macOS 13.3 Coming Soon With Fix for Network File Sharing

Since the release of macOS 13.2 in late January, some Mac users have complained about network file sharing via SMB not working anymore. Fortunately, with the upcoming macOS 13.3 update, it appears that Apple has fixed the issue.

Ventura Macs Feature Yellow
Several users who were affected by the issue have noted that network file sharing is functional again as of the third beta of macOS 13.3 and later, with one user saying that Apple confirmed a fix was implemented. macOS 13.3 is in the final stages of beta testing and is expected to be publicly released as soon as next week.

Users complained about macOS 13.2 breaking network file sharing across the MacRumors Forums, Apple Support Community, Reddit, and Twitter.

File Sharing can be enabled in System Settings → General → Sharing and allows for a Mac's files to be accessed remotely over a local network. For example, a user may have a Mac mini set up as a server and enable File Sharing on that computer in order to remotely access files from their primary computer, such as a MacBook Pro.

This seems like a basic function that should have been promptly fixed in a #.#.1 update instead of waiting for a .1 update.

This never should have needed a fix. Apple's QA department is too busy on TikTok.

Pretty crazy that this just sat there broken and there was no rush to fix it. Shows you the way people use computers now has really changed in favor of cloud vs LANs.

I see this as an unfriendly way to force folks to use the meager Apple iCloud storage space for an exorbitant price every month. SMB has been broken since 13 came out I have spent hours trying to get it to work. There a lot of expletives floating through my mind best left there than on a public space.....

Pathetic that it's taken Apple this long to fix. It's an indication where their priorities are.
