Apple releases the first developer beta for macOS Ventura 13.2

macOS Ventura 13.2 beta 1 now available for developers

Last updated

Apple has released the first developer beta for macOS Ventura 13.2, starting a new generation of beta software.

Developers can download the latest builds by taking part in the beta testing program via the Apple Developer Center. Public beta versions of the releases generally arrive a short while after their developer counterparts, available through the Apple Beta Software Program.

The first beta of macOS Ventura 13.2 follows the release candidate of macOS Ventura 13.1 that Apple issued on December 7.

The first beta of macOS Ventura 13.2 has build number 22D5027d, replacing the final release candidate of macOS Ventura 13.1, which had build number 22C65. Apple officially released macOS Ventura 13.1 to the public on December 13.

Apple also released betas for macOS Monterey 12.6.3 and macOS Big Sur 11.7.3 for testing on devices that aren't supported by macOS Ventura.

AppleInsider and Apple strongly advise users don't install beta operating systems, or beta software in general, on to "mission-critical" or primary devices, as there is the chance of issues that could result in the loss of data. Testers should instead use secondary or non-essential hardware and ensure they have sufficient backups of their critical data at all times.
