Apple releases second developer beta for macOS 13.5 Ventura

Mac developer users have a new beta

Apple has updated the beta program for macOS Ventura 13.5, and the second beta is now accessible for developer testing.

Developers who are part of the program can acquire the most recent builds by visiting the Apple Developer Center or updating their Macs with the beta software. Public beta versions, typically released shortly after the developer versions, can be obtained through the Apple Beta Software Program.

The initial beta version of macOS Ventura 13.5 carries the build number 22G5038d, an update from the 22G5027e build that was introduced as the first release of macOS Ventura 13.5 on May 19.

Although specific details about the features and changes in these new betas have not been disclosed, more information will become available as developers explore and interact with the operating systems.

AppleInsider and Apple strongly suggest users don't install beta operating systems or other beta software on "mission-critical" or primary devices, as there is the small 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.
