How to Create a macOS (Monterey, Ventura) Virtual Machine on an Apple Silicon Mac

A year ago, when you wanted to virtualize macOS on an Apple Silicon Mac, you had to get your hands dirty. Today, it has become extremely simple to create a virtual machine on a Mac M1 (and soon M2).

A virtual machine is very practical for developers or the curious who want to have a second version of macOS at their disposal. In particular, this makes it possible to carry out tests without an additional Mac. You can even try macOS Ventura without fear through this. But let’s start with installing macOS Monterey.


The simplest solution to create a macOS virtual machine is called virtualOS. This open source application is available for free on the Mac App Store and on GitHub.
