  • Big Sur and Monterey are out for Apple

    Posted on October 25th, 2021 at 18:26 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The unofficial Apple security twitter account posted that there are updates for Big Sur 11.6.1 (if you want to stay on Big Sur) or macOS Monterey 12.0.1.

    When you go to software updates, you may see “Upgrade now” and Monterey offered up to you. Alternatively is you want to stick with Big Sur, click on the More Info in the middle there

    And you can opt to install that.

    Should you install Monterey at this time?  Eh, it’s like Windows 10 and their feature releases. Unless you have a backup and an alternative computer, day one is not a good time to install new operating systems. So I recommend you stay on Big Sur at this time. I’ll let you know when it feels right to be upgrading to Monterey.

    P.S. While this is a valuable account to follow if you are into twitter – I don’t believe the https://twitter.com/ApplSec twitter account is “officially” Apple. It’s still a valuable account to follow as it’s extremely up to date on it’s information, but just be aware it’s not an official communication from Apple.
