Apple Releases Fourth Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.5

Apple today released the fourth 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 fourth 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.

The full installers are available now for

Ventura 13.5 beta 4 build 22G5059d
Monterey 12.6.8 RC 2 build 21G716
Big Sur 11.7.9 RC 2 build 20G1416

Rather than put links here, here is a way to display them in Terminal. I include the one for Sonoma too for completeness sake, although there is no new Sonoma today.

So to display the links to InstallAssistant.pkg in Terminal use these commands:

Sonoma

for file in $(curl -# https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-14seed-14-13-12-10.16-10.15-10.14-10.13-10.12-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog | grep Info.plist | grep -Evw '(Info.plist.integrityDataV1|InstallInfo.plist)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g); do

echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done

echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done

Monterey

echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done

Big Sur

for file in $(curl -# https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.16seed-10.16-10.15-10.14-10.13-10.12-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog | grep Info.plist | grep -Evw '(Info.plist.integrityDataV1|InstallInfo.plist)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g); do

echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done

These commands are more useful than actual links because they can be reused in the future for future betas too.

There will be many InstallAssistant.pkg's listed but usually the most recent applicable ones should be at or near the end of the lists.

More like 3 years, Big Sur is still getting updates.
Perhaps it's better to say you get system updates for previous two MacOS's during the current OS reign. :D
But when Sonoma launches then support for Big Sur would drop off with occasional security patches and Safari updates. So you are correct its more like 3 years.

Hi,
It looks like not many people is still interested in Monterey betas or updates. I'm running macOS Sonoma beta 2 and, in my humble opinion, is one of the initial betas running smooth and not too buggy so far, since my first contact with Mojave beta releases. This is what I think when counting the fewer posts on the latests articles in this site.

Regards,

There it is with the usual 1 day delay after the developer beta - I am done with Ventura, want the Sonoma public beta, hopefully within the next couple weeks or so
That is true, last year the PB arrived July 11th.

So there will be no more security updates to Ventura after Sonoma launches?
You usually have 2 years of security/Safari updates after a newer OS launches.
