I am a student in Computer Science and for classes we are working with OpenGL.
My issue is that I can't run any program because of my OpenGL driver version.

Graphic card : Intel(R) Iris(TM) Plus Graphics 655
Driver OpenGL : 2.1 INTEL-12.4.7

After some researches I've found that MacOS supports OpenGL 4.1 So, why my Macbook Pro from 2018 isn't running 4.1 version but 2.1?
Is there a way to upgrade/update the version?

Thank you all for your help, I am very desperate

  • Apple has depreciated OpenGL and OpenCL in MacOS in favor of Metal. Nevertheless, according to Apple, you should have OpenGL 4.1 and OpenCL 1.2. It's not possible on Apple computers to upgrade OpenGL and OpenCL versions, as they are closely related to the hardware. – harrymc Feb 6 at 9:11
  • Yes I should have 4.1 but my computer uses 2.1. Is my computer wrongly configured? – edajv Feb 6 at 11:00
  • Or it's not a Macbook Pro 2018. – harrymc Feb 6 at 11:03
