The most recent version of Apple’s Mac operating system, codenamed “macOS Ventura,” was unveiled at WWDC 2022. The new multitasking features and redesigned user interface in macOS Ventura are just a few of the many enhancements to the operating system and its many applications.
Apple has recently started giving each major release of macOS a name in addition to a version number, and this practice continues with Ventura. Since Mavericks debuted in 2013, it has been customary to take the name of a California monument or region.
The earlier versions of Apple’s Macintosh computers were sometimes referred to by the names of big feline (Jaguar, Lion, etc.). Since 13 is considered unlucky by some, Apple has decided to release the iPhone 13 in 2021.
On June 6 at 10 a.m. PT, Apple held a keynote at WWDC 2022 in which it announced new features for the macOS under development. The completed version was delivered on Monday, October 24. This update, like all the others before it, became downloadable at 10 a.m. PT.
Benefits of the New macOS Ventura
- Desk View is fantastic.
- The Mac now has apps for the time and the weather.
- System Settings are more lucid
- It’s great to use the iPhone as a camera.
- Automatic background removal in photos
Cons of macOS Ventura
- Not all users will find Stage Manager useful.
- Stage Manager is one of the components that feels a little clumsy.
- Certain features that were promised are initially being delayed
Some of the Macs that Ventura supports might not be able to use every new feature. The following Macs are supported by macOS Ventura, according to Apple:
- MacBook models from 2017 or later
- MacBook Air models from 2018 or later
- MacBook Pro models from 2017 or later
- Mac mini models from 2018 or later
- iMac models from 2017 or later
- iMac Pro (all models)
- Mac Pro models from 2019 or later
- Mac Studio (all models)
We anticipate that the first macOS 13.1 beta will be released for testing shortly after the release of the final version of macOS Ventura for all users.
