Apple is preparing to make its next move to operating systems on June 6. On this date, the company will start the WWDC 2022 conference. During the event, the company will bring many announcements focused on developers and will officially announce iOS 16, watchOS 9, macOS 13 and more. Today, we come up with a report (via 9 to 5 Mac) shows everything we can expect from the company’s next PC operating system.
MacOS 13 will be announced soon
Although Apple did not make a clear noise around macOS 13, we are confident that WWDC 2022 will bring the new software. Apple, for the first time in years, will hold the event at its Apple Campus. Some developers will attend, but the event will also be available virtually from June 6 to June 10. The big news will come on the first day, and that’s when we expect the company to unveil macOS 13 and versions of the new operating systems.
While iOS, watchOS and tvOS are likely to be released in September, macOS 13 will have to wait until October or November.
What is the “fancy” name of macOS 13?
At the moment, the leaks indicate that macOS 13 is called Rome. However, this does not mean much as it is a simple code name and does not follow the usual nomenclature. In recent years, Apple has been naming its macOS versions with California parks. In December last year, Parker Ortolani claimed that the company would probably name the new macOS 13 Mammoth.
List of devices that will run the new operating system
The new iOS 13 is likely to reduce support for more Intel Macs. So, there is a long list of products that are going to lose support for the operating system. Mac 2013, 2014 and 2015 will lose their support. For comparison, the list of devices that support macOS 12 Monterey includes:
- 2015 and later MacBook
- Early 2015 and later MacBook Air
- Early 2015 and later MacBook Pro
- Late 2014 onwards Mac mini
- Late 2015 and later iMac
- 2017 and later iMac Pro
- Late 2013 and later Mac Pro
- 2022 Mac Studio
New features of macOS 13
macOS 13 most likely Concentrate more than ever on Apple Silicon Macs. There is deeper integration between hardware and software. The company is going to update the notifications and give the ability to add widgets anywhere on the screen. There are also more improvements to Universal Control.
According to Mark Gurman, there are some features that come with macOS 13. Highlights redesigned apps and new System Preferences that go with iOS settings. In addition, the operating system will get new features that work with the iPhone and Apple Watch.
For now, we can only wait and see what Apple has to offer for macOS 13. The company will likely continue to move towards integration between iOS and macOS.
