The second beta release of version 13.0 of the macOS Ventura operating system is now available for registered developers to download and test.
The most recent builds are available for download via the Apple Developer Center for those who are enrolled in the Developer Beta program. Additionally, an over-the-air upgrade is available for those who have hardware that is already being utilized for beta software.
When a developer build is released, a public beta version is released shortly thereafter, but not until several builds into the early milestone betas have been made available. As soon as they are available, they can be downloaded from the Apple Beta Software Program website.
After the WWDC presentation on June 6, Apple released the first beta version of macOS Ventura for developers. By the end of the year, the final version will be distributed to the public.
There are new features including Stage Manager, enhanced Spotlight search, and iCloud Shared Photo Library in the latest version of the operating system. In order to improve the interoperability of its devices and apps, Apple developed a variety of developer APIs to foster collaboration and continuity.
Build 22A5286j replaces build 22A5266r as the second beta for macOS 13.
Both AppleInsider and Apple themselves advise customers not to install beta software on “mission-critical” or primary devices, as there is a remote risk that users could experience data loss or other problems as a result of doing so. Installing betas on secondary or non-essential devices is what testers should do instead. Before updating, they should also ensure that there are sufficient backups of crucial data.
Instead of getting onto the developer beta, members of the general public who are interested in testing out the operating systems should, at the very least, wait until the public betas begin before attempting to do so.
