The latest beta releases from Apple – watchOS 9.5, tvOS 16.5, and macOS Ventura 13.4 – are now available for developers. This comes just a few weeks after the initial testing for the new versions began last month.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s new with each release.
For watchOS 9.5, the beta builds have a version number of 20T5549e. It introduces a new system for installing betas that were debuted with iOS 16.4. This system requires a user to provide their Apple ID before downloading the OS beta updates. Depending on the associated developer and user’s registration in the public beta program, the specific beta update will be shown. With this change, a regular user will no longer be able to manually install a developer beta.
The tvOS 16.5 beta 3 builds have a version number of 20L5549e. It includes Siri commands that allow you to start or stop a screen recording, as well as a dedicated Sports section in the Apple News app. This should be a welcome addition for avid sports watchers.
The third version of macOS Ventura 13.4 also has a version number of 22F5049e. It should work the same way as the other two releases, with the added system for beta installations.
It’s interesting to see the new features that Apple is bringing with these new beta releases. It’s important to note, however, that Apple has not yet announced when these updates will become available for public use.
