Apple releases macOS Ventura 13.3.1 to fix Apple Watch auto-unlock feature

New official release for macOS Ventura

Apple has released macOS Ventura 13.3.1 that fixes a bug with Auto Unlock with the Apple Watch.

The company has updated the Mac to version 13.3.1 just a couple weeks after the release of macOS Ventura 13.3. It's a minor update that fixes two bugs, according to Apple's release notes.

The update contains a fix for a bug that could prevent Auto Unlock with Apple Watch from working, as well as a fix for a problem that prevented the pushing hands emoji from displaying skin tone variations, according to Apple's release notes.

  • Pushing hands emoji does not show skin tone variations
  • Auto Unlock your Mac with Apple Watch may not work

Apple is also beta testing macOS Ventura 13.4 that will be released in the coming months.

Mac users can update by going to Settings > General > Software Update, and the build number is 22E261. Apple has also issued updates for iOS and iPad OS 16.4.1.
