How to Get Latest Mac OS 12 Monterey

How to Get Latest Mac OS: The most recent version of macOS is now available.

Mac users can now download macOS 12 Monterey, which includes numerous enhancements and upgrades.

When macOS 12 Monterey was revealed in June during the WWDC 2021 keynote, it wasn’t as significant an update as its predecessor, macOS 11 Big Sur, but that doesn’t mean the new OS update isn’t worthwhile.

Even during the public beta phase, there was a lot of interest in how to download macOS 12 Monterey, and now that it’s out in the wild, you can download the much more stable version of Apple’s latest operating system on compatible machines without having to worry about a slew of bugs to find and report that could crash your MacBook and Mac devices.

 Of course, this is still possible during the first few weeks after macOS 12 Monterey is launched, so if stability is important to you, you might want to wait a few weeks for further bug patches to go out.

Unlike the previous Developer Preview of macOS 12 Monterey, which required enrollment in the Apple Developer Program (which costs $99, £69, AU$140), the public beta for macOS 12 Monterey, as well as the full release of the OS, was absolutely free.

Before installing macOS 12 Monterey, make a backup of your Mac.

We still recommend backing up your files on your Mac whenever you upgrade your operating system, even if it’s a full release and not a beta version, so that if something goes wrong, you can easily restore your machine to its former functional condition.

Make sure your Mac is backed up before downloading and installing macOS 12 Monterey.
