Apple’s keynote at WWDC 2022 is over and we’ve seen previews of iOS 16, watchOS 9 and more, with public betas expected to arrive in July.
However, with iPadOS 16 finally bringing support for external displays and iOS 16 bringing fully customizable lock screens, macOS Ventura has brought the best of both worlds in features.
With that in mind, we’ve checked out which Macs will work with Ventura when it launches in late 2022.
Which Macs support Ventura?
Apple confirmed in the keynote that macOS 13 Ventura is coming ‘this fall’, with a public beta in July where you can try out the update ahead of release for everyone.
While each release has required more Macs to be deprecated with the upgrade to the latest macOS update, Ventura appears to be pushing a lot harder this year, with Macs as recent as 2018 being allowed to upgrade. This is a significant change from macOS Monterey, which could work on Macs as early as 2015.
Ventura will only be accessible for Macs released after 2017, which includes:
What about people using Macs from 2016 and earlier?
Those of you who are still using your Mac from 2016 or older will be left out of the update coming in late 2022, but you will still be able to use your Mac normally.
However, you may notice that some of your favorite apps are starting to stop supporting the older macOS operating system. You may not notice a change right away, but third-party apps will likely require you to upgrade to Ventura if you want to use them.
You may also be at greater risk of facing a security breach. Hackers have had more time to figure out how to open older hardware and software, using workarounds that are likely fixed in newer updates.
