Apple will be releasing their new macOS, Monterey (v12.0) on Monday October 25, 2021. Once again, as with all past macOS releases, please DO NOT UPGRADE to this version at this time. ITS needs additional time to properly test this new OS. Unlike the long wait for the previous macOS (Big Sur) the upgrade path to macOS Monterey should be much quicker especially for those who are already running macOS Big Sur (v11.6).
