I've a wallet file in the JSON format with address, cipher, ciphertext, salt, etc (version 3).

How can I restore it into Exodus wallet?

In Developer menu I can only see Restore from 12-word phrase....

I'm using Exodus desktop app (v1.51.0) on macOS.

The JSON file is actually a keystore file - it contains your encrypted private key. As far as I know Exodus does not support importing Ethereum private keys. You can use MyCrypto offline to access your wallet using the keystore file.

Then simply send the funds to a new address created in Exodus. Make sure to backup the 12 word mnemonic phrase.
