7 things you didn’t know you could do with macOS 13 Ventura


When it was first announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, macOS 13 Ventura was mainly known for Stage Manager, PassCodes, Continuity Camera, and a few other new top-line features. 

Having been using beta versions for our macOS 13 Ventura preview for nearly two months, I’ve had the chance to uncover some lesser-known macOS 13 Ventura features in this most impressive new software update, set to arrive for the public sometime this fall. Each of these features should find a large audience in the coming months. 

1. Faster security updates

The days when Macs weren’t susceptible to viruses and malware are long over. Because of this, iMore has always recommended ensuring the latest macOS version is installed on your computer. However, with macOS 13 Ventura, Apple has taken the guesswork out of this process by introducing “security improvements” that get applied automatically between regular updates — assuming you’re connected to the internet. Better still, these updates won’t require pesky restarts. 

While I see no sane reason to do so, you can, if you wish, disable these automatic security improvements and switch to a manual process.
