1. Does Your Mac Support Monterey?

The first step you have to do, of course, is to determine whether the Mac computer you are using is included in the list of devices that support macOS Monterey. On Apple's official website, it is explained that Macs that support macOS Monterey include:

  • Mac Pro Late 2013 or later

2. App Updates

The next preparation you have to do before downloading and also updating macOS Monterey is to update the applications on your Mac computer. This is to ensure that the app is available for the latest version and supports macOS Monterey once the installation is complete.

For applications in the Mac App Store, you can update very easily. You just need to enter the App Store application on a Mac computer, then access the Update section. After that, press the Update or Update All button, then wait for the download and install the latest application to finish.

Meanwhile, for third-party developer applications, you can directly access their respective websites or use the Check for Updates feature if available in each application.

3. Backup Important Data Out of Computer

The next step you have to do is to back up the data. This is so that if the macOS Monterey update process fails or experiences problems, such as boot failure, slowness, errors and other disturbances, then you have to reinstall, the data contained on your Mac has been previously secured.

4. Ensure Internet Connection, Right Time and Enough Storage

The next tip that must be considered is to make sure the internet connection that you are going to use is stable and fast. In addition, choose the right time to update.

You need to know that the size of the macOS Monterey update document is around 12GB. If you use an internet connection with a speed of 10Mbps, it will take you almost 3 hours to be able to download it. This of course will not happen if you use an internet connection with a speed of 100Mbps, where the download time it takes is only about 15 minutes.

Before you update macOS Monterey, make sure that the battery on your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro is sufficient or fully charged.
