I simply purchased a brand new M3 MacBook Professional 16″. It has macOS Sonoma 14.3.1 (after upgrading from the pre-installed model – 14.3 I feel).
I’m an app developer and I want to assist macOS 12+ for one among my apps. So my objective is to put in macOS 12 and macOS 13, together with macOS 14, in separate partitions on the brand new Mac so I can often take a look at my app on the older OS variations.
In line with Apple’s assist web page macOS Ventura is suitable with these computer systems, Ventura is suitable with “MacBook Professional (16-inch, 2023)”.
In line with Apple’s assist web page obtain and set up macOS, I can obtain the Ventura installer from the macOS App Retailer app. The “Get” button might be enabled if suitable. Certain sufficient, after I view Ventura within the App Retailer app I see the “Get” button and it’s enabled. Clicking on the “Get” button takes me to the Settings app’s Software program Replace display screen. After a second of “Checking for updates…”, I get a dialog that states:
Replace not discovered. The requested model of macOS just isn’t accessible. Please examine in case your Mac is suitable with this software program.
Can Ventura be put in on an M3 MacBook Professional or not? In that case, how can I get round the issue of downloading the installer?
I additionally regarded inside the developer.apple.com/downloads web site and could not discover a hyperlink to Ventura.
I nonetheless have my previous 2018 Intel MacBook Professional 15″ working macOS 14.3. Following the identical steps, I’m able to obtain macOS Ventura on that Mac. However earlier than I obtain a 12GB file on that pc, I wish to know if it could even work on the brand new M3 MacBook Professional.
