During the last keynote in early June, Apple announced the arrival of macOS Ventura for Mac next fall. Throughout the summer, the software will be in the beta-testing phase. A first beta version is already available today. Unfortunately, not all Mac computers will be able to perform the update, obviously due to technical limitations. Several new features of the OS will be particularly resource-intensive, including the Stage Manager feature, which improves the management of active app windows.

But users of old Macs can still get up to speed in advance, by installing one of the two new wallpapers exclusive to the OS. These are the ones in place by default. They represent, in an abstract style, the flower of the California poppy, one of the symbols of the region of the county of Ventura, coastal city of California. They actually display the same image, available in two versions, one light, the other dark, to match the two corresponding macOS display modes, light and dark.
