I have a 2019 13" MBP. It ran the Ventura OS fine. I updated the OS to Sonoma. Then the battery drains very fast. Is it possible to revert it back to Ventura?

If that is the only reason I would give it a few days to settle down Before deciding. It is not a widely reported problem.

To go back to Ventura you need to make a bootable Ventura installer, although using that you will still have Sonoma firmware. To roll back to Ventura firmware (and software) you will have to use Apple Configurator 2 which needs another Mac.

and yet that doesn't answer the OP's question. ventura was fine for them, why would they downgrade further? and why do you keep posting on the sonoma forum if you're not running sonoma? 🤔
I am running sonoma on m2 mba and m1 mini on Monterey, I already wrote about that. Some definitely should improve their reading and apprehension skills instead of writing meaningless comments.

got it, did not see that about sonoma on your m2 air. 👍

still doesn't explain why they should move to monterey when ventura was fine. so what was that, about 'writing meaningless comments'...? 🤔
