Do I really need to?

That’s been a common question regarding the new Mac OS Mojave; pronounced Mohavi, this is the new Mac Operating System (OS) upgrade that’s available to some Apple users.

I say some, because your Mac needs to be of a certain age before you can install it.

Your iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air must be late 2012 or newer.

A MacBook needs to be early 2015 or newer or if you any of the iMac Pro’s, all these models are compatible.

If your machine doesn’t meet these requirements, you’ll have to stick with an older version of the Mac OS. So back to my original question, are you really missing out if you can’t or decide not to upgrade?

There’s quite a few visual changes and a number of new applications added to this release, so bearing in mind that it’s a free upgrade, you don’t have anything to lose apart from the downtime while it does the actual install.

IMPORTANT: If you decide to take the plunge, remember to take a full Time Machine backup BEFORE you upgrade.
