At WWDC 2022, macOS Ventura was released alongside iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and watchOS 9, and it includes a redesigned Settings app, Stage Manager, FaceTime hand-off, and other new features. You may also install the macOS 13 Ventura beta on your Mac without any problems if you have an Apple developer account. You are not completely out of lucks if you don’t have a developer account. Yes, you read that correctly. Without a developer account, you can also download and install macOS 13 Ventura beta. In this step-by-step instruction, I’ll lead you through the entire process.
Without a Developer Account, Install macOS 13 Ventura Beta (2022)
Before you install macOS 13 Beta, make a backup of your data.
Because macOS 13 is still a work in progress and will go through extensive beta testing before its final release in the fall, expect a slew of faults and glitches. Pre-release software is prone to issues like sudden battery drain, overheating, and erratic rebooting. Not to add, if you don’t carefully follow the instructions, you risk bricking your device and losing your data. As an result, we recommend backing up your Mac device before proceeding.
There are several options for backing up your personal data and information on Mac devices.
Time Machine is an great way to back up your Mac.
You can back up your apps, images, music, documents, and other personal data automatically with Time Machine, macOS’ built-in backup function.
- Connect an external storages device to your Mac, such as a USB or Thunderbolt device.
- Next, go to System Preferences -> Time Machine from the Apple menu in the top-left corner of the screen.
- Select “Backup Disk” from the drop-down menu.
- Click the “Use Disk” option after selecting the name of your disk. That concludes our discussion. Your Mac device will now be backed up by Time Machine.
ICloud Drive can back up your desktop and document files.
You may use iCloud Drive to store your desktop and document files on macOS. This option should be chosen not just to offer an extra degree of protection against data loss, but also to make files accessible across devices.
- To begin, select “System Preferences” from the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of the screen.
- Now, in the upper-right corner of the window, click the Apple ID icon.
- Next, under the left sidebar, click “iCloud.”
- Finally, make sure the iCloud Drive checkbox is turned on. Then, next to iCloud Drive, click the “Options” icon that appears.
- To conclude, check the box next to Desktop & Documents Folders and click “Done.”
Check to see if your Mac device is compatible with macOS 13.
If you were hoping that earlier Macs, such as the MacBook Air 2017, would support macOS 13 Ventura, you’ll be sad to learn that they won’t. As a result, make sure to check if your device supports macOS Ventura.
Ventura Developer Beta Profile for macOS 13 is available for download.
- Open Safari and navigate to betaprofiles.com.
- Scroll down to the macOS Beta Profile section and find “Install Profile” from the drop-down menu.
- Double-click the macOS 13 beta DMG profile to open it after your browser has downloaded it.
- To open the installer, double-click the macOSDeveloperBetaAccessUtility.pkg file in the pop-up window. To finish the installation, follow the on-screen directions.

- Restart your Mac (Apple menu -> Restart) if the macOS 13 developer beta software does not display in the Updates list. After that, go to the Mac App Store and click the Updates tab.
- The length of time it takes for the macOS developer beta update to download is totally dependent on the file size and your Wi-Fi connection.
