Apple has started rolling out macOS Ventura 13.2 to the public with support for Security Keys for Apple ID, bug fixes, and security improvements.
This update comes a month and ten days after the release of macOS Ventura 13.1 which featured Advanced Data Protection for iCloud, a new Freeform App, and more. Apple keeps refining the software experience with every macOS update whilst also adding new security features. According to the Security Content page of macOS Ventura 13.2, Apple has patched more than 20 Security Vulnerabilities including the ones where apps could gain unauthorized access to user-sensitive data and execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.
According to Apple, macOS Ventura 13.2 includes the following features and changes:
- Security Keys for Apple ID allow users to strengthen the security of their account by requiring a physical security key to sign in
- Fixes an issue in Freeform where some drawing strokes created with Apple Pencil or your finger may not appear on shared boards
- Fixes an issue where VoiceOver may stop offering audio feedback while you are typing
In addition to macOS Ventura 13.2, Apple has also released macOS Big Sur 11.7.3 and macOS Monterey 12.6.3 with security improvements for users running older versions of macOS on their Mac.
