Those of you still happily using your Mac from 2016 or older will be missing out from the update coming later in 2022, but you’ll still be able to use your Mac as normal.
However, you may notice some of your favorite apps begin to stop supporting your older macOS operating system. You might not notice a change right away, but third-party apps will likely require you to upgrade to Ventura if you want to use them.
You might also be at increased risk of facing a security breach. Hackers have had longer to work out how to crack open older hardware and software, using workarounds that are probably patched in newer updates.
