Don't Install if You Rely on Old 32-Bit Apps

Don't Install if You Rely on Old 32-Bit Apps

Do you use a lot of older Mac apps or custom apps? If they are 32-bit apps, they will not run on macOS 10.15. Apple started warning users on macOS Mojave, so you likely know if you are using a 32-bit app, but if you aren't sure it is a good idea to check. 

Aperture for example is an Apple app that will not work on the new version of macOS. You should take a minute to check for apps that won't work. Here's how to check;

  1. Hold the option key and click on the Apple Logo in the upper left. 
  2. Click on System Information. 
  3. Scroll down to Software and Choose Applications. 
  4. Click on the 64-bit menu option to sort by it. 

If you see a "No" that app will not work on macOS 10.15. Some of the apps are from Apple and are part of macOS. Those should get an update as part of macOS 10.15, but others will not work on Catalina without an update. See if any of these apps are important to your workflow.

    Catalina has been nightmare for me. Even though I was connected to wifi I could not open any browser all of which insisted that I was not connected to the internet. I got no help from Apple to resolve this problem, in fact I was told that nothing could be done and I would have to live with it. After spending a whole day talking to ‘geniuses’ and some over the phone ‘support’ staff I suggested that they restore the Mac Book Pro to Mojave. They agreed to do this but said it would take about 48 hours to resolve. I spent over $6,000 on this laptop and all I have goto is a piece of junk.
