After four beta releases, Apple has seeded the macOS 12.4 release candidate for both developers and public testers. The build comes with support for the latest beta of the Studio Display webcam fix as well as a new feature to help manage Podcasts on Mac.

macOS 12.4 RC is now available via OTA for developers and public testers already enrolled in the beta as well as being available soon from Apple’s Developer website and public beta website. Today’s beta comes with build number 21F79.

We didn’t see much new in the first macOS 12.4 beta but Apple did include a warning that Universal Control functionality will require a Mac to be on the latest beta if an iPad is running iPadOS 15.5.

Then with the third macOS 12.4 beta, Apple seeded the first beta for the Apple Studio Display with a fix for the webcam:

Now with the macOS 12.4 RC, Apple will make the latest Studio Display update separate from the macOS build but it’s still in beta.

Another change coming with macOS 12.4 RC is a new setting in the Podcasts app to limit the number of episodes stored and automatically delete old content.

macOS 12.4 RC notes:

  • Apple Podcasts includes a new setting to limit episodes stored on your Mac and automatically delete older ones
  • Support for Studio Display Firmware Update 15.5, available as a separate update, refines camera tuning, including improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing
