Apple removes some features from macOS Ventura


macOS Ventura is still in Beta phase. This means that features are added or removed as developers see how well each feature works. That is why right now there are two features that have been removed in this new version and that it is likely that in the near future they can be incorporated, but right now, they are not. We are talking about the function network location and support for email hiding in third-party applications.

In this new version of the macOS Ventura beta, in addition to redesigning the System Settings app, Apple has removed the network locations feature. The feature allowed users quickly switch between different sets of Wi-Fi, Ethernet and other network settings depending on the location, such as home or work. Now keep in mind that it has been detected by the developers that Apple's "networksetup" command line tool is still present. This means that a third-party developer could step in and release an app to replace the removed network locations functionality in the System Settings app.

Another function that has been removed is the support for email hiding in third-party applications. People with an iCloud+ subscription could keep their personal email address private with Hide My Email in third-party apps. Now the Apple company has removed all mention of the feature from the page. This functionality is active in iOS, so the reason why it does not work on Mac is not very well known.

As we said at the beginning, we are still in the beta phase and It is possible that these functionalities will return and continue as before. But for now they have been removed and although there are ways to have them in other ways, their thing would be for them to give us an explanation of why they have been removed.
