Apple has begun to roll out macOS Ventura to its Mac lineup. The new operating system includes a Stage Manager, Live Captions for all audio content, Live Text in movies, and a Message edit option. It also enhances the possibilities of the platform.

Apple reports that the new macOS Ventura for internal PCs is now available. Mac users all throughout the world, including India, can now download the macOS Ventura update. Those interested in checking out the update can do so by navigating to the Apple menu in the upper left corner and then selecting System Preferences. They must now select the Software Update option.


The Mail app on macOS Ventura can now undo email sends. They can also schedule a send through the Mail app. Remind Me and Follow Up are also included in the operating system, which will help users keep track of their emails more effectively.

Passkeys will be another feature offered on Apple Mac devices. Passkeys are a more secure way to sign in than passwords. Users can also share images and videos with up to five family members in a separate repository.

The Stage Manager, a key feature of macOS Ventura, helps to organize programs and windows automatically. Users can use Stage Manager to position their active app in the center of the screen and other open apps to the left. They will also be able to connect apps to make a suite.

Continuity Camera is a new feature in macOS. When brought close to the Mac, the iPhone can be utilized as a webcam. The iPhone must be placed in a stand that has been officially sold. There is also a new Clock app for Mac, a Weather app for Mac, and a totally redesigned Settings app.

Passkeys Authentications

Passkey is the company’s application of a password removal industry standard for online authentication. Apple, Google, and Microsoft worked with the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium earlier this year to abolish passwords for cross-platform user authentication.


During its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple unveiled Passkey, its own implementation of this standard. Apple plans to implement passkeys in macOS Ventura, iOS 16, and iPadOS 16.

By removing passwords from the authentication pipeline, which can be leaked, exposed, or stolen, passkeys reduce the risk of account breaches. Furthermore, unlike passwords, passkeys are not reused across sites, which reduces the likelihood of stolen credentials affecting other accounts.

Passkeys work by generating two keys, one public and one private, which are then stored on the device. The public key is stored in the cloud and shared among devices that each have their own private key. This ensures that even if a server is compromised, the attacker does not have access to both keys.

Passkey-based authentication is now available on only a few websites, but this is expected to change as more developers include passkeys in their services. Passkeys will first be available for Macs, iPads, and iPhones.

If you use a Windows or Chrome-based PC, or an Android phone, the site will ask you to verify your identity by scanning a QR code with your iPhone. Password managers such as Dashlane have announced support for preserving passkeys if users want not to rely on iCloud backup.

Passkeys are in their early stages. The username-password combination is still used by most popular websites, so a password-free future is still a long way off.
