Step 2: Clean up your Mac from all unneeded junk files

macOS Monterey requires 20GB of free disk space to be able to install it. You should have enough free space to prevent issues when upgrading to macOS Monterey.

Use MacCleaner Pro to see what’s taking space on your disk and clean up your Mac in minutes.

Step 3: Back up your Mac

Backing up Mac’s hard drive is an absolute must-to-do step before any upgrade, including to macOS Monterey.

Launch Time Machine and follow the onscreen instructions to save your data.

Step 4: Download macOS 13 Ventura

When macOS Ventura’s public version comes out, follow these steps to upgrade your system:

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Сlick on Software Update.
  3. Сlick on Update Now.

Also, you can download macOS Ventura from the App Store. For this, open the App Store, find macOS 13 Ventura, and click the Get button to download it to your Mac.

Step 5: Install macOS Ventura

The installation process is easy. Once the macOS Ventura installer opens, follow the onscreen instructions and wait until the installation is completed.

Note, do not put your Mac to sleep or close it until the Ventura upgrading is completed.

We recommend that you begin the macOS Ventura installation in the evening so that, if needed, you could leave your Mac overnight for a complete upgrade.
