Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Ventura 13.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Ventura 13.1 update to developers for testing purposes, with the beta coming one day after the official launch of macOS Ventura.

Ventura Macs Feature Red
Registered developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center and after the appropriate profile is installed, betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.

We don't yet know what new features or changes are included in macOS Ventura 13.1, but should we find anything in the beta, we'll update this article.

Apple runs like a well oiled machine when it comes to rolling out betas and updates. You have to give them credit for that.

I was on betas all the way up but now want to switch them off, but can't seem to find how? There are no profiles installed, and I can't find a checkbox for betas…

edit: never mind I got it. Have to click on the 'Learn more' link at the end of the 'This Mac is enrolled…" text.
Hi,

Try this on Terminal:

* To leave developer betas updates:

* sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Versions/A/Resources/seedutil unenroll DeveloperSeed

* To get developer betas releases:

* sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Versions/A/Resources/seedutil enroll DeveloperSeed


That's it!

Hey @Realityck this was addressed earlier in the thread, but I still don't get it - where in the System Settings (or elsewhere) do I find if I am or am not enrolled in Beta (I'm not a developer; I just use the Public) I want to get off the Beta train for a while...
Its easier to do by terminal (in utilities)
sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil unenroll

If you want to use PB again
sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil enroll PublicSeed
