macOS Ventura RC Problems

Before you update check the issues reported so far. If you already installed the macOs 13 Release Candidate don’t hesitate to report bugs. We’ll try to replicate, provide troubleshooting options and report them to Apple:

  • 1. Continuity camera not working. Apps like FaceTime display an error message that there is no camera detected.
    Workaround: Attach an external usb camera if available, it will enable the continuity camera and you can select iPhone as camera and mic.
  • 2. Stage Manager greyed out in Settings.
    Fix: Turn On ‘Displays have separate Spaces’ in Settings -> Desktop & Dock.
  • 3. USB hubs not working properly. Only charging works without data transfer.
    Fix: Apparently this is a new macOS 13 feature that requires a special permission for MacBooks running Apple’ silicon. Go to System Settings -> Security and Privacy -> Security and approve the USB hub.
  • 4. Save window closes in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder when using the arrow keys. Reported by MrEnglish.
    Fix: – (Adobe might have to update its software to become compatible with macOS Ventura).
  • 5. USB-C display not working on M1 Mac and possibly other models.
    Fact: A Reddit user confirms that the Gigabyte M32U USB-C display is working fine with M1 Air at at 4k 144hz. What about yours?
  • 6. Third-party preference panels won’t display in the new System Settings app. Panel is blank when clicked. Reported for SteerMouse and Backblaze. Are you experiencing the same?
  • 7. WiFi dropping out when Continuity camera feature is used with FaceTime and Microsoft Teams.
