How to Download and Install macOS High Sierra Beta 2 without Developer Account

So, what if you don't have a dev account? No problem, at all! Go through this complete guide to download and install macOS High Sierra beta on your Mac even without the developer account.

macOS High Sierra, with several attractive features, has stood up to the mark during my test. With much smarter Safari and more intelligent Siri, the new macOS is certainly a step in the right direction. Currently, it’s available only in developer beta. Hence, you will be able to test it out only if you have got a dev account. But what if you don’t have it? Turns out, you can still download and install macOS High Sierra even without the developer account.

Luckily, it’s not a major deal to find out a macOS High Sierra beta profile. Once you have the beta within your reach, it becomes quite straightforward to get started with the usual process. Let me show you how it works!
