You can easily switch from the current app to a background app that appears on the side. You can also “live” in this view without interrupting closing or interrupting your current work. This feature makes switching between apps very easy and neat on the macOS Ventura.


Apple is planning to replace passwords with Passkeys. Passkeys are unique digital keys that are saved on your Apple devices. With Passkeys set up, you can securely sign in to your device through Touch ID or Face ID.

Passkeys will work across all your apps and website because it’ll sync between your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV through iCloud Keychain. Apple expects more companies to work with them to bring Passkeys to more apps. This might be the end of the password era for Apple devices.

Spotlight has gotten a new design and is now smarter. It now has a Quick Look feature that allows you to preview files. Live Text now also allows you to use Spotlight to search for texts in a photo. You can also now easily find images in your library by location, scenes, objects, or people.

Metal 3

Gamers will find the new Metal 3 with MetalFX Upscaling very useful. The MetalFX Upscaling allows developers to render difficult scenes at a lower resolution and then apply resolution upscaling with temporal anti-aliasing. Capcom’s Resident Evil Village is among the first games to support it.

And lastly, macOS Ventura also has support for iCloud Shared Photo Library. This feature allows up to six persons to create and use a separate photo library. All six users have equal access to the library.

Those who are members of Apple’s Developer Program can get the developer beta of macOS Ventura now. The public beta is expected to be available for Mac users by next month while the final macOS Ventura software is expected to be available by September through October.
