macOS 13 Name

Traditionally, the macOS version names are inspired from unique geographical locations in the United States. macOS 13 makes no exception. It has been presented as macOS Ventura, a place “where stunning surf meets lush alluvial plains”.

How To Install macOS 13

You can already try out macOS 13 if your Mac is compatible. Apple has already released the macOS 13 Developer Beta, right after WWDC 2022.

To be able to download and install macOS 13 Beta you have to enroll your device to the Apple Developer Program. For this you need to be a registered and paying Apple Developer.

The macOS 13 Beta Profile can also be installed from third-party sources. However, we don’t recommend this option.

Fact: We’ve published here a detailed step-by-step guide that shows you how to update to macOS 13 Developer Beta!
