Dec 5, PM. I am on MAC OS High Sierra but the update to iTunes to be able to connect o my new iPhone won't download and it says to upgrade to the newest software- the newest software does not list my MacBook pro early as being able to use it-- so do I have to get a new computer to work with my new iPhone and iPad?
I have kind of gotten lost as to which iOS device models require which systems and which iTunes versions, etc. Apple always assumes you can -- and will -- run the newest stuff. Make sure your High Sierra is updated, but Apple dropped separate iTunes downloads for Macs after Question: Q: Can I update my macbook pro early to the new software?

Posted on Sep 26, PM. The official list currently reads:. Because this list is based primarily on GPU compatibility, it seems unlikely that there will be any hack or cheat which extends it to earlier models. Eh, that's not a list of "hardware requirements," it's a list of models. It looks like planned obsolescence, aka, "naked greed.

My thoughtful replies tend to get deleted, Bob, so read it quick. My MBP runs faster than my MacBook, and the claim that "it can't run Metal, therefore they it can't run Mojave" doesn't seem to bear out. Page content loaded. Sep 26, PM.
If Apple wanted you to buy a new computer every year, why did they wait for 7 years in your case? Think about it. Technology changes over the years. Your old computer can not run new apps or new operating systems. Why has this got anything to do with "Apple is really just getting greedy Maybe it is that you are too inflexible to keep current with advancing technology.
It must have been hard for you when radio vacuum tubes were no longer available and your radio wouldn't run with transistors then integrated circuit boards? Was it a conspiracy by greedy radio manufacturers to make you buy new radios as technology advanced? A computer is 6 years old, this does not sound like Apple getting greedy and wanting you to buy a new computer every other year as you said. The issue is old hardware that can not run new technology.
Oct 30, PM in response to stateofthej In response to stateofthej. I don't think I was responding to you nor did I see any other post from you. I suggest if you are having an issue with your or MacBook Pro that you start your own thread providing details of your issue. Starting your own thread will ensure you get focused assistance on your specific issue. My rig is almost identical, same issue. OK, but there is no answer except that your computer is not capable of running Mojave. It is pointless to try to assign conspiracy based motives to why Mojave does not run on old hardware.
Why doesn't Windows 10 run on old Microsoft hardware? Why don't old cars run on unleaded gas? There is no conspiracy it is changing and advancing technology. If you want assistance in trying to determine why your computer is running slow please start another thread and we'll be happy to try to help you. I have the same problem with my early mbp as well, does anyone or admin know of what graphics card would be compatible with that model and would be able to run METL.
I believe we can upgrade that MBP with a new graphics card. Nov 2, PM. Nov 11, AM in response to dialabrain In response to dialabrain. My computer is technically newer, correct? If my computer doesn't have the correct GPU's then they need to tell us how to get them updated so it does! Write your thoughts in our old-fashioned comment. MacUpdate Comment Policy.

Emaculatio praecox. Thanks, but no thanks. Better be careful - my MBP 13 would shut down prematurely during each boot after installing this update. Fortunately I made a backup of my boot disk before updating - restored from that and everything's back to normal.

Tournesol Dec 28 The first keystroke sometimes ignored when typing has not been fixed with the update for MacBooks and MacBook Pros, and Apple has now locked the huge thread about the problem on their forums. Flomet Dec 25 Same for me, this update has not fixed the delay with the first key.
Come on Apple fix it please as this is my first experience with a MackBook Pro 8 weeks old and has already been back to the shop for repair with a battery problem that took 8 days to repair. I am a very unsatisfied mac user at the moment. Espirit Dec 21 I have an odd problem with this update. First, it doesn't seem to actually do anything, and secondly and probably because of the first point it continually pops up as needing to be installed. I get the software update message every single day saying i need to install this and every single time i download it and it just comes back the next day.
Anybody else had this problem? Josdans Dec 20 This fix does not help on my MacBook Pro. The keys still hangs now and then and I have to restart. Tournesol Dec 19
