Apple is getting ever closer to the release of macOS Ventura and has provided beta-testing developers with a tenth version of the operating system.
The latest beta versions can be acquired through the Apple Developer Center by developers enrolled in the program, or as an over-the-air update on devices already running beta software. Public betas usually appear shortly after the developer versions and downloaded via the Apple Beta Software Program website.
The tenth beta release is 22A5365d, replacing the eighth release, 22A5358e.
The final public versions of macOS Ventura are expected to arrive in October.
New features coming to macOS Ventura include Stage Manager for app management and multitasking, live video captions, Finder and system settings changes, Spotlight updates, Continuity Camera, password and upgrades to Messages, and Safari, Photos, among other changes.
AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly advise users to avoid installing beta builds on “critical” or mainstream devices, as there is a low risk of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install beta versions on secondary or non-essential devices and ensure there are enough backups of important data before updating.
