macOS 12.5

Juli Clover:

macOS Monterey 12.5 adds a bug fix for a Safari tab issue and it adds the option to restart, pause, rewind, or fast-forward a live sports game that’s in progress. Apple’s release notes for the update are below.

You can download the installer and IPSW.

Howard Oakley:

There are about 50 security fixes for Monterey, detailed in this article. These include three in the kernel. Big Sur security release notes are here, and those for Catalina are here.

Mr. Macintosh:

If you have one of the following Macs DO NOT update to 12.5.

  • MacBookPro9,1
  • MacBookPro10,1
  • MacBookPro11,3
  • iMac13,x (units with dGPUs)
  • iMac14,x (units with dGPUs)
  • OR IF YOU UPGRADED YOUR GPU TO KEPLER in your iMac or Mac Pro!

Apple changed something and the Kepler GPU patches are not working correctly now. For now stay on 12.4 until more information comes in.


Update (2022-07-25): Mr. Macintosh:

Some users install the RC version thinking it’ll be the public release

Sometimes it is, and everything is fine

In this case, RC1 turned out to be beta software

This is a good reminder that an RC is not the final version until Apple confirms the public build version is the same

To save others the effort of checking: Mr. Macintosh's warning about not updating to 12.5 applies to certain older Mac models using the OpenCore Legacy Patcher, none of which are officially supported by macOS Monterey. The models listed are 2012-2014 15-inch MacBook Pros and iMacs with NVIDIA dGPUs.
