Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Ventura 13.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Ventura 13.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the beta coming one day after the release of macOS Ventura 13.1 and more than a month 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 Settings.

We don't yet know what new features or changes are included in macOS Ventura 13.2, but should we find anything in the beta, we'll update this article.

Is Ventura currently stable? I'm still back on Monterey. Not one to jump in feet first...
If by stable you mean it doesn’t crash and burn and destroy your data then it’s been stable since day one. You read too many horror stories from people who don't what they are talking about. Of course there are always glitches, bugs, none of which are show stoppers. Go to the Apple Discussion Forums and take a look at the macOS section to see people sill griping about supposed bugs in previous versions, ALL of them. And of course, each new upgrade, update, patch is declared to be the worst ever to be foisted on poor unsuspecting Apple users.

13.3?
No. 13.2


Also, why must there be an individual post for each device?
Because not every time all the releases go out at the same time (day or hour), also it's good to be able to have an OS-specific discussion which is harder to follow in a post that covers all releases.

Woo! Ventura 13.2 is what has been reported on those Geekbench scores for the unreleased Macs. Will be interesting to see how quickly the beta progresses. Was about 49 days from the first 13.1 beta to its release. 7 weeks from now we'll be in February, which is when the M2 Pro/Max MacBooks are rumored.

One step closer to seeing new hardware!
