MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) is to be released in Sept/Oct 2018 with added features but dropping for some models older than 2014 and all older than 2012

See full details below:

As reported by MacWorld and MacRumours macOS 10.14 codenamed Mojave (pronounced mo-HAH-vee) is in final beta stages with a release sometime in September of October 2018.

The new OS makes some models and some 32-bit programs obsolete. As long as you are currently running macOS High-Sierra on your Mac computers this should not be an issue for some time but you will not be able to use the new features that come with Mojave.

Only the following Macs support Mojave:

  • iMac models from 2012 or later
  • iMac Pro (from 2017)
  • MacBook models from 2015 or later
  • models from 2012 or later
  • MacBook Air models from 2012 or later
  • Mac mini models from 2012 or later
  • Mac Pro models from late 2013 (plus mid 2010 and mid 2012 models with recommend Metal-capable GPU)

You’ll notice what that last option means – no more cheese grater Mac Pro support.

A number of older programs and , will not run on Mojave as reported by MacWorld :

Adobe Illustrator CS5, Abobe InDesign CS5, Microsoft Excel 2011, , 2011, Microsoft Word 2011 and more …

For a full list of affected apps and how to identify 32 bit Apps currently installed, go the following MacWorld article:

If you are running 32 bit Apps in High-Sierra, you may see a message like the following when you use a 32 bit application.

If you are running macOS High Sierra on a device not supported by Mojave, do not worry. YET. As long as Apple keep releasing security updates for High Sierra, you should not be faced with Safari not opening up banking sites etc.

Apple usually continue to support the current macOS and two previous ones only. On 9th July 2018, support for Safari was still current for:

  • OS X El Capitan 10.11.6
  • macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  • macOS High Sierra .6

If Apple follow their usual pattern, It is safe to assume that support for El Capitan will be dropped and Safari will cease to become secure on banking websites after October 2018 however Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browser should still continue to work.
