MacOS 13 Ventura lacks four capabilities that are frustratingly inaccessible to Intel-powered Macs
Many Mac users will be unable to upgrade to the next major version of the operating system when macOS Ventura is released this fall.
Using the Sidecar functionality that introduced in 2019 with macOS Catalina, Mac users running macOS Ventura can use their M1-equipped 12.9-inch iPad Pro as a wireless reference monitor on their own.
Macs powered by Apple’s native M2 or M1 SoCs are not compatible with this functionality, which allows colour grading and other media editors to benefit from the accuracy and contrast ratio of the mini-LED display on the iPad Pro’s latest model.
