macOS Ventura RC 2 Available for Beta Testers
Apple has issued a second release candidate build for MacOS Ventura for users enrolled in the beta testing programs for MacOS.
The MacOS Ventura RC 2 build number is 22A380, and presumably includes some bug fix or enhancement to something that was in the first RC build of 22A379.
Given that macOS Ventura is set to be released to the general public on Monday, October 24, it’s likely this new build will be the final version that is released to the general public.
MacOS Ventura includes a variety of new features including an all new multitasking interface called Stage Manager, Handoff support for FaceTime, email scheduling in Mail app, unsending emails in Mail app, Continuity Camera support for using iPhone as a webcam on the Mac, unsending and editing iMessages capabilities in Messages app, the inclusion of Clock app and Weather app, Safari Tab Groups, a renamed and redesigned System Settings, along with various other smaller changes and features.
Downloading MacOS Ventura Release Candidate 2
If you’re actively running a prior macOS Ventura beta, you can find the RC 2 build available to download now from System Settings > General > Software Update.
The download is simply labeled as “macOS Ventura 13.0”, which is typical with how Apple issues release candidates.
macOS Ventura Release Date is October 24
MacOS Ventura will be available to the public on October 24, according to Apple.
If you’re impatient to wait until Monday, you can always choose to install macOS Ventura public beta on a Mac and get access to the release candidate builds now. You will need to make sure that your Mac is compatible with macOS Ventura, however.
The most recent stable public version of MacOS available to all users is macOS Monterey 12.6.
