Immediately after the release of macOS 13.1, Ventura’s first major update with features such as Freeform and Advanced Data Protection, Apple has already started working on the next release. The initial release is for developer account users only, but a public beta should follow shortly.
macOS Ventura 13.2 beta: new features
The macOS Ventura 13.2 beta includes support for FIDO-certified physical security keys that were announced as part of the advanced data protection for iCloud that arrived in 13.1. To test it on your Mac, go to your Apple ID in System Settings and click on the Security Keys tab. We will update this article as new features are discovered.
macOS Ventura 13.2: release date
It usually takes about six weeks for Apple to properly test new versions of its operating systems, but that timeline can change based on how extensive the release is. We expect macOS Ventura 13.2 to be released in late January or early February.
How to install the macOS Ventura 13.2 public beta
When the macOS 13.2 public beta arrives, you can install it on your Mac for testing. We do not recommend running it on your main machine for work as there may be bugs that can cause serious problems.
