Apple is in Phase 4 beta testing for macOS Ventura 13.1, providing developers with a fresh build for testing.
The latest builds can be downloaded by developers participating in the beta testing program through the Apple Developer Center or as an over-the-air update for any hardware already running beta builds. Public beta releases usually appear shortly after their developer counterparts available on the Apple Beta Software Program website.
Beta 4 replaces Beta 3, which arrived on November 15th and replaced Beta 2 on November 8th. The first beta version was released on October 25th.
The fourth macOS Ventura 13.1 beta build is 22C5059b, replacing the third build, 22C5050e. Apple has also released macOS Monterey 12.6.2 beta for developer testing.
AppleInsider and Apple itself are strongly urging users not to install betas on “critical” or essential devices due to the negligible chance of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install betas on non-essential or non-essential devices and make sure there are enough backups of important data before upgrading.
