Apple showcased its upcoming macOS 13. This happened as part of the annual WWDC conference.
The new OS for Mac is called Ventura, a name that matches the leaks and is given in honor of the beautiful location in California. Like last year, the system hasn’t changed much; a complete redesign of macOS was taken over by an earlier version of Big Sur. Now Apple is just polishing macOS and fixing bugs.
However, there is something new:
- the new Stage Manager mode will help you quickly find the desired window among dozens of open
- the updated Spotlight will allow you to use Luve Text directly in the search, as well as quickly view files, search results are displayed in a separate window
- Passkeys – synchronized keys for applications, not stored on the Apple server
- Macs with Silicon M chips are now better suited for gaming thanks to Metal 3 technology
- Continuity: Handoff comes to FaceTime: an active call can be easily “transferred” between your Apple devices, and the iPhone camera can be used as a webcam for Mac; and during a call, you can show your desktop in parallel with the image of your face (use two cameras at once). All of these features support FaceTime, Zoom, and Teams.
At WWDC, Apple usually only announces its updates, and a full release for all users will take place this fall. Most likely, we should expect some changes in the system: judging by the experience of past years, Apple makes changes before the official release and sometimes removes or postpones the promised features. You can try macOS 13 soon – for this you will need to download a special profile, and then update as usual. Don’t forget that the first beta versions are often very unstable and full of bugs, so we do not recommend installing them on the main working device.
The site will soon have a full review of the first beta version of macOS 13 with screenshots – stay tuned.
