Dropbox to rollout the full support for macOS 12.5 or later to all by May

Dropbox has announced that it is continuing to expand full support for macOS 12.5 or newer. If a few users have not yet received the update, they will sometime between now and the end of May 2023. 


Last year, Apple deprecated kernel extensions used by cloud storage services like Dropbox in macOS 12.3 which caused issues with the app’s performance. Dropbox notified Mac users that the Dropbox app for macOS will not be fully compatible with the macOS 12.3 update, and they would face issues accessing online-only files upon upgrading their computers to the macOS 12.3 version.

In August, the company announced a new beta app with full macOS Monterey support in late 2022. Now, it is rolling out a new update that fixes the issue of the online-only files.

As per the announcement, the company has utilized Apple File Provider API to fix the issue of accessing online-only files on macOS 12.5 or later versions.

Dropbox is continuing to expand the rollout of full support for macOS 12.5 and higher. The latest version of Dropbox for macOS utilizes Apple’s updated File Provider API and fixes issues related to opening online-only files in third-party applications for users on macOS 12.5 or higher. This updated experience is more integrated with macOS and comes with some changes that are consistent with macOS requirements.

However, the rollout is rather slow. The company said the update will be available to all by the end of May 2023 because it is working to “preserve the reliability and quality” of its sync experience.
