A few weeks ago was presented a desktop operating system macOS Mojave. As expected, the old Apple computers support the new version not received. However, to install the new system on the legacy Mac is still possible and today we’ll show you how to do it.
The minimum requirements for macOS 10.14 was higher than a year earlier. At the moment, the list of officially supported Apple computers looks like this:
- MacBook (early 2015 and newer)
- iMac (late 2012 and newer)
- MacBook Air (mid 2012 and later)
- MacBook Pro (mid 2012 and later)
- Mac Mini (late 2012 and newer)
- Mac Pro (late 2013, mid 2010, mid 2012)
- iMac Pro (2017)
The remaining Macs left “in flight”. However, this issue is now solved, thanks to enthusiasts from the project Dosdude. The developers have released a special patch to make the installation of the new system is available on the following equipment:
- Xserve 2009
- Mac Pro 2009
- iMac Late 2009 — Late 2011 – exclusively on Intel Core series “i”
- MacBook Air Mid 2011
- MacBook Pro Mid 2010 — Late 2011 — exclusively on Intel Core series “i”
- Mac Mini Mid 2011
Of course, it was not entirely without problems – for example, these computers using built-in graphics Intel HD 3000, sometimes you can encounter problems when rendering interface.
