Find out if your Apple computer meets the minimum system requirements of the new macOS Mojave 10.4.
Apple have released a developer beta of their upcoming operating system named macOS Mojave, which will be macOS 10.14. The name MoJave continues on with their California landmarks with the name after a scenic CA region, it should be publicly available between September to November
For this upgrade unfortunately a lot of models pre 2012 are now incompatible unlike the previous upgrades of macOS Sierra and macOS High Sierra 10.13 which hardly dropped any models on there release.
For the older Sierra upgrades Apple had already dropped support for any models pre late 2009 for MacBook and iMac. Also anything pre 2010 for MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and Mac Pro.
You’ll still require a 64bit Intel processor, Iris Graphics 4000 series or later and 8GBs of free disk space – if upgrading, as appose to clean install min plus at least 2GB of RAM – 4GB+ preferred.
The Macs that will run macOS Mojave
- iMac – all models from late 2012, iMac 13,1 – 18,3
- iMac Pro – all models, iMac Pro 1,1
- MacBook & MacBook Retina – all models from late 2009, MacBook 8,1 – 10,1
- MacBook Pro – all models from 2012, MacBook Pro 9,2 – 15,1
- MacBookAir – all models from 2012, MacBook Air 5,1 – 7,2

- Mac Pro – all models from 2012, Mac Pro 6,1 and from 2010-2012 Mac Pro 5,1 models with recommended Metal-capable GPU
Which means most devices made prior to 2008 won’t be able to run it.
