Apple Releases macOS 13 Ventura Beta 11 To Developers
Apple has today released the 11th macOS 13 Ventura beta to developers ahead of an expected release to the public over the next few weeks.
The update, which has been in beta testing since the June 6 WWDC event that saw it announced, will bring a number of new features to the Mac. Those who have the developer beta profile installed can now download the new update via the Software Update feature of System Preferences.
The new macOS 13 Ventura update brings with it support for Stage Manager, a new multitasking interface that mimics that of the iPadOS 16.1 update that is also expected to arrive within weeks. Other improvements include the ability to use an iPhone as a webcam as well as use Handoff over FaceTime to transfer calls between devices.
Apple will also allow Mac users to edit and unsend iMessages, just as they can with iOS 16, as well as update the way Spotlight works. The new macOS 13 Ventura update is a large one and will be a big addition to Macs around the world.
It will also bring feature parity with iPhones and iPads, specifically in terms of the new capabilities around iMessage.
Apple has also released new betas of iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16.1, and we can expect public beta testers to be able to get their hands on all of these releases over the next day or two — assuming no big bugs are found between now and then, of course.
