Apple today released Update 161 to Safari Technology Preview, an experimental browser that Apple has been rolling out since March 2016. Apple designed Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future versions of Safari.
The current “Safari Technology Preview” release is built on the Safari 16 update and includes support for features in macOS 13 Ventura, such as live text, pass keys, Web extension improvements and more.
The current Safari Technology Preview is version 16.4 and is compatible with devices running macOS 13 Ventura and macOS 12 Monterey. However, it is no longer available for macOS Big Sur.
Anyone who has downloaded the browser can get the Safari Technology Preview update through the Software Update mechanism in System Settings.
The Safari Technology Preview, which runs side-by-side with the existing Safari browser, is designed for developers, but it does not require a developer account to use.
