in macOS
Apple is edging ever closer to the release of macOS Ventura, and has provided developer beta testers with a tenth build of the operating system.

The freshest betas can be pulled from the Apple Developer Center by developers signed up for the test program, or as an over-the-air update for devices already running beta software. Public betas typically appear a short time after the developer versions, and are downloaded through the Apple Beta Software Program website.

The eleventh beta replaces the tenth from October 4, which in turn took over from the ninth from September 27.

The eleventh beta build is number 22A5373b, replacing 22A5365d.

Final public versions of macOS Ventura are expected to arrive sometime in October. Apple also released beta builds for older operating systems containing similar security patches found in macOS 13. Those beta versions are macOS 11.7.1 and macOS 12.6.1, which will presumably be released alongside macOS 13.

New features included in macOS Ventura include Stage Manager app management and multitasking, Live Captions for video, Finder and System Settings changes, Spotlight updates, Continuity Camera that turns an iPhone into a webcam, Passkeys, and upgrades to Messages, and Safari, Photos, among other alterations.

AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly advise users avoid installing betas on to "mission-critical" or primary devices, as there is the small chance of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices, and to make sure there are sufficient backups of important data before updating.

    ...a small chance...?

    ...should Apple get Monterey fully working before working on anything else...?

    Public beta 10 installation just crashed and even macOs recovery stalled. So now I have to reinstall my iMac 27 inch. Not happy. I know about beta’s, risks etc, but I never experienced a hang of my whole computer requiring a total reinstall. Especially with a beta 10. This thing is not ready for launch I tell you.
