Apple macOS 13: what we know about new features, supported devices

In a few days, WWDC 2022 will take place. The ceremony will herald the release of macOS 13Apple macOS 13, Apple’s next major software platform for the Mac, as well as the first new operating system since the company’s entire switch from Intel to its own technology. We’ve compiled a list of the most recent rumors and expectations for macOS 13 this year, including new features, release dates, and more.

Apple macOS 13 will be announced during Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, as is customary. This year’s WWDC will be a virtual event, taking place from June 6 to June 10. Apple will begin off the event with a keynote talk on June 6, and it’s during this keynote that we’ll get our first glimpse at macOS 13, as well as iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16.

As of now, internally, Apple macOS 13 is called Rome, but it doesn’t mean much for us outsiders. Over these past years, Apple has been naming its Mac operating systems with California parks. In December, Parker Ortolani wrote about why the company is likely to call macOS 13 Mammoth:

We previously reported in June [2021] on Apple owning the trademark for “Mammoth.” In that same report, we speculated that Apple was planning to use the name “Monterey” for this year’s version of its Mac operating system and that turned out to be true. So with Mammoth being the seemingly last remaining trademark of a location in California, it’s highly likely that it is in the running for macOS 13.

Apple macOS 13 supported devices

As Apple finished its two year-transition from Intel to its own chips, it’s likely that more Intel Macs will lose support for macOS 13.

Most likely, Macs from 2013, 2014, and 2015 could be ripped off. As of now, here are the Macs that currently support macOS 12 Monterey:

  • 2015 and later MacBook
  • Early 2015 and later MacBook Air
  • Early 2015 and later MacBook Pro
  • Late 2014 and later Mac mini
  • Late 2015 and later iMac
  • 2017 and later iMac Pro
  • Late 2013 and later Mac Pro
  • 2022 Mac Studio

New features

macOS 13 will likely focus more than ever on Apple Silicon Macs. With deeper integration between hardware and software, Apple macOS 13 could see notifications revamped, widgets anywhere on the home screen, and improvements for Universal Control.
