WWDC wrapped up yesterday, and Apple has announced the new version of all its software, including macOS. While expectations were mixed, macOS 15 Sequoia has introduced some great features, including iPhone screen mirroring, AI-powered Siri, and a password app. Considering these features, you might want to install and test the update before anyone else. If you are one of those individuals, we will help you install macOS 15 Sequoia on your MacBook.

Things to Consider: Supported Macs

Before we get started, you should keep a few things in mind. Firstly, since this is a developer beta update, there are bound to be bugs and issues. Some functions might not work as expected, and your MacBook’s battery life may drain faster. Although Apple will iron out the bugs over time, we recommend installing the update on your secondary device for now.

In terms of support, macOS 15 is compatible with any:

  • 2019 iMac or later
  • 2020 MacBook Air or later
  • 2020 MacBook Pro or later
  • 2022 Mac Studio or later
  • 2020 Mac Mini or later

Moreover, we highly recommend backing up all your data using Time Machine before installing the update. We also encountered a few hiccups while installing the update, so this step is crucial.
