WWDC June 5th, 2023.
Today, Apple unveiled macOS 14 Sonoma.
As usual, 1st beta version is available to developers with immediate effect and 1st public beta will be available in July with a final release in the fall.
With Apple now completing its move to Apple Silicon (Mac Pro now switching to M2, it was the last platform still running on Intel platform), Sonoma appears to drop official support for Intel 7th gen. Kaby Lake platforms, as expected, the iMacPro remaining the exception as per Ventura. We can expect 8th/9th gen. Amber Lake/Coffee Lake to be dropped next year and final 10th gen. Comet Lake/Ice Lake in 2025.
Minimum platform requirements are therefore:
- iMac19,x (8th gen. Coffee Lake)
- iMacPro1,1 (Skylake Xeon)
- MacBookAir8,1 (8th gen. Amber Lake)
- MacBookPro15,x (8th gen. Coffee Lake)
- Macmini8,1 (8th gen Coffee Lake)
- MacPro7,1 (Cacade Lake)
