Apple Releases First Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.4

Apple today released the first beta of macOS Ventura 13.4 to its public beta testing group, allowing the general public to try out the software ahead of its official launch. The ‌macOS Ventura‌ 13.4 public beta comes two days after Apple provided the software to developers.

Public beta testers can download the macOS 13.4 Ventura update from the Software Update section of the System Preferences app after installing the proper profile from Apple's beta software website.

There is no word as of yet on what's included in ‌macOS Ventura‌ 13.4, and no notable new features were found in the developer beta.

Work on ‌macOS Ventura‌ is winding down as Apple prepares to shift its focus to macOS 14, the as-of-yet-unnamed next-generation version of macOS that we expect to see introduced this June at WWDC.

It's remarkable how every yearly MacOS release just achieves status 'stable' to use after 12 months and you get FOMO and the next release is already imminent. Please return to the Snow Leopard releases. Take your time introducing great worked out features and polishing the following next year. Stagemanager and many bug introduced features is results of this bad quality releases every year.

Things get rushed...

Hopefully it's 100% all bug fixes and stability improvements. Make what features already exist work perfectly and reliably.

Do not understand all this stupid comments. Ventura is the best macOS I have ever used in the last 15 years. Stable and reliable. I guess that people want just to be cool in complaining and writing childish comments.

Try it. It is really good (as it was from the very early betas).
