macOS 13 Ventura


macOS Ventura: Release date

Apple discussed the features coming to the next version of macOS during the WWDC 2022 keynote on June 6 at 10 a.m. PT. The software will not be released to the public until much later in the year, most likely it will arrive in late October 2022. In 2021, macOS Monterey arrived on Monday, October 25, so expect a similar time frame for macOS 13.

Apple has conformed that the following Macs are supported by macOS Ventura:

  • MacBook models from 2017 or later
  • MacBook Air models from 2018 or later
  • MacBook Pro models from 2017 or later
  • Mac mini models from 2018 or later
  • iMac models from 2017 or later
  • iMac Pro (all models)
  • Mac Pro models from 2019 or later
  • Mac Studio (all models)

This means the following Macs, that were previously supported by Monterey, have now fallen off the list:

  • iMac (models from 2015)
  • MacBook Air (models from 2015 and 2017 models)
  • MacBook Pro (2015 and 2016 models)
  • Mac mini (2014 models)
  • Mac Pro (2013 model – cylinder/trash can)
  • MacBook (2016 model)

The 2014 Mac mini was sold until 2018, the ‘trash can’ Mac Pro until 2019, and the 2017 MacBook Air was sold until July 2019. We had thought that for Apple wouldn’t remove those Macs from the supported list, since people might have purchased the model just such a short time ago. At least they will still be supported by macOS Monterey for at least two more macOS generations.
