    Apple's upcoming macOS Catalina update will be able to run on a wide range of Macs, dating back to 2012. Apple on its Catalina website today shared a list of all the Macs that will be able to run the new software.

    Compatible Macs are listed below:

    [*]2015 MacBook and later
    [*]2012 iMac and later
    [*]2012 MacBook Air and later
    [*]2017 iMac Pro and later
    [*]2012 MacBook Pro and later
    [*]2013 Mac Pro and later
    [*]2012 Mac mini and later

    These are all of the same Macs that were able to run macOS Mojave, with the exception of the mid-2010 and mid-2012 Mac Pro models, which will not be getting the update.

    macOS Catalina is currently available to registered developers, who can download the software using the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences with the proper profile installed. Apple plans to make Catalina available to public beta testers in July, and the software will launch officially in the fall.

    I’m not upgrading because I use Aperture which is not compatible with this version so I’ll be staying on Mojave..

    Glad to see my MacBook Pro is still chugging along all these years.

    2012 Mac Mini will be supported for another 2 years, its was still sold in 2016.

    Edit: Now I think of it, it's the 2012 MBP, I have both, the MBP was still up for sale in 2016, not sure about the Mac Mini, it's got the same hardware so why shouldn't it.

    Glad to see I haven’t been cut off yet... although if no NVidia drivers are release, I’ll have to go back to High Sierra anyway. Wish this could get sorted out.

    2012 classic MBP still going strong. What a beast. It just won’t die.

    Bad form, Apple. I know you've just released a new Mac Pro (albeit, one that's out of the ordinary user's price range), but for those who just upgraded their 2010-2012 cMP graphics cards last year with the expectation of a few more years of updates... :oops:

    Shameful.

    You'll still get updates, just not the newest version of macOS. It's always hard when hardware is left behind but it's inevitable.

    I believe it was discontinued when the 2014 Mac mini was introduced. Having said that, if they do officially discontinue support for it (which wouldn't be too surprising), it should still be easy to make it run it.

    Woo hoo! My daughter and I have late-2013 MBPs. Probably the best investment I made was paying a premium for a notebook that’ll last. If I had gone economy with a basic Windows notebook, it would have been replaced a few times by now.

    Sure, if you'd like to split hairs. That's not my point. You know very well what my point is. ;)

    What is? This is the same list of Macs that can run 10.14 Mojave. Unless I missed something.

    You didn’t miss anything.

    Some people just need to find something to grumble about.

    I’m glad my Mac mini is still supported, I’ve really only added/updated RAM, and it still runs like a top. It was the last “user-friendly” Mac mini until the latest model came out last year. And when my fusion drive takes a dirt nap, I’ll probably replace it and squeeze some more miles out of it.

    My wife’s 2012 15” MBP is running better than ever with the SSD I installed. Glad to see it will continue to be supported!
