Hi There, as of now, Xerox has updated it's drivers to include the MAC OS Venutura. It typically takes a while before print drivers are avaialbe for the newest Mac OS's due to the intricacises of the Apple updates. You can try downloading the most the version prior to Ventura and see if that provides the entire array of Xerox print settings. If that doesn't work, reach out to our service team at 1-800-821-2797 or 1-800-835-6100.
Fyi, Catalina is an os from 2019. Three more operating systems have come after that, especially crucial and needed for the new generation of M-chip equipped macs. None of them is supported. So officially support for mac for this printed stopped 4 years ago.
Not sure where you got the info that it's not supported? Xerox support site has mac driver installers up to and including OS 10.15 Catolina.
Is anyone aware of alternative drivers to fully control a 6500 on a Mac? since ages the printer is no longer supported and generic poscript driver on mac os does not have full access to all printer setings (for example printing only in black and white). Currently running Mac Os Ventura.
It would be sad to have to throw away a perfectly working printer, not to mention enviromentally despicable, given its size and contents, and I would definitelly not buy a new one from a company that forces me to do enviromentally awful things.
thanks in advance
