Apple today seeded the second beta of macOS Ventura 13.3 to its public beta testing group, letting the general public test out the features ahead of the software's release. The public beta comes two weeks after Apple provided the first public beta.

Public beta testers can download the macOS 13.3 Ventura update from the Software Update section of the System Preferences app after installing the proper profile from Apple's beta software website.

As with iOS 16.4, macOS Ventura 13.3 adds new emoji characters that include shaking head, pink heart, blue heart, gray heart, donkey, moose, black bird, goose, wing, jellyfish, hyacinth, pea pod, ginger, fan, comb, flute, maracas, left hand, and right hand.

The update supports updating to the new HomeKit architecture that Apple has reintroduced after the update was pulled from iOS 16.2. The Messages app also offers content previews for shared Mastodon links, and there are new options in Shortcuts for creating workflows that include Siri notification announcements.

Apple says that macOS Ventura 13.3 will be released in the spring, a timeline that ranges from March 20 to June 20.

Hopefully smb filesharing will be stable again when I make use of the ‘needed’ moose emoji… (am I just getting old or are priorities getting lost in too many places theese days!?)

And... wifi won't connect. Tried every solution. Took the MacBook Pro to the Apple Store where they determined it wasn't hardware, but won't touch it since it's running this (developer) beta. Wiped the computer, reinstalled and migrated. No joy. Apparently a well documented issue...

sFTP does work - enable General>Sharing>Remote Login and that turns on sFTP. utterly hidden setting. NFS should also work if you are desperate to move files around and know how to set that up.

Not holding my breath that it fixes the Apple Mail issue I reported 14 months ago and for which I've been promised that engineers are working on it. Been promised an update from support for two weeks now.
