Apple on Thursday seeded the second release candidate of macOS Ventura 13.4 to developers for testing. The new RC comes a few days after the first macOS Ventura 13.4 release candidate.
The second RC of macOS Ventura 13.4 can be downloaded by developers through the Apple Developer Center and once the correct profile is installed, succeeding betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.
macOS Ventura 13.4 brings a new beta installation method allowing developers and public beta testers to opt-in to receive beta updates without the need for a profile to be installed on their device. For developers, an Apple ID needs to be associated with a developer account to get access to a developer beta, while public beta testers need to sign up on Apple’s public beta website with their Apple ID and then elect to receive beta updates using the System Settings app.
From the macOS Ventura 13.4 release notes:
macOS Ventura 13.4 includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:
– Sports feed in the sidebar of Apple News gives easy access to stories, scores, standings, and more, for the teams and leagues you follow
– My Sports score and schedule cards in Apple News take you directly to game pages where you can find additional details about specific games
– Resolves an issue where Auto Unlock with Apple Watch does not log you into your Mac
– Fixes a Bluetooth issue where keyboards connect slowly to Mac after restarting
– Addresses a VoiceOver issue with navigating to landmarks on webpages
– Fixes an issue where Screen Time settings may reset or not sync across all devices
Some features may not be available for all regions, or on all Apple devices.
