Apple has entered the third round of beta testing for macOS Ventura 13.1, and developers can now download the new build.
New beta releases can be obtained from the Apple Developer Center by developers who subscribe to Apple's testing program, or via an over-the-air update for hardware already running beta software. Public betas usually appear shortly after developer releases and are downloaded through the Apple Beta Software Program website.
The third beta replaces the second beta on November 8, which follows the first on October 25.
The third beta version of macOS Ventura 13.1 is 22C5050e, replacing the second, build 22C5044e.
Apple has also released macOS 11.7.2 beta and macOS 12.6.2 Release Candidate. These updates may be released alongside macOS 13.1 with fixes for vulnerabilities and other bugs.
Both AppleInsider and Apple itself strongly recommend that users do not install beta versions of operating systems or beta software in general on “critical” or essential devices, as there are potential issues that could occur in data loss. Instead, testers should use non-essential or non-essential hardware and also make sure they always have enough backups of important data.
