CCC 6: Support for macOS 12 Monterey
CCC 6.0.4 (and later) is qualified for macOS 12 Monterey. Please take a moment to review the following resources prior to upgrading your Mac's OS:
If you're beta-testing Apple's new macOS 13.0 Ventura, you can help us test CCC 6 against the new OS too. Currently we aren't tracking any problems with CCC 6.1.2 on the new OS, so we have not yet started a new beta cycle. We'll start a new beta cycle towards the end of June to add minor cosmetic support (e.g. "Ventura" instead of "13.0" wherever applicable).
Please choose Ask a Question from CCC's Help menu to let us know if you encounter any problems or have questions about support for new features of that OS.
CCC 5 is compatible with Yosemite (10.10), El Capitan(10.11), Sierra (10.12), High Sierra (10.13), Mojave (10.14), Catalina (10.15) and Big Sur (11.*). If you are having trouble downloading CCC v5 from the link above, try this alternate download location.
Compatibility and support for CCC v5 on Monterey and newer OSes
CCC v5 license holders are welcome to continue using CCC v5 on OSes beyond macOS Big Sur; there aren't any limitations placed upon CCC v5 that would prevent it from continuing to work as Apple issues new OS releases. However, CCC v5 development ceased when CCC v6 was released in May 2021. We will continue to offer technical support for CCC 5, but we are no longer actively developing it, nor testing it against newer OSes.
Known Issues with CCC v5 and macOS Monterey
- Currently we have not received any reports of problems with using CCC v5 on macOS Monterey.
CCC v4 is no longer supported, however if you have a license for CCC v4, v5, or v6, you may download CCC 4.1.24 for use on Mountain Lion (10.8) or Mavericks (10.9). If you are having trouble downloading CCC from the link above, try this alternate download location.
We no longer sell nor support CCC v3. If you already have a license for CCC v3 and you need to re-download that older version of CCC, please contact our sales support team.
