Apple macOS Ventura: What To Know

At WWDC 2022, Apple introduced Apple macOS Ventura, which would replace Monterey this fall.

It’s a deliberate evolutionary improvement to a snappy operating system made slicker by Apple’s M1 and M2 hardware.

WWDC in June didn’t introduce any ground-breaking innovations, but you’ll want to download Ventura. Here’s when you may download it and its primary features.

What Has Changed in macOS Ventura?

Apple addressed Stage Manager and Continuity Camera in detail. Read about macOS Ventura’s top 5 new features. We have 10 hidden macOS Ventura features.

Stage Manager

Stage Manager organises open programme windows on Mac and iPadOS 16. It keeps the current window in the centre of the screen and places other open windows as tiny icons on the left. Easy window switching. Group open windows by tasks or projects.
When Stage Manager was announced, it was unclear which iPads would support it (only specific iPad Pro models). Macs don’t have this problem. Stage Manager works on macOS 13 Ventura.

Continuity Camera

macOS 13 Ventura redesigns the webcam. Continuity makes your iPhone camera your Mac’s webcam. FaceTime and other camera apps may add Center Stage, Portrait, Studio Light, and more to Macs.

Belkin is producing stands that hold your iPhone over your Mac. They’ll arrive this fall with macOS.

Spotlight

Apple’s Spotlight search will be updated. Quick Look previews files. You can search by location, object, person, etc. You can search Live Text within photos and videos. Spotlight users can create documents, start timers, and more. Apple improved Ventura Spotlight search.

Apple incorporated new Reminders features in macOS Ventura. You may group reminders by time and date, pin lists, and save lists as templates. MacOS Ventura Reminders has new functionality.

Mail

Mail will have improved search, but the most anticipated feature will be the option to cancel and schedule emails. Both are third-party features, so it’s fantastic to see Apple adding them. How to unsend and schedule Apple Mail emails.

Some are confused by the Hide My Mail feature, which should suggest it’s not necessary to share your email with third parties. Apple initially mentioned the capability, but it’s been removed from the Ventura email page in several countries. Hide My Email arrived in Monterey in 2021, but Apple was supposed to expand it in Ventura.

System Preferences

In macOS Ventura System Settings replaces System Preferences. System Settings on Mac has a sidebar appearance like iPad’s.

Safari & Passwords

Passkeys make passwords obsolete. Passkeys, available in Safari, offers end-to-end encryption to prevent phishing and data leaks. Apple believes Passkeys are stronger than two-factor authentication and operate on non-Apple devices.

Safari supports shared tab groups. These tabs let you share Safari tabs and bookmarks, exchange messages, and launch FaceTime.

Gaming

Mac gaming will explode (well Apple does anyway). Apple says new Macs can handle AAA games “easily.” Developers should benefit from Metal 3, MetalFX Upscaling, and Fast Resource Loading API.

Release Of Apple macOS Ventura

Apple discussed macOS features at WWDC 2022 on June 6 at 10 a.m. PT. The programme will be published later this year.

Apple’s Ventura Preview page says “coming this October” instead of “coming this fall.” We think this was changed after September 7.

MacOS Monterey was released on October 25, 2021, thus we expect the same with macOS 13. It may follow Apple’s October event. Apple Event news.

The initial developer beta followed Apple’s macOS preview. On September 9, 2022, Apple released the seventh developer beta.
Public beta testers can also sign up (here’s how to join Apple’s beta programme and install Ventura beta). 11 July saw the public beta. Version 4, released on August 26, is the latest public beta. Next public beta expected September 12. Apple macOS Ventura beta installation instructions.

Macs That Run MacOS 13 Ventura

While macOS isn’t as good as iOS at maintaining older devices, Apple tries to update as many Macs as possible. This year’s update drops support for any Mac older than 2017, whereas previous year’s Monterey supported early 2015 MacBook Air and Pro models and the 2013 Mac Pro.

Apple could discontinue supporting Intel-based Macs soon with its move to Apple Silicon almost complete, but we don’t see it occurring soon, especially because Apple has promised to distributing macOS updates for Intel-based Macs “for years to come.” Features may vary. It’s likely that Intel-based Macs can’t handle some new features.

MacOS 13 Ventura-supported devices include:

2017-later MacBooks
2018-later MacBook Air
2017-later MacBook Pro
After 2018
2017-later iMac
2017-later iMac Pro
After 2019
