Apple Seeds Release Candidate Version of macOS Ventura 13.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the RC version of an upcoming macOS Ventura 13.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the update coming one week after the release of the second macOS Ventura 13.2 beta.

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.

The macOS Ventura 13.2 update introduces support for Security Keys for the Apple ID, allowing users to verify their identity with physical hardware rather than a digital device code. Security Keys offer additional protection for the ‌Apple ID‌, replacing the current verification codes provided on a secondary device when signing into a new device, signing into iCloud, using the Apple Store, and more. Apple's full release notes on the update are below.

This update introduces Security Keys for Apple ID, and includes other enhancements and bug fixes for your Mac.
- Security Keys for Apple ID allow users to strengthen the security of their account by requiring a physical security key to sign in
- Fixes an issue in Freeform where some drawing strokes created with Apple Pencil or your finger may not appear on shared boards
- Fixes an issue where VoiceOver may stop offering audio feedback while you are typing
Some features may not be available for all regions, or on all Apple devices. For detailed information about the security content of this update, please visit: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201222

macOS Ventura is set to see a public launch next week.

Ventura 13.1 has been horrible as far as System Settings go on my M1 MacBook Air. I get terrible lag navigating within it, and some areas just come up blank after finally going to the selected system preference I'm choosing. I tried a reinstall of Ventura two days ago, which seemed to fix it for one day. Now it's back to the laggy behavior and missing info.

Use the view pull down menu when settings is opened, 40 choices to pick from rather than navigate the vertical hierarchy.
