2. Shared experience

Here are a couple of lines shared by a reviewer who is passionate about technology when updating to the latest version of Apple’s macOS operating system, please take a look:

“As of now, I can say with more certainty that my device works better after upgrading to macOS 12 Monterey from Big Sur and still haven’t encountered any errors.

That is the experience on the MacBook Pro 13 “2018 with mid-range configuration. Then, I tried it on a MacBook Air mid 2015 (max option), the performance dropped quite clearly right after the upgrade. up from macOS Catalina.

However, the machine has also tried to install Big Sur before and had a similar “performance crisis”. Therefore, if your model is very old (but still on the supported list) and is using macOS Catalina, Mojave or High Sierra versions, think seriously whether it is worth upgrading to macOS 12. Monterey or not.

And almost forgot, if you use software that uses “medicine” to run, be careful before upgrading. It’s best to “medicate” in the old version and then upgrade to it, but I haven’t tried it (I don’t use any apps that need it) so I’m not sure if it’s okay or not.”
