Download macOS Ventura: How it works

As part of WWDC 2022, Apple released the first developer beta of macOS Ventura for download. Registered developers download the beta configuration profile to their Mac from the Apple website. After installing the profile, you should immediately open the update window, through which the trial version of macOS Ventura will be downloaded and installed. Developer access is subject to a fee.

macOS Ventura: Download the public beta – when is it possible?

So far, only the first developer beta is available for download – the public beta of macOS Ventura is still a long way off. Apple announced July as the public beta release date for the new Mac update. Once Apple makes the public beta available for download, download it from beta.apple.com.

Although the trial versions of Apple are quite stable, productive use is not recommended. However, anyone who wants to try out the new functions beforehand can download the trial version for free from July.

Installing macOS Ventura on a Mac: How does downgrading work?

It’s possible to downgrade from macOS Ventura to macOS Monterey at any time, but it’s a little more complicated than an iPhone. The easiest way to downgrade is to use a Time Machine backup. To do this, restart your Mac and hold “CMD + R” while booting until the Apple logo appears. Then select “Restore from Time Machine Backup” to go back to an earlier version of your Mac.

When is macOS Ventura released?

Apple only talks about a release in the fall and doesn’t give a specific release date. macOS Monterey was released a few weeks after iOS 15 was released last year – in late October. Therefore, his release in September or October is considered likely.
