macOS 13 Ventura developer beta is out for testing, and we have installed it on our devices and are running it through its paces. We have already discovered tons of features that Apple didn’t have the time to announce on the stage. One of the features that caught our eyes is the ability to use auto-rotating wallpapers. You can select a folder full of photos or an album in the Photos app, and macOS Ventura will automatically cycle through those photos. Here is how you can use auto-rotate wallpapers in macOS 13 Ventura.
