Apple Seeds Eleventh Beta of macOS 13 Ventura to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the eleventh beta of macOS 13 Ventura, the next-generation version of the Mac operating system that's set to launch this fall. The eleventh beta comes one week after Apple provided the tenth 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 lets Mac users focus on a task while keeping other apps at the ready for easy swapping between tasks. The update adds Continuity Camera, which is designed to let you use the iPhone as a webcam for your Mac. It supports Center Stage, Desk View (for showing off your desk), 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 for marking an iMessage as unread, unsending an iMessage, and marking as unread. SharePlay also now works in the Messages app.

The Mail app supports scheduling and undoing emails for up to 10 seconds after they're sent, and there are now Weather and Clock apps that are available on the Mac. System Preferences has been renamed System Settings, and it features an iOS-like design.

Safari supports Shared Tab Groups and Apple is working on Passkeys, a next-generation credential that replaces the password. There are updates to Spotlight, 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 through all of the features. ‌macOS Ventura‌ is set to see a public release in October.

Normally Beta is feature complete free of known bugs. Alpha may have bugs on any feature.
Beta collects customer feedback not about bugs but about the behavior of features to adjust before the final release.
Continuity camera is a major feature of Ventura, if this is not caught by QA, how many other issues are in the release that are not obvious.

I switched back to beta 8 which is working with the features I observe.
Thats not true for MacOS, iOS, Android, or Windows betas. Ever. So I have 0 idea where you got that impression from or why you think that. If anything Beta just means the API's are ready to go.

What's the record number of betas for OS X / macOS? This is definitely up there.

I'm looking forward to FaceTime handoff. It's nice to finally have a Weather app too.
Mac OS X Leopard had its first developer previews issued in August 2006, and the software didn’t officially release until October 2007.
It originally had a “late 2006” launch window before being delayed to “spring 2007”, then again delayed to “October 2007”.

Glad I got the M2 Pro! (For the TouchbBar mostly, but the fan & looks also)

The most underrated computer of the year. I have the M2 Pro as well, and I have no regrets. It's an incredible machine.
Guys you should call it a M2 MBP (13") not a M2 Pro Mac. You might confuse some. :D
