Apple has today made new versions of watchOS 9, tvOS 16, and macOS 13 Ventura available to developers. The new updates are the fifth developer betas to be made available.
Those who have the correct developer profiles installed can download these new updates to their test devices right now.
macOS 13 Ventura
Apple has now made the fifth developer beta of macOS 13 Ventura available for download, an update that shouldn’t be installed on devices that aren’t being used explicitly for beta testing. This update includes improvements to Mail, Messages, Safari, and more but it isn’t yet known what changes this particular beta release has to offer. Download it now if you’re a developer and have the correct profile installed.
The watchOS 9 update includes changes to the way notifications work as well as new watch faces and tweaks to the ECG app. This isn’t a watchOS update that includes as many changes as some previous ones, but it’s still worth installing if you’re a developer and you have the right profile installed. Again, it isn’t yet clear if Apple has made any notable improvements in this particular beta.
The tvOS updates are among some of the most understated and tvOS 16 is no different. The tvOS 16 update includes support for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers as well as HDR10+ support for specific content. The process for installing tvOS updates is a little more complicated and includes using Xcode, but if you’re someone who makes tvOS apps, this beta is worth downloading now.
