macOS High Sierra public beta has been rolled out. As a Mac user, many of you would be lining up for the latest macOS to explore all the new features. To download and install macOS High Sierra on your Mac, you have to first register your account for the public beta program.
In case you had already joined a public beta program in the past, you won't need to sign up for macOS High Sierra. You just need to sign in with your Apple ID and enroll your device. Make sure you have the latest backup of your Mac (Apple menu → System Preferences → Time Machine). Besides, I would suggest installing the beta on your secondary device as the macOS still needs some more polish to run smoothly.
