    Hi Subscriptions  Official updates for Mac support in the RealSense SDK ceased after MacOS High Sierra in 2018.  However, RealSense cameras have continued to work with Macs in subsequent MacOS releases, the most recent highly stable ones being MacOS Catalina and Big Sur.


    After the introduction of MacOS Monterey and the Apple Silicon range of 'M' chip computers, compatibility reduced as USB related problems became more common.  An installation guide for MacOS Monterey / Apple Silicon was developed by a RealSense user though.


    The subsequent MacOS releases Ventura and Sonoma continue to experience issues though.  Although Intel do not provide official Mac support, the RealSense MacOS user community continues to develop and share solutions.


    The RealSense Viewer tool can be run on Mac with the command realsense-viewer or sudo realsense-viewer


    I would recommend attempting install with the simple brew install librealsense instruction first to see whether that works for you.
