Xerox Printers and the macOS Monterey 12

The annual release of the new macOS Monterey 12 happened recently. Our drivers and other software available for our printers and multifunction devices were tested with the new OS.  

Please check for the driver availability for your printers by reviewing the compatibility document for macOS Monterey that is posted on the Xerox equipment compatibility with new operating systems page to see if a driver has been or will be created for your model of printer or multifunction device (MFD). There are 5 compatibility levels.  Many printers will have a 1 in the Compatibility Level column. This indicates drivers are available for this product.  A 2 in the column indicates that no driver is planned for the device. 

Driver Available

Drivers for the new macOS are found on the support pages for the printers or MFD.   To find the newest drivers navigate to the Xerox Support and Drivers page for your model.  Make sure to choose the printer configuration you have, if applicable. Then select the macOS 12 Monterey operating system from the Operating System drop down menu. Select Apply Filter to see driver(s). Install the driver. 

No Driver Available Workarounds

If the compatibility level column indicates a 2, no specific drivers are planned for that model printer.  For a printer without a specific scan driver or when a print driver is not available, AirPrint and Scan to Email may be used as a workaround.  Please see the article Macintosh OS Driver is Not Available in the online support for additional information.

AirPrint does not provide all the print features that the Xerox specific driver does. Scan to Email requires a network connection. Depending on the type of email service used, the service may require the email to leave the network. Additionally, scan to email requires an email server or email provider.

For additional information, you can search the online knowledgebase for your product. reach out to your local support centre or post a question on the Xerox Community Support Forum.
