Apple today launched the tenth beta of macOS 13 Ventura, the next-generation version of the Mac operating system slated to launch this fall. The tenth beta comes a week after Apple released the ninth beta to developers.
Registered developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center and once the appropriate profile is installed, betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.
macOS Ventura introduces Stage Manager, a new feature that allows Mac users to focus on one task while keeping other applications ready to easily switch between tasks. The update adds Continuity Camera, which is designed to let you use iPhone as a webcam for your Mac. It supports Center Stage, Desk View (to show your desktop) and Studio Light.
Handoff is now available for FaceTime so you can transfer calls between iPhone, iPad, and Mac at will, and Messages supports features to mark an iMessage as unread, unsend an iMessage, and Mark as unread. SharePlay now also works in the Messages app.
The Mail app supports scheduling and canceling emails up to 10 seconds after they’ve been sent, and there are now Weather and Clock apps available on Mac. System Preferences has been renamed System Settings and features an iOS-like design.
Safari supports shared tab groups, and Apple is working on Passkeys, a next-generation ID that replaces passwords. There are Spotlight updates, Photo Library has new features, and Metal 3 is included in macOS Ventura for better graphics in games.
For everything new in macOS Ventura, we have a dedicated roundup that goes over all the features. macOS Ventura is set to see a public release in October.
