Release of macOS Monterey 12.5, available on MacBook M2

macOS Monterey 12.5

Apple has just released the fourth beta edition of macOS Monterey 12.5. Only developers can therefore install it for the moment; it is not not recommended to download it on your everyday machine at the risk of encountering serious bugs. Apple developer accounts are chargeable, and allow applications to be offered on the App Store.

According to official information provided by Apple, macOS Monterey 12.5 (beta 4) only comes with no release notes. This means that there is potentially no additional functionality on the menu, but technical issues or security vulnerabilities may have been resolved.


macOS Monterey version 12.5 (beta 4) can be installed on the following devices:

  • iMacs released in late 2015 and newer
  • the 2017 iMac Pro
  • MacBook Airs released in early 2015 and newer (including the MacBook Air M2 that arrived a few days ago)
  • MacBook Pro released in early 2015 and more recent (including the MacBook Pro M2 also recently unveiled)
  • 2013 and 2019 Mac Pros
  • Mac minis released in late 2014 and newer
  • the “classic” MacBooks of 2016 and 2017

As this is a beta version, the update requires having downloaded a “profile” specific. To get it, you can go to this site which also offers advanced versions of iOS 16 by opening the link on your iPhone via Safari.

Ventura at the end of the runway

It is not yet known when macOS Monterey 12.5 will be offered to the general public in final version, but it’s probably only a matter of a few weeks maximum. Then it will be up to macOS Ventura to become the benchmark for all the latest Macs. This version unveiled at the Worldwide Developer Conference 2020 brings serious improvements to computers, such as the Continuity of the camera or the possibility of working with several people with Safari.

Apple has announced that macOS Ventura will be released “this fall”; we therefore expect it at the same time as the keynote which could also present the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. With this, the manufacturer could also release a new generation Apple TV.
