Apple today rolled out the build for macOS Monterey 12.4. One that you probably won’t find on your Mac. It is intended for consumers using the M2 chip.
The update, with build number 21F20921, is only available for the new Macs. The good thing, however, is that these have not yet appeared on the market at all.
Apple rolls out macOS Monterey 12.4 for M2 Macs
macOS Monterey 12.4 has been available for the Mac for a while now. Yet today the update appears again, but for upcoming laptops. For example, starting today it is possible to pre-order the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. It will then ship starting next week. From then on, there will be an update ready for consumers to provide the M2 Mac with the correct software.
Of course, the update will be on the M2 MacBook Pro first. The M2 MacBook Air will not be available until July. At least, that’s the expectation.

Click on the Apple logo in the upper left corner of your screen
Select the System Preferences option
Then click on Software Update
On the new pop-up screen, click on the option Update my Mac automatically
As soon as Apple has a new version of macOS Monterey or Ventura, it will be downloaded in the background. As soon as you turn off your computer and restart it will also be installed immediately.
