apple developer portal. If you have the previous beta installed you can hit the “Software Update” option from the “About This Mac” section in your Apple menu. Public beta testers should be able to try the new software out within the next few days.

Apple seeded new software yesterday too. iOS 13.2 beta 3, watchOS 6.1 beta 4 and tvOS 13.2 beta 3 are also available to download.

What’s inside macOS 10.15.1

Release notes for macOS 10.15.1 beta 2 look pretty similar to the last beta build. Apple notes that it added support AMD Navi RDNA architecture. The Photos app added a new option that lets you filter by Favorites, Edited, Photos, Videos or Keywords in the All Photos view. You can also choose View > Metadata > Titles to enable titles and filenames in the new All Photos view.

The rest of the update seems to focus mostly on under-the-hood improvements. Apple might add support for the new Unicode 12 emoji in a future build but for now, it looks like the new characters are only available on iPhone and iPad.
