So silly that an entire OS update is still required to roll out an enhancement to one app

I've been saying this for years. Separate the Apps from the OS apple. Hire a development team solely for Apple Music (You can even allow someone like Lowe to be head of that team) and give us Apple Music updates a little more frequently. If you want to be a service company, then the services should be like priority number 5 in the rankings of how said company is run.

I was running macOS Ventura until six days ago when Apple force upgraded my system to Sonoma ('https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ventura-magically-updated-to-sonoma.2416284/') with no user input from me. I'd like to see a MacRumors article explaining what is going on here and how to prevent it in the future.

For public release full installers you can run these in terminal:

Sonoma:

for file in $(curl -# https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-14-1.sucatalog | grep Info.plist | grep -Evw '(Info.plist.integrityDataV1|InstallInfo.plist)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g); do
curl -# $file | egrep -EA 1 '(>Build<|OSVersion)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g | sed -e s/"<key>"//g -e s/"<\/key>"//g -e s/\ //g
echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done

Ventura:

for file in $(curl -# https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-13-1.sucatalog | grep Info.plist | grep -Evw '(Info.plist.integrityDataV1|InstallInfo.plist)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g); do
curl -# $file | egrep -EA 1 '(>Build<|OSVersion)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g | sed -e s/"<key>"//g -e s/"<\/key>"//g -e s/\ //g
echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done


Monterey:

for file in $(curl -# https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-12-1.sucatalog | grep Info.plist | grep -Evw '(Info.plist.integrityDataV1|InstallInfo.plist)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g); do
curl -# $file | egrep -EA 1 '(>Build<|OSVersion)' | sed -e s/"<string>"//g -e s/"<\/string>"//g -e s/\ //g | sed -e s/"<key>"//g -e s/"<\/key>"//g -e s/\ //g
echo $file | sed -e "s/Info.plist/InstallAssistant.pkg/g"
done


The links and builds will be revealed.

So you don't have to wait till some dude posts them up on the net somewhere. You can get them as fast as apple puts them up.
