Estimated read time 1 min read

To check your Python version on macOS, you can use the terminal and execute the following command:

python --version

Open the Terminal application on your macOS system and type the command mentioned above. Press Enter to execute the command. The output will display the version of Python installed on your macOS.

Alternatively, you can also use the following command to get more detailed information about the Python installation:

python -c "import platform; print(platform.python_version())"

Executing this command will print the Python version number, including the minor and micro version.

Note that macOS typically comes with a pre-installed version of Python. The exact version may vary depending on your macOS version. In addition to the system version, you can also install other versions of Python using package managers like Homebrew or through tools like pyenv or conda. If you have multiple Python installations, you can specify the desired version by using the appropriate command or by configuring your development environment accordingly.
