After several beta builds, Apple announced at an Unleashed event that the next version of its operating system, macOS Monterey, will be available as an update on Monday, October 25.

The new operating system includes several improvements to FaceTime, including support for spatial audio.

It also has other great features like the ability to use SharePlay to listen to music and watch videos with friends.

One of the biggest changes is the overall control. It enables users to easily switch between Mac and iPad. This feature also supports seamless file transfer between multiple devices and typing from the MacBook keyboard from the iPad.

The company announced in a press release about the new redesigned MacBook Pro that SharePlay and comprehensive control features will be launched later this fall.

The company has also made extensive changes to its Safari web browser for macOS Monterey. Major changes include the tab bar and other important features.

Other improvements include Real-time Text, a feature similar to Google Lens that lets you select text in photos and add quick notes.

macOS Monterey also received updates that first appeared in iOS 15, including focus mode and support for sharing with you who can track shared content in the messaging app.

Apple brought two important iOS features to your Mac: Shortcuts and AirPlay support. A Mac with macOS Monterey can use its hardware as AirPlay speakers.

Apple introduces macOS Monterey

macOS Monterey is designed to take full advantage of the powerful features of the M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, with great performance, professional features, and long battery life.

The device is built with macOS Monterey on the company's processor and can be instantly woken from sleep. The entire system is fast and responsive.

Development technologies such as Metal allow applications to take full advantage of the new chip. The improved Core ML also uses a neural engine that enables machine learning models to run faster.

It uses workload data on the M1 Pro to improve the way macOS Monterey maps multithreaded tasks to processor cores for maximum performance. And advanced power management functions can intelligently divide tasks between power and efficiency cores to improve speed and battery life.

The combination of macOS Monterey and M1, M1 Pro, or M1 Max also provides industry-leading security protection, including hardware-verified secure boots, runtime anti-exploit technology, and built-in rapid file encryption.

And all Apple apps are optimized for Mac devices. More than 10,000 generic apps and plugins are available. Existing Mac apps that haven't been updated to Universal can work seamlessly with Apple's Rosetta 2 technology. Users can also run iPhone and iPad apps directly from their Mac, which opens a huge new world of possibilities.

Devices that support macOS Monterey:

  •     iMac (late 2015 onwards).
  •     iMac Pro (2017 and newer).
  •     Mac Pro (late 2013 models and later).
  •     Mac mini (late 2014 and newer).
  •     MacBook Pro (early 2015 onwards).
  •     MacBook Air (early 2015 onwards).
  •     Mac Pro (Early 2016 and later).
