The Latest macOS Ventura Beta Finally Lets You Chime Your AirTags
Apple’s latest macOS Ventura beta finally fixes an irritation with the Find My app that AirTags users have been dealing with for too long.
With the new beta installed, people are beginning to report that they can now chime their AirTags for the first time.
Previously, anyone who used a Mac to locate their AirTag would only be able to get directions to where the item tracker was likely to be found.
However, people using an iPhone or iPad were able to make the AirTag play a chime to make it easier to locate. Now, the macOS Ventura 13.1 beta includes that ability for the first time.
Apple is currently putting the macOS 13.1 Ventura through its beta paces but it’s expected to be released to the public soon enough. Apple is already expected to release iOS 16.2 to the public in the middle of December based on a previous claim by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. It’s likely that Apple will also release software updates for its other devices at the same time. Including the Mac.
This upcoming round of updates adds support for the new FreeForm collaborative notetaking app as well as an improved Home app architecture for improved performance and stability.
The Home system upgrade will not be compatible with devices that haven’t also been updated, however, which is why Apple is likely to release the updates for all hardware at the same time.
