Don't Install If Your Situation is Fluid or You're Traveling

If you're still hunkered down at home trying to weather the coronavirus, if you're a first responder that uses your Mac, or if you are you unable to spend time on the phone with Apple if something goes wrong after the update, you should wait to install until a later date.

There's a chance macOS Monterey 12.6 works fine on your Mac, but it takes a while to install the update and there is always a chance something could go wrong.

You might not want to deal with 1) waiting an hour for an update to install, 2) finding help with some Apple Stores closed, and/or 3) dealing with apps or services that aren't working.

If any of these things concern you, you might want to hold off until we know more about macOS Monterey 12.6 and its performance.

If you are preparing to go on a trip or if you're in the middle of a trip, you might want to hold off on the installation. 

macOS Monterey 12.6 has the potential to cause problems and that's probably the last thing you want to be dealing with on a fun trip with your family or on an important business trip. 

If you're going to be away from home and away from your backups, we highly recommend holding off on an upgrade.

    Preview Version 11.0 (1033.4) freezes more than half the time I use it.
    ‘Report Issue to Apple’ gives me the spinning coloured wheel for about 30-45 s before it recovers.
    I had to force quit the Finder just today. I was unable to re-launch the Finder. I had to manually power down, and then it took about 4-5 tries to get the MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021) (Apple M1 Pro chip) to start again.
