macOS 13 Ventura public beta is now available, here’s how to download
After releasing three betas, Apple is finally releasing the public beta version of macOS Ventura, so that more users can try out the upcoming Mac operating system. Additionally, Apple is also releasing a revised version of Beta 3 for developers. Here’s what you need to know about macOS Ventura and how to install its public beta.
Today’s version is 22A5295i. macOS 13 Ventura mainly focuses on Continuity features, such as the ability to start a FaceTime call on the Mac and seamlessly switch to iPhone or iPad.
Another great addition to macOS 13 Ventura is the Stage Manager feature, which is not only available on the iPad, but will also help users organize their workflows between apps and windows. For the first time, this operating system also brings two new stock apps: Clock and Weather.
Collaboration is another important word with the macOS 13 Ventura ecosystem:
- With posts, you can send invitations to collaborate so that all members of a thread are automatically added to the document spreadsheet or project. Users will be able to see changes in real time and developers will be able to integrate their app’s collaboration experiences with Message and FaceTime;
- With iCloud Sharing Photo Library you can share your photo library with your family and give everyone equal permissions to add, edit, favourite, caption and delete photos
Safari is also getting some love with new collaboration features with:
- Shared tab groups lets you share a set of tabs with friends. Anyone can add their own tabs and instantly see the tab group update as you work together.
Along with the macOS 13 Ventura public beta, Apple is releasing the iOS 16 public beta, iPadOS 16 public beta, watchOS 9 public beta, and tvOS 16 public beta.
