How to know mac version

Are you recently using a mac computer and have you read on the internet about a function available only for a particular version of the mac but you still don’t know how to know the installed mac version ? No problem, figuring out which version of macOS your Mac is using is a breeze and only takes a couple of clicks.

Without losing too much in useless chatter I’ll explain immediately how to see the mac version installed on your computer.

Know mac version

Appel periodically releases updates and new versions of the operating system so you should check from time to time if your Mac is updated to the latest version of the operating system.

To find out the mac version you are using you will have to select the Apple menu (with the apple symbol) at the top left and select the About this Mac item . A window will appear on the screen containing all the necessary information. In large you will see the family that is the main version of macOS (each is associated with a new name) and below the version number.

So to know mac version you are using take as a reference the name (in the example photos Catalina) to know the major version and the version (pictured 10.15.5).

On this page you will see all the versions released by Apple over time; This page is constantly updated with the latest versions.

At the time of writing this article, these versions of MaxOS have been released.
