Apple has restarted the beta cycle once again, with the release of the first developer beta of macOS Ventura 13.4 for testers to try out.
The new first beta follows after the release of macOS Ventura 13.3, which was issued to the public on March 27. That release included 31 new emoji, rich text previews for Mastodon in Messages, and HomeKit architecture changes.
At this early stage, it is unclear what is new in this beta generation, but details will surface as more testers discover any additions.
AppleInsider and Apple strongly suggest users don’t install beta operating systems or other beta software on “mission-critical” or primary devices, as there is the small chance of issues that could result in the loss of data. Testers should instead use secondary or non-essential hardware and ensure they have sufficient backups of their critical data at all times.
