Apple Seeds Second Beta of macOS Ventura 13.1 to Developers

Apple today released the second beta of the upcoming macOS Ventura 13.1 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after Apple released the first macOS Ventura 13.1 beta.

Registered developers can download the beta version through the Apple Developer Center. After installing the corresponding configuration file, the beta version will be provided through the software update mechanism in the system settings.

With ‌macOS Ventura‌ 13.1, Apple introduces the Freeform app, designed for creative collaboration. It can be used for brainstorming, planning ideas, jotting down ideas, sketching and other creative purposes.

Users can insert drawings, notes, shapes, text boxes, photos, videos, PDFs, links, and other documents, while Freeform serves as a blank canvas. Free-form “boards” can be shared with others and discussed via FaceTime, with updates from all participants synced to everyone in real time.

‌macOS Ventura‌ 13.1 also introduces support for an updated Home app architecture that improves the performance of smart home devices, which are also available in iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2.
