Washington (US), June 7: Apple introduced macOS Ventura, which will be available for Mac computers in the fall, during WWDC on Monday. Ventura is a modest upgrade that mostly keeps the aesthetic design of recent macOS editions.

The Stage Manager is the most noteworthy new feature, according to GSM Arena. It is a Mission Control upgrade that can be enabled from the Command Center (and can be disabled if you choose to). Unlike Mission Control, which displays all open programmes on the screen, Stage Manager keeps your current app in focus while grouping the others to the side by category. You may basically "live" in this view while working on your existing app.

When you click an app from the side, it comes into focus, allowing you to switch between them quickly.

Furthermore, you may use your iPhone as a webcam with a Continuity Camera. The Mac recognises the iPhone and switches to its cameras instead of the built-in FaceTime camera.


Continuity Camera, which uses the iPhone's ultrawide camera to show a person's face as well as an overhead view of the desk, enables Desk View. Other options include Center Stage, Portrait mode, and Studio Light.

Later this year, Apple plans to release specific mounting accessories. When you're close enough, you can initiate a call on your phone and easily transfer it to your Mac.
