Why Can't I Download Mojave On My Macbook Pro

I’ve installed Mojave on a Macbook Pro late 2011 and a Mac Pro 2008 (3.1). It works like a charm on may MacBook Pro but I got a lot of issues on my Mac Pro. Graphic issues even if I have a compatible Nvidia graphic card. Application crashes (Logic Pro 10.4.2), wifi not working anymore. Why cant I download iMovie on my Mac? Whenever I try to download it on the Apple store I'm met with 'iMovie can’t be installed on Macintosh HD because macOS version 10.13.6 or later is required.' I'm on MacOs Sierra 10.12.6. Even though owners of no-longer-supported Macs won't be able to install Mojave, their current OS should do just fine for at least a year or two. Apple typically continues to release security. MacBook (13' Late 2008 Aluminum, Early 2009 or later) MacBook Pro (13' Mid-2009 or later) MacBook Pro (15' Mid/Late 2007 or later) MacBook Pro (17' Late 2007 or later) MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later).

As expected, Apple has started shipping new Macs with macOS 10.15 Catalina. We’re still hesitant to recommend upgrading to Catalina, particularly if you use Mail, since reports of email data loss continue. Luckily, downgrading a new Mac from Catalina to 10.14 Mojave is possible for models other than the 16-inch MacBook Pro and the 2019 Mac Pro. Mac scripting expert (and author of the new book Moving to zsh) Armin Briegel has published a guide explaining how to roll back a new Mac that ships with Catalina to Mojave. Unfortunately, the process to install Mojave isn’t straightforward, requiring a Mojave Installer USB drive. It’s particularly fussy if your Mac is equipped with a T2 security chip since you have to set up an account before you can use Security Utility to enable booting from external drives. Regardless, you will have to erase the internal drive entirely before you can install Mojave due to Catalina’s bifurcated drive structure.

Use Software Update

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu , then click Software Update to check for updates.
  2. If any updates are available, click the Update Now button to install them. Or click “More info” to see details about each update and select specific updates to install. You might be asked to enter your administrator password.
  3. When Software Update says that your Mac is up to date, the installed version of macOS and all of its apps are also up to date. That includes Safari, Music, Photos, Books, Messages, Mail, Calendar, and FaceTime.
  4. To automatically install future updates, including for apps that you got from the App Store, select “Automatically keep my Mac up to date.” Your Mac will notify you when updates require it to restart, so you can always choose to install those later.
