Note: While chances of something going wrong are quite slim, we will still recommended that you take the time out to backup everything to iCloud or an external drive. Once you are confident that your files are safe and secure, only then go ahead with download. 

  • First and foremost, you have saved all your work and you are connected to the internet either using Wi-Fi or Ethernet, it's entirely up to you.
  • Now launch System Preferences.
  • Click on Software Update.
  • Let Software Update refresh and it may take several tries for the update to actually show up for you. Once it does, go ahead and install it.

Again, since this is a major software release, it will take a lot of time to install. It also depends on how much stuff you have in your internet drive as well. If it's completely packed, then it may take a while before you can actually start using macOS Monterey.

If you want, you can download and install the update from scratch (read: clean install). It is a great thing to do especially if your Mac feels very slow and you need to boost things up somehow. But remember, you will need to backup everything before you can do that. Once you are done with the backup, follow the tutorials below:
