A group of developers created a program that allows users to install macOS Ventura on unsupported Macs. While this tool was initially a beta software, OpenCore 6.0 now has an official version for anyone who wants to try it out.

MacOS Ventura: It's now possible to install it on an older mac!

The "OpenCore Legacy Patcher" (OCLP) is a program that allows older Macs to run macOS Big Sur and Monterey, despite there being no official Apple support. It's a well-known macOS emulator used by Hackintosh.

The developers responsible for OCLP demonstrated some Macs running macOS Ventura two months after the debut of the first beta version of macOS Ventura. However, making OCLP compatible with macOS Ventura was not an easy task.

Apple has removed the majority of drivers from macOS 13. This is because this version does not now support Macs with Intel processors older than the seventh generation. Despite these limitations, the most recent version of OCLP managed to accomplish this.

Thanks to OpenCore, here are the macs that may run macOS Ventura.

2008 – 2016 MacBook2009 – 2017 MacBook Air2008 – 2016 MacBook Pro2009 – 2017 Mac mini2007 – 2017 iMac2008 – 2013 Mac Pro

This project is an unauthorized revision by Apple and is still in the works.

Anyway, as seen by the comments, most things work.

On GitHub, you can find further information on this OpenCore tool.
