Alongside unveiling macOS 12 Monterey with a variety of new features and changes, Apple detailed which machines the new software will be able to run it. Read on for the full list of Macs compatible with macOS Monterey.

Apple is making the first beta for macOS Monterey available to developers today, June 7, for public beta testers it’s coming in July, with the official release happening like usual in the fall.

New features include a totally redesigned Safari, Shortcuts coming to the Mac, FaceTime’s new SharePlay feature, Universal Control to seamlessly work across multiple Apple devices, the new Focus mode, Quick Notes, AirPlay to Mac, and more.

As always, it’s best to install the beta on a secondary Mac as performance and stability won’t be dialed in, especially with early builds.
