Apple launches MacOS Ventura

Apple has launched MacOS Ventura, the latest version of its computer operating system, as a free upgrade to users with supported devices.

The update adds support for Apple’s continuity features, such as Continuity Camera and Handoff for FaceTime.

Continuity Camera lets mac users use their iPhone’s camera as their computer’s webcam.

“When iPhone is nearby, Mac can automatically recognise and use the camera on iPhone to unlock new capabilities that were never possible before on a webcam, and even works wirelessly for greater flexibility,” Apple said.

Continuity Camera has a Desk View mode that leverages the user’s iPhone’s ultrawide camera to simultaneously provide a view of the user’s face and an overhead of their desk.

Handoff for FaceTime lets Apple users switch seamlessly between devices while on a call.

MacOS Ventura also adds support for the same Stage Manager feature that is available with iPadOS 16.

The Apple Mail app has also received several updates, including changes to the search function and features enhancing mail sending.

Mail’s new Undo Send feature lets you cancel mistakenly sent emails, and Schedule Send lets you complete an email in advance and then set a time and date for it to be sent.

Searching in Apple Mail will ignore typos and suggest recently shared files. The app will also recommend a follow-up if you haven’t received feedback on certain emails.

Apple’s Messages app received similar updates, adding the ability to edit or undo a recently sent message.
