- Apple announced macOS Ventura at WWDC 2022 on Monday.
- It includes some pretty significant updates for gaming on the Mac.
- One such addition is support for popular racing wheels from Logitech and beyond.
Apple's new macOS Ventura software will unlock support for racing wheels from Logitech and elsewhere.
These racing wheels are very popular with sim racers because they have a much higher level of immersion compared to using a controller for driving games, however, Mac support probably hasn't been a priority because gaming on Mac as a whole isn't that mainstream.
However, Apple is looking to change that with some beefy new macOS Ventura features, notably a new MetalFX Upscaling feature that improves rendering and graphical performance. Other tools include fast resource loading, and more. All of this should help unlock the power of Apple silicon, and as gaming improves and becomes more viable on Mac, wheels like Logitech's G920 and G29 will become more important to users.
Indeed, Grid Legends is coming to macOS later this year, and is one such game that would be vastly elevated by the use of a wheel over a controller.
The first betas of all Apple's software is now available for download for developers.
