Apple Releases First Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.3 /iOS / iPadOS 16.4

Apple has released the first public beta version of macOS Ventura 13.3 after launching the first developer preview version just a day earlier. Users who have joined the Apple Beta update program can perform software updates through the System Preferences application, and the macOS system will visit Apple's Beta software website to download the corresponding configuration files.

New Features in Public Beta Version of macOS Ventura 13.3

The first public beta version of macOS Ventura 13.3 includes support for Emoji 15, introducing 31 new emoji such as bobblehead, pink heart, blue heart, gray heart, donkey, moose, black bird, goose, wing, jellyfish, hyacinth, pea pod, ginger, fan, comb, flute, maracas, and some options for left-handed and right-handed orientation.

Additionally, the first public beta version of macOS Ventura 13.3 reintroduces the new HomeKit architecture, and the Messages app now supports previewing the content of Mastodon links. Shortcuts have also added more than a dozen new commands.

Official Launch of macOS Ventura 13.3

Apple plans to launch macOS Ventura 13.3 officially in the spring, from March 20 to June 20.

After launching the first developer preview version of iOS/iPadOS 16.4 yesterday, Apple has now released the first public beta version of the operating system.

Update Push for Apple Developer Program Members

Users who have registered to join the Apple Developer Program should receive an update push from Apple after checking for updates. It's worth noting that future beta updates will be linked to the Apple IDs of developers and public beta testers, the last time Apple pushed public betas in this traditional way.

Automatic Enabled Option for Devices Enrolled in Program

This new option will be automatically enabled on devices that have enrolled in the program and updated to the latest beta version. Your iPhone or iPad must be signed in with the same Apple ID you used to enroll in the Apple Developer Program to see this option in Settings. It's worth noting that in future versions of iOS and iPadOS, this new setting will be how developer betas are enabled, and provisioning profiles will no longer grant access.

Overall, these updates bring exciting new features to macOS and iOS/iPadOS users, and the beta testing process will help ensure the operating systems are ready for their official launch later this year.
