OpenCore Legacy Patcher is working on macOS Sonoma support

The upcoming macOS Sonoma from Apple will have a different range of supported Macs compared to macOS Ventura, but the OpenCore Legacy Patcher team is working now to bring the newer OS to older Macs.

The OpenCore Legacy Patcher is a software utility that enables PC users and owners of older Mac models to install newer macOS versions on their computers. This community-driven project, built upon OpenCore, is specifically tailored for older Macs.

Recently, Mykola Grymalyuk, the leader of the patcher project, shared an update stating that their team has been working on the latest macOS Sonoma release. As proof, he provided a screenshot demonstrating the successful execution of macOS Sonoma on a 2013 Mac Pro.

Presently, these devices’ sole recognized constraint is the absence of wireless functionality. However, graphics support remains unaffected and is fully compatible.

The team is addressing problems related to graphics cards that utilize the 31001 compilers. This includes resolving issues for Macs equipped with Intel Broadwell and Intel Skylake chips and 3802 GPUs from Intel Ivy Bridge, Intel Haswell, and Nvidia Kepler.
