Don't Install if You Use a Really Old Mac

Don't Install if You Use a Really Old Mac

The macOS Mojave update isn't coming to all macs that could run macOS High Sierra, but it is still coming to many older Macs. 

If you use one of these old devices, you may want to wait to see how macOS Mojave runs on it for others. 

This will let you decide if the performance is fine, or if there are issues that will prevent you from reliably using your Mac. 

You'll be able to downgrade to macOS High Sierra, so you can test it out, but you'll want to make sure you have a good backup and that you have time to downgrade if macOS Mojave isn't what you expected.

    “you also get strong passwords automatically created and tracked by Safari, and available on your iPhone and iPad too”

    …already a feature with previous MacOS back to El Capitan.

    my Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 didn’t work with Mojave – the upgrade charges for features I don’t need.

    Please define “really old.” Does my 2012 iMac fit that description?

    This article claims to have been written on Feb 11, 2019. But these comments are from 2018.

    “Don’t update if you’re worried about Mojave problems” XD

    After installing Mojave (against my better judgement, but at Apple Support’s insistence for debugging iTunes metadata issues) my MacBook Pro now runs slower, Mail frequently fails to connect to my email server, Time Machine no longer works (seriously…), network drives no longer connect automatically nor via server name (must be connected manually via IP address, and even then they sometimes disconnect spontaneously), the App Store remodel is horrible, screenshots are now slower with stupid features that true screenshots do not need, Dock real-estate is reduced with a new recently-used apps section (thank goodness that can be switched off), and brilliantly there is NO WAY to revert back to an earlier OS. Time Machine backup, you say? Nope – Time Machine isn’t working for me since the “downgrade” to Mojave. Apple needs to STOP changing things simply for the sake of changing things. If it ain’t broke, don’t “fix” it. I now need to erase my hard drive in order to have a “Genius” install an older OS on my computer. Yep, because after two weeks of daily Apple Support conversations with no less than 9 different “senior” support advisors there is absolutely no progress towards resolving all the glitches Mojave has introduced. Apple is becoming less desirable to me each year. It seems more and more that they are getting too careless and flakey with their software design. (What’s next, malware susceptibility like Windows?) Mojave is the pinnacle of their retarded ideas of what people desire, as judging from my own experience and the quantity of people online wanting to revert back to anything earlier than Mojave. I think it’s safe to say that Mojave SUCKS.

    It’s updates like this (and many in the past) that Apple is no longer exciting or appealing!

    It’s more work trying to fix things after an Apple update, not even printers work anymore! What a nightmare :(
