Apple Releases Second Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.5

Apple today released the second beta of macOS Ventura 13.5 to its public beta testing group, allowing the general public to try out the software ahead of its official launch. The macOS Ventura 13.5 public beta comes a few days after Apple provided the second beta to developers.

Ventura Macs Feature Red
Public beta testers can download the macOS 13.5 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 13.5, and no notable new features were found in the developer betas.

We're expecting to see Apple unveil macOS 14 in just a few days at WWDC, and macOS 13.5 should be one of the last updates to Ventura that will tide users over until the public release of macOS 14 later this year.

I am curious if anyone thinks MacOS 14 will bring any changes to Stage Manager. What say ye?
TBH, I had completely forgotten about Stage Manager... I played with it on my iMac and iPad for a few weeks when it was available.. then due to it being annoying disabled it and never looked at it again.

After years of lurking, created an account to say: Stage manager is fantastic and I use it daily. Why trash a feature because you don't personally use it? MacOS does tons of things and only a tiny sliver of users takes advantage of them all.

I don't know about Stage Manager, but there will undoubtably be gratuitous changes that make it look more like iOS. My hope is that the maladroit manager that approved the change from System Preferences to System Settings was canned and Apple will recover their senses and revert it back.
