Along with the third beta versions of the iOS 16.5 and iPadOS 16.5 updates, Apple has also released the third beta of macOS Ventura 13.4 to developers for testing. The update arrives two weeks after the second beta was launched, and developers can now download and install it to test its new features and bug fixes.
Developers can download the beta from the Apple Developer Center and install the appropriate profile. After installing the beta, the new version is available through the Software Update mechanism in System Settings.
Furthermore, developers can download macOS Ventura 13.4 beta 3 through the Apple Developer Center and install it by downloading the appropriate profile. The beta updates are also available through the Software Update mechanism in System Settings, making it easy for developers and public beta testers enrolled in Apple’s respective programs to toggle on beta updates directly on their Mac without having to install a profile.
One of the new features in macOS 13.4 is the simplified beta installation method that was first introduced in iOS 16.4. This allows developers and public beta testers to install beta updates directly from System Settings without having to use a profile. However, an Apple ID associated with either a public beta account or a developer account is required to turn on beta updates.
To turn on beta updates, developers and beta testers must have an Apple ID associated with either a public beta account or a developer account. It is no longer possible to use a developer profile that is not associated with a developer account to install the developer betas.
As usual, this beta is intended for developers only and is not recommended for use on a primary device. It is expected that the final version of macOS Ventura 13.4 will be released to the general public in the coming weeks.
