Apple macOS 13 Developer Preview Beta 6 Released

Apple today pushed the macOS 13 developer preview Beta 6 update (build number: 22A5331f) to Mac computer users. This update is 17 days after the last release.

macOS Ventura introduces new pre-stage scheduling, allowing Mac users to focus on one task while keeping other apps ready to easily switch between tasks. The update supports Continuity Camera, which allows you to use your iPhone as a webcam for your Mac. Continuity Camera brings several innovative features to all Mac computers, including Portrait Centering and Portrait Mode, as well as new Studio Lighting, which dims backgrounds and focuses light on the user's face for optimal results.

In addition, the continuous interoperability camera can also use the iPhone's ultra-wide-angle camera to realize the desktop view function, showing the user's face and the top view of the desk table at the same time, which is especially suitable for creating handmade videos, displaying hand-painted works on the FaceTime calling app, and more.  

Handoff is now also available in the FaceTime app, allowing users to start a FaceTime call on one Apple device and seamlessly switch to another nearby Apple device to continue the call. Users can start a FaceTime call on an iPhone or iPad, then switch the call to the Mac with a single tap, or start the call with the Mac and switch the call to the iPhone or iPad when they need to leave their seat.

The Messaging app for Mac can now edit or undo messages you just sent, mark messages as unread, and even restore accidentally deleted messages. Users can also join simulcast sharing on the Mac directly using the Messaging app to share the sync experience while chatting.

With the new version of the Mail app, users can also schedule emails to be sent, and even cancel them within 10 seconds of hitting the send button, and the Weather and Clock apps are now available on the Mac. System Preferences has been renamed to System Settings, with a new streamlined design and easier navigation, making it instantly accessible for iPhone and iPad users.

Safari supports shared tab groups, and Apple is developing passkeys, a next-generation authentication method that replaces passwords. Spotlight gets an update, iCloud shared library has new features. macOS Ventura includes Metal 3 for better graphics performance in games.
