Apple Seeds Third Beta of macOS Ventura 13.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of macOS Ventura 13.4 to developers for testing purposes, with the beta coming two weeks after the launch of the second 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 13.4 adds the simplified beta installation method that was first introduced in iOS 16.4. With the update, developers and public beta testers enrolled in Apple's respective programs can toggle on beta updates from System Settings on the Mac, without the need to install a profile.

An Apple ID associated with either a public beta account or a developer account is required to turn on beta updates, which means that it is no longer possible to use a developer profile not associated with a developer account to install the developer betas.

I‘ve installed the Ventura 13.4 beta 3. There is no more flickering. Hope the Ventura 13.4 to public will be the same.

Constant crashes with external monitors. These issues have surfaced all along the Ventura cycle so it's worrying that they occur again at this supposedly stable end of the cycle.

The symptoms of this is the external monitor will lock up, but you can continue to work and shut down apps. If you try to disconnect and reconnect the external monitor you'll get a full freeze / KP. So your only option is to save your work and do a regular restart.
