Apple is edging ever closer to the release of macOS Ventura, and has provided developer beta testers with a tenth build of the operating system.
The freshest betas can be pulled from the Apple Developer Center by developers signed up for the test program, or as an over-the-air update for devices already running beta software. Public betas typically appear a short time after the developer versions, and are downloaded through the Apple Beta Software Program website.
Final public versions of macOS Ventura are expected to arrive sometime in October. Apple also released beta builds for older operating systems containing similar security patches found in macOS 13. Those beta versions are macOS 11.7.1 and macOS 12.6.1, which will presumably be released alongside macOS 13.
New features included in macOS Ventura include Stage Manager app management and multitasking, Live Captions for video, Finder and System Settings changes, Spotlight updates, Continuity Camera that turns an iPhone into a webcam, Passkeys, and upgrades to Messages, and Safari, Photos, among other alterations.
AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly advise users avoid installing betas on to “mission-critical” or primary devices, as there is the small chance of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices, and to make sure there are sufficient backups of important data before updating.
