Installation

Note that macOS Ventura is currently a developer beta which means that it may have stability issues and other bugs.

macOS Ventura can be installed by developers who have registered with Apple Developer Center. A beta disk utility will be available from the Download Center which can be used to enroll a Mac in Apple’s beta program. This will allow the Mac to receive the developer beta updates. Note that Apple Developer Center membership costs $99/year. You can find ways to enroll your Mac into Apple’s developer beta program for free, but we do not recommend it.

If you are an enthusiast but not a developer, we suggest that you wait for the public beta. macOS Ventura will be available as a public beta from next month. Apple’s public beta software program is free for all users, and the releases are generally more stable than developer beta updates.
