macOS Ventura 'screensaver bug' on multimonitor systems persists in latest 13.4 stable update
Apple recently released the macOS Ventura v13.4 update that addresses some of the known bugs.
For instance, the patch resolves the issues where one could not log into Mac by using Auto Unlock with Apple Watch and Bluetooth keyboards would connect slowly after rebooting.
The recent update also fixes a VoiceOver issue with navigating to webpage landmarks and the bug where Screen Time settings got reset or didn’t sync across all the devices.
However, looking at the recent reports, it appears that some issues are still persistent.
macOS Ventura screensaver bug on multimonitor systems
Multiple macOS users (1,2,3,4,5) are still experiencing the screensaver bug even after installing the latest v13.4 stable update. Notably, the glitch was introduced with the Ventura 13.3 beta update.
Allegedly, if one has two monitors connected with their Mac, the content of the main screen will appear on the second display and that of the latter will be missing whenever screensaver starts.
The issue now only pops up when one uses third-party screensavers such as iScreensaver or Aerial. Earlier users faced this issue on applying some official screensavers as well, but luckily, this glitch doesn’t affect them anymore.
Interestingly, some are experiencing a different issue where a video displayed across a multi-monitor setup is not correctly aligned.
No matter the settings, I see a screensaver on my vertical monitor (only on the bottom half). If I set the rotation to 0 on the vertical monitor, than the screensaver only shows on that monitor.
Sadly, those who have installed the v13.5 beta update (1,2,3) are still facing this issue as well. It has been claimed that Apple has only partially fixed the problem for a 2-monitor setup.
However, if using three or more screens, the screen saver doesn’t appear on all of them like it normally should.
Users have even communicated about the problem to Apple, time and again, but they have not resolved it until yet. Those affected are now once again requesting the developers to fix this glitch.
Unfortunately, Apple has not officially responded to the matter. But we are hopeful that it will address this problem soon.
