macOS 13 Ventura beta 9 is finally available to developers after Apple released the final version of iOS 16, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16 on September 12. The company aims to release this operating system next month alongside iPadOS 16.1. Here’s what’s new in macOS Ventura.
macOS 13 Ventura mainly focuses on continuity features, such as the ability to start a FaceTime call on Mac and switch seamlessly to iPhone or iPad. There is also an update for public beta testers.
Another great addition to the macOS 13 Ventura beta is the Stage Manager function, which is not only available on the iPad, but will also help users organize their workflows between apps and windows. For the first time, this operating system also brings two new stock applications: The clock and Time.
With macOS 13 Ventura beta 5, Apple has finally fixed one of the most annoying bugs of the beta cycle: Notification Center once again shows real-time notifications.
For the macOS 13 Ventura ecosystem, which is currently in beta testing, collaboration is another important word:
- With posts, you can send invitations to collaborate so that all members of a thread are automatically added to the document spreadsheet or project. Users will be able to see changes in real time and developers will be able to integrate their app’s collaboration experiences with Message and FaceTime;
- With iCloud Sharing Photo Library you can share your photo library with your family and give everyone equal permissions to add, edit, favourite, caption and delete photos
Safari is also getting some love with new collaboration features with:
- Shared tab groups lets you share a set of tabs with friends. Anyone can add their own tabs and see the tab group update instantly when working together.
In addition to macOS 13 Ventura beta 8, Apple has seeded betas 16.1 of iOS and tvOS and 9.1 of watchOS.
