Mac OS 13 is changing to Mac OS 14, what you need to know

Mac OS Update Requirements Apple is introducing a major operating system update for your Mac, replacing Mac OS 13 with Mac OS 14 (Sonoma). Before you proceed with the update, it's crucial to verify your Mac's compatibility with the new version. Please note that Mac users have new requirements compared to previous Mac OS versions.

Storage Space: Ensure you have approximately 25GB of free space available on your Mac. Not having enough free space may lead to serious problems during the update process. We've seen many users come in with failed updates due to insufficient space, so this step is VERY important.
