Apple Seeds Release Candidate Version of macOS Ventura 13.3 to Developers [Update: Public RC Available]

Apple today seeded the release candidate version of macOS Ventura 13.3 to developers for testing purposes, with the new software update coming a week after the release of the fourth macOS 13.3 beta.

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

macOS Ventura 13.3 adopts the same new emoji characters that are in iOS 16.4 and iPadOS 16.4, including pink heart, light blue heart, left and right hand, moose, black bird, goose, wing, jellyfish, pea pod, finger, and more.

The update adds the new HomeKit architecture that was initially removed from iOS 16.2 and its sister updates, and the revised version should have fewer bugs that affect ‌HomeKit‌ setups.

Call me when the feature description lead isn't emojis but rather bug fixes, stability issues, or compelling new features.

For a billion dollar company Apple really does have a bunch of lazy devs who randomly remove stuff to make their jobs easier...

I mean, they literally REMOVED the entire core data diagram view from Xcode (which was very helpful and useful) just because it caused some crashes... and then in the release note said Fixed: Remove diagram view. o_O

release note attached ??

I wish mac rumours would do this in one post. I don’t read any of these articles except very rarely. I usually have to scroll pass them all.

I assume more posts allows not ads.
Usually there can be quite a bit of OS specific discussions talking about confirming problems or fixed problems or new observations/discoveres. Mixing this all together creates a mess. Thats why they continue to separate them all.

Can't Wait! hopefully, this one is out when Apple releases the new Macbook Air 15" model.
Ah ha thats your only new OS motivation. Well I think the Mac Pro and updated iMac, Mac Studio hold more importance this time of year then 15" MBA which might be at WWDC.
