Release of macOS Monterey: At what time does the download start?

Apple still owes us the final version of macOS Monterey - version 12.0 of the Mac system. This will finally take place today. But at what time can we lie in wait to then start the download? We'll tell you.

Update from October 25, 2021: Since the introduction of the new MacBook Pros, we have known that Apple would like to officially release macOS Monterey this Monday. But when is the free download actually possible? Experience has shown that we can count on it in the early evening. If things go according to plan and there are no problems, then it should start around 7 p.m. our time . In Cupertino, California, it will be 10 a.m. - Apple's usual time for software updates to be released.

Worth mentioning: The first copies of the new MacBook Pro will be available to customers one day later, from October 26th. The new update to macOS 12 will be compatible with numerous Macs, some of which were released in 2013. You can read more about this in this article.

Original article:

Mac users still have to be patient, because currently there are only the new system versions for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV - specifically iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8 and tvOS 15. Who at the last Apple event on an appointment for macOS Monterey hoped they were disappointed.

macOS Monterey Beta 7: Another step towards release

But now Apple is at least releasing the 7th developer version and the associated public beta of macOS 12 (source: Apple). So the work is progressing, but has not yet been completed because it is not yet a so-called "release candidate". Otherwise a publication could be expected in a few days. But when is macOS Monterey coming?

We can only speculate about that. The publication times of the predecessors unfortunately only provide limited information, let's take a look:

macOS 11: November 12, 2020 macOS 10.15: October 7, 2020 macOS 10.14: September 24, 2018 macOS 10.13: September 25, 2017 macOS 10.12: September 20, 2016

In recent years, the publication actually took place at the end of September, but not in 2020 and 2019. In the end, we even had to wait until November. However, we suspect: In the course of another predicted Apple event, the manufacturer should specify a release date. Most recently, October was discussed for this.

What can we look forward to in macOS Monterey? In the video there is the answer:

IPad users are also longingly waiting for macOS 12

That is how long iPad users have to wait for "Universal Control" aka "Seamless Control". For the joint control of Mac and iPad with a keyboard and mouse (trackpad) you need not only iPadOS 15 but also the final version of macOS Monterey. So far nobody has been able to test this in public because "Universal Control" was still missing in all betas.
