What new features does macOS Ventura include?
Some of the highlight features of macOS Ventura include:
- Passkeys – Apple’s take on the latest industry standards to help users move towards a password-less future.
- Stage Manager – A new way for users to manage their desktop and active applications to help promote focus and productivity.
- Rapid Security Response – Apple’s new mechanism for delivering critical security updates separately from functionality updates and bug fixes – most importantly not requiring a restart of a device to apply the update.
- Shared Tab Groups – Users can easily share websites with others, building a collaborative list of bookmarks on a shared start page.
- Platform Single Sign-On – Better native tools for integrating with SSO providers for user provisioning, leveraging single sign-on, and password management.
- Continuity Camera – Greater in-built camera functionality for video calls.
- Lockdown Mode – A new heavily restricted mode that can be switched on for users that are concerned they may be targeted by sophisticated cyber-attacks.
Which are the best features for businesses?
In Safari, there’s a new Shared Tab Groups feature so users can easily share websites with others, building a collaborative list of bookmarks on a shared start page. Messages and FaceTime calls can be started right from Safari too, which is useful for project research, event planning, and more.
Apple is planning to make Safari safer through Passkeys, a next-generation credential that replaces the password. Passkeys are far more secure than passwords as they stay on devices and are never on a web server. Passkeys are easy to use, with sign-ins authenticated through Touch ID or Face ID, and they sync across devices through iCloud Keychain and can be used on non-Apple devices with iPhone authentication.
What are moof IT doing to prepare their clients?
As with all new OSs, moof IT is putting macOS Ventura through strenuous internal testing to ensure it’s stable and compatible with the most used core applications and services. Once this has passed the first round of testing, they’ll move on to more targeted testing with their client’s applications and services to ensure everything still functions as expected.
The early testing so far is looking very promising, and Ventura is in a good place, there are, however, still a few critical snags they’re actively monitoring and resolving. Moof IT anticipate moving this to pilot testing within their client’s environments from the end of November.
