Tip: ANYmacOS loads macOS installers from High Sierra and creates bootable installation media

ANYmacOS is the name of the Mac app with which you can download macOS installers and beta versions of current operating systems and use them directly for a bootable installation medium. The software from SL-Soft (SL = Sascha Lamprecht) is free and can be used from OS X 10.10 Yosemite. You can currently download various macOS versions from macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra to the beta of macOS 12 Monterey. What you need to know about the ANYmacOS app, how to download it and how to use it, I have summarized it below.

Abbreviation: Here it goes directly to the provider page

You can use ANYmacOS for free to download macOS installation files and create installers for bootable media. Details on download, installation and usage can be found here.

ANYmacOS - Download macOS installers and beta versions

With the freeware ANYmacOS you can - even without access to the Mac App Store - download installation files of the final macOS versions as well as of the current beta versions. From High Sierra to Mojave and Catalina to Big Sur, everything is currently included for regular use. If you want to try Monterey as a beta, you can also download this system via ANYmacOS. In addition to the simple file download in pkg format, you have the option of creating a boot stick or another bootable medium. So connect a USB stick or an external hard drive with enough memory and off you go.

Download, install and use ANYmacOS

On Provider side you can find the download of ANYmacOS for Mac models with at least OS X 10.10 Yosemite (Overview of all Mac systems with names and numbers). If you click on it and allow the download, a zip file will be saved in the corresponding folder. Unzip this and you already have the ANYmacOS program on your hard drive. Now you can move it from the download folder to the program folder. 

If you want to start it, however, there is likely to be a security warning that the app / developer is not verified and so on. Therefore opens via the Apple menu (top left on the menu bar) the System Settings and in it Safety. In the tab General Click on the "Open anyway" button at the bottom right. Now you can double-click the app symbol again. A message should appear again, but you can now click on the "Open" button. 

After the ANYmacOS download and installation there are (possibly) a few hurdles. After the first start, visit the security menu to allow the app to be opened.

When you open ANYmacOS on your Apple Mac again, you should now be able to actually run the app.

Once you have overcome these hurdles, you can finally use ANYmacOS. In two drop-down menus you can choose between the options “Customer Seed”, “Developer Seed”, “Public Seed” and “Show All” as well as the macOS versions available with them. Your currently used Mac operating system and its build are displayed to the right of this. At the bottom you can click on "Download" or "Create Installer" after selecting. Have fun trying.

Download macOS files in pkg format with ANYmacOS or create an installer - it's very easy. If you create the installer on a USB stick or an external hard drive, you have a bootable installation medium directly.
