Lot of people waiting for this MacOS 13.3 update also, now you have it to install.

Problems mentioned that this might help with are Universal Control and Handoff, Home directory, and Home app. Try it and see.
I am already on 13.4 Beta 1 but have this annoying bug regarding the apple watch that is fixed in 13.3.1. Is there anything i can do to get this update?

Will the fix likely be incorporated into beta 2?
