Apple is gearing up to launch macOS 14, or simply macOS Sonoma, the latest version of their computer software for Mac users. Set your reminders for September 26th, as macOS Sonoma releases that day.
Now, let’s dive into what Sonoma brings to the table. It’s all about giving your Mac a dash of iPhone and iPad flavor. Picture this: your desktop is adorned with nifty widgets, these mini-apps that serve up bite-sized, helpful information. If you’re big on video calls, Sonoma’s got your back with some slick features.
Think about screen sharing and the ability of the person you’re chatting with to dance around the shared screen gracefully. They’re also souping up Safari, the trusty web browser, with features like separate profiles for your bookmarks and turbocharged search capabilities.
But hold onto your hats. There’s a catch: not all Macs can hop on the Sonoma bandwagon. You’re golden if your trusty companion was born in 2018 or later. That covers specific models of MacBook, Mac Mini, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro, and the fresh-faced Mac Studio they rolled out in 2022. However, if your Mac’s been around the block a few more times than that, I’m afraid it won’t be eligible for the Sonoma upgrade.
So, circle that September 26th date on your calendar if you’re itching to give your Mac a Sonoma makeover as the macOS Sonoma releases that day. But, and it’s a big but, remember to double-check if your computer is up to the task. After all, you would want to make sure you get all the Sonoma goodness just because your Mac’s a bit long in the tooth!
