Mojave Supported Hardware
With Mojave will come the depreciation of OpenGL and OpenCL support, meaning that any games or applications like the Adobe Suite that make intensive use of these things will have to be updated to support Metal in macOS Mojave 10.14. Older versions of the application will still run in Mojave they just can’t be updated by the developers unless they switch over to Metal.
While macOS High Sierra was available for machines released as early as 2009 with Mojave for whatever reason is largely limited to 2012 or newer machines, with the exception of some older desktop Mac Pro models.
Mojave Supported Mac List:
- MacBook Early 2015+
- MacBook Air Mid 2012+
- MacBook Pro Mid 2012+
- Mac mini Late 2012+
- iMac Late 2012+
- iMac Pro 2017+
- Mac Pro Mid 2010, Mid 2012 Late 2013
Now Mojave is coming this fall, but it is available through the Paid Apple Developer Program right now. Traditionally macOS has always been offered early for developer testing, however this year Apple is also releasing a Free Mojave Public Beta available for all “Mac” Users that will be available for download in July as an effort to reduce the number of bugs come the official launch date in the fall. like each macOS release is every year.
