macOS Ventura Download: How it works

As part of WWDC 2022, Apple released the first developer beta of macOS Ventura for download. Registered developers download via the Apple website download the beta configuration profile to their Mac. After installing the profile, the update window should open directly, through which the beta of macOS Ventura will be downloaded and installed. Access for developers is subject to a fee.

So far, only the first developer beta is available for download – the public beta of macOS Ventura is still a long way off. Apple named July as the release date for the public beta of the new Mac update. As soon as Apple makes the public beta available for download, you download it

Although the beta versions from Apple are usually quite stable, productive use is not recommended. However, anyone who would like to try out the new functions in advance can download the beta free of charge from July.

macOS Ventura installed on Mac: How does the downgrade work?

A downgrade from macOS Ventura to macOS Monterey is possible at any time, but it is a bit more complex than with the iPhone. The easiest way to downgrade is with a Time Machine backup. To do this, restart your Mac and hold down “CMD + R” while booting until the Apple logo appears. Then select “Restore from Time Machine Backup” to downgrade your Mac.

When is macOS Ventura due for release?

Apple only speaks of a release in autumn and does not give a specific release date. macOS Monterey was released just a few weeks after iOS 15 last year – in late October. A release in September or October is therefore considered likely.

  • Stage manager: Organize open windows and apps automatically and always keep the most important things in view. To do this, the system prominently displays the active window in the middle and arranges other open windows on the left half of the screen.
  • iPhone as a webcam: The iPhone camera offers excellent quality – and now you can simply use it as a webcam. The new macOS automatically recognizes the iPhone and connects to it wirelessly. Use clever features like the follow mode and benefit from optimal illumination of the face with studio light.
  • safari: Share surfing with other people: Easily share websites and tabs with other users and see which page is being viewed in real time. You can plan a trip together with others or research together for a new project.
  • Spotlight search: Apple has optimized search and uses modern technologies to deliver more precise results. Just click in the search field to immediately get the latest emails, documents, photos and more.
