Can my Mac run macOS Sierra?

14 Jun, 2016

Did your Mac make the cut to run Apple's latest desktop OS?

At today's WWDC Keynote, Apple announced the next release for the Mac's operating system – version 10.12 "Sierra", as well a new name: macOS.

And for the first time since Mountain Lion in 2012, Apple has dropped support for some older hardware.

To run macOS Sierra, you'll need:

Late 2009 or later:

  • MacBook
  • iMac

2010 or later:

  • MacBook Air
  • MacBook Pro
  • Mac Mini
  • Mac Pro

If you're still running one of the dropped Macs (like my trusty Late 2008 MacBook Pro), it might be time to consider an upgrade. Or, keep track of which of your most important apps keep working with your current version of macOS with the RoaringApps compatibility table.
