A Complete List of Mojave Compatible Macs

Apple announced macOS 10.14 Mojave, the anticipated follow-up to High Sierra, at today’s WWDC 2018 keynote. And while iOS 12 didn’t drop compatibility from the list of devices that work with iOS 11, Mojave does drop support for some Macs. Below is the list of all compatible Macs with macOS 10.14.

  • MacBook (Early 2015 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Mid 2012 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 or later)
  • Mac mini (Late 2012 or later)
  • iMac (Late 2012 or later)
  • iMac Pro (2017)
  • Mac Pro (Late 2013, plus mid-2010 and mid-2012 models with recommended Metal-capable GPU)

You can find the list of Mac’s compatible with High Sierra here, which you will notice dates back to 2009 models in some cases. Find more coverage from WWDC 2018 here and make sure your Mac is ready to run its best for Mojave with My Upgrades

  • i have a 27-inch iMac Mid 2011, 2.7ghz intel core I5 . i can’t afford to buy another iMac , i guess i don’t upgrade , or when this one doesn’t work anymore , i can go to the dark side and buy a HP . god forbid .

  • Doggone it. With Mojave, Apple is finally completely disenfranchising 17″ MacBook Pro users (the last version of the 17″ was in 2011). Sierra runs fine on both of my 17″ MacBook Pros, but High Sierra…less joy there.

    I had hoped that Mojave would run, and I could just skip High Sierra, but apparently not. So when Apple drops support for Sierra…#@%$!&!

    I need the screen real estate of the 17″ MBP. I’d gladly buy a brand new 17″ MBP if Apple made one…no, wait—I’d buy two of them. It’s not about the money. But I’ve pretty much accepted that that’s never going to happen.

    It’s really kinda perverse the way Apple occasionally just throws their users under the bus.

  • Is there a definition as to what a “Metal Capable” video card means? What would be he specs for such a card?

  • Wonder if I can skip HS and go directly to Mojave. I didn’t like the issues people were having with HS so I never installed it. MBP – mid 2012

  • Regarding the announcement that Mojave will only support Mac Pro models with METAL capable video cards.

    Is there a list of METAL capable graphics cards for the Mac Pro 5,1 (mid 2010)? Are there any graphics cards which support METAL AND are capable of showing the Apple boot screen, support bootcamp and do so out-of-the-box without any ROM modification?

  • Looking at the Macrumors threat of people trying to install Mojave on older than allowed Macs, the deviding line seems to be if the Mac has a Metal compatabile GPU. Looks like Mojave UI is updated to run metal only or nearly only.

  • Why the gap between 2010 and late 2012 iMacs?
    My i7 2010 runs 10.13 just fine, and then 10.14 suddenly needs a machine that is two years newer?
