Apple on Friday released the macOS Ventura 13.5 beta to developers. This is likely the last Ventura beta before Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off on June 5, when Apple is expected to unveil macOS 14. The 13.5 beta release comes a day after Apple released Ventura 13.4 to the general public. That version includes a new Sports feed for Apple News, bug fixes, and security updates.
Update 5/22/23: Apple has released the public beta of macOS Ventura 13.5.
macOS Ventura 13.5: New features
Apple hasn’t posted release notes for the 13.5 beta yet, so it’s not yet known what’s in this beta. It will likely include few new features, however, as Apple looks ahead to the release of macOS 14 this fall.
