A day after its developer launch, the first macOS 12.2 beta is now available for those in the public beta program. The update includes a new native Apple Music app with faster searching and scrolling, as well as a fix for scrolling in Safari with ProMotion on MacBook Pro.
The first macOS 12.2 beta is now appearing via OTA for developers and public testers. You can also download it from Apple’s developer website or the public beta website if you’re not running the beta yet (full guide here).
macOS 12.2 introduces some notable changes with a new native Apple Music app. As we noted yesterday:
Some parts of the Music app were already native, like the music library. But now Mac users will notice that searching for new songs in Apple Music is much faster because the results pages are displayed with a native interface instead of a webpage. Scrolling between items has also become smoother with the beta app, and trackpad gestures are now more responsive.
Comparing the two apps side by side, the beta Music app might look simpler with some UI effects missing – that’s probably because Apple is rebuilding everything and it will be some time before the native version picks up all those visual effects.
macOS 12.2 beta 1 also improves scrolling in Safari with ProMotion on the new MacBook Pro.
