Prior to the release of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple updated macOS Monterey with a small overhaul specifically for the Apple Silicon M2 processor.

The macOS Monterey update comes a full month after the first release of macOS 12.4. However, this appears to be an update for Macs running an M2 processor, which are not yet available for purchase.

Only those with the M2 processor will receive the update. Presumably the pre-release models are the only active Mac M2s outside of Apple.

The update uses the same version number of macOS 12.4, but its build number has increased. This is build number 21F2092, from 21F79.
