macOS Ventura is coming in its full glory in the fall, but the public beta version has already created waves of approval among Mac users. With this new OS, Apple wishes to transform how Macs are used and enhance your experience. Unfortunately, as with all OS beta versions, it is not perfect, and some kinks still need to be ironed out. For example, users who installed the public beta version of Ventura have complained of their system running slow after the update or facing Wi-Fi problems. Fortunately, you can quickly fix Wi-Fi problems on Ventura and speed up your device. Let your device fully update after upgrading to Ventura and leave it alone for a few hours or an entire day. Most of the issues will be resolved.
Some exciting features will compel you to upgrade your system or join the Apple ecosystem.
The Continuity Camera is posed to change the way you operate your MacBook. Thanks to this feature, you can use your iPhone as a webcam for your Mac. Moreover, Continuity Camera supports exciting features like the Center Stage feature and Studio Light feature. These features can enhance your FaceTime sessions and be used with other video conferencing applications.
Stage Manager supports iPads and Macs. It promises to take your productivity to the next level as it organizes windows on your device and groups them for your convenience. You can switch to the Stage Manager and locate the specific app when you wish to see a particular application. Similar to tab groups on Safari, the feature allows users to create bespoke groups of applications. In addition, the active app windows are brought to the center of the screen, so you don’t get distracted by the other running apps.
Improvements are made to Spotlight Search so users can easily search for images that are hidden or located inside other apps like Notes or Messages. Also, the Live Text feature integration enables users to search for text within pictures. User experience is further enhanced as Spotlight Search is made much more robust and intuitive than ever. You can perform tasks like adding an alarm or starting a timer directly from here.
The Apple ecosystem is well-known for its easy transitions where you can start an activity on one device and continue it on another. However, this wasn’t a possibility with FaceTime sessions. Luckily, Ventura solves this problem with FaceTime Handoff.
So, if you get a FaceTime call on your Mac and you are near your iPad or iPhone, you can continue the session by transferring the call to any one of those devices. What’s more, you can continue the call without any interruption.
Moreover, Live Caption support is available for FaceTime calls to ensure transcription of video calls isn’t a hassle anymore.
Desk View is an extension of the Continuity Camera feature, but it should be mentioned separately. Due to this feature, iPhones with a wide-angle view can generate an overhead shot of the desk the users are working on while showing their faces. The feature is ideal for online content creators and those shooting a video tutorial explaining how their company’s products work.
Separate the Subject from the Background
Macs have become much more intuitive with macOS Ventura. While several features are added to the Photos application, one that stands out is the ability to separate the subject in Quick Look from the image’s background. So, you can lift the photo’s subject, copy it to the clipboard, and paste it anywhere.
While the feature is still in beta, it works flawlessly. To copy the photo’s subject in Quick Look, you must open the picture > right-click and choose Copy Subject > notice the white highlights around the subject and then paste the subject anywhere you wish.
Mail App Enhancements
The in-built Mail application has been overhauled with macOS Ventura, showing Apple’s seriousness in making the app better than its competitors. With the new OS update, you can unsend an email within ten seconds by clicking on the Undo Send option. The option will appear in the screen’s bottom-left corner after you have sent the email. Moreover, you can set reminders to reply to an email at a later date and time. You can even schedule emails to be sent later.
For scheduling emails, you must click on Compose inside the app > click the arrow button > and schedule when to send the email.
If you wish to set a reminder, click Send later and choose the date and time. Then, click Schedule.
The Bottom Line
You should not dare miss out on making the most of these exciting features. So, check the compatibility of your Mac model and upgrade to Ventura immediately. Ensure there’s enough storage space for downloading the file.
