When Apple releases its macOS High Sierra follow up in the fall in the form of 10.14, there will be an important change concerning apps. As the company has stated since WWDC 2017, the next iteration of macOS will be the first that will not support 32-bit apps “without compromise”. And while this certainly isn’t breaking news, it’s good to have a reminder so you can prepare.
So how exactly do you find out which apps will not be fully supported when macOS 10.14 is released (likely) in the fall? Check out our quick guide below.
1) Click the Apple icon in the top left of your screen and click “About This Mac”.
2) Next, click System Report from the pop-up window. (Note: The process is the same for Sierra and High Sierra).3) Scroll down and choose “Applications” from the left menu under the Software tab. 4) After clicking Applications, you’ll see which apps are and aren’t of the 64-Bit variety. At this point it’s unclear what the affects will be on apps that aren’t fully supported. For answers to those questions, it will be best to reach out to the developer directly.
