Apple Releases Third Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.5

Apple today released the third 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 day after Apple provided the third 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.

macOS 13.5 will be one of the last updates to the macOS Ventura operating system as Apple prepares for the fall launch of macOS Sonoma.

Well, would you rather have fewer updates and be at the mercy of security issues and software bugs until Apple gets around to fixing things?
In my opinion, they could consider going back to a 2-3 year cycle for major feature updates, and yet still provide ongoing security patches in the meantime, like it was around the time of macOS Tiger through Snow Leopard. Aligning macOS to the annual iOS release schedule may be hurting more than helping. Perhaps the development team would be better off having the time and resources to focus on optimization and ironing out long-standing bugs, rather than being pressured to force out new features to meet the annual deadlines.

I can no longer upgrade to the latest OS :( This one doesn't support my older rMBP.
With Open Core Legacy Patcher, you most certainly can.

Is it just me? All of the continued releases get so tiring and overwhelming!
