Updating from mac 10 1 5 to 10 2 sydney dating service
Before you upgrade, be sure to read our How to Prepare Your Mac for mac OS Sierra article for additional advice.
If your Mac can't run Sierra, there's still a decent chance that it can run the previous version of mac OS, El Capitan, which may continue to receive security updates from Apple for another year or two.
Moreover, many third parties have stopped releasing software updates compatible with older operating systems.
For example, the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox won't run on anything older than Mavericks.
Keeping up with the latest mac OS updates and using third-party antivirus and security software (might we recommend some?
) are important factors in keeping your Mac protected.
Note: Although this article was written for mac OS Sierra (10.12), much of it still applies to mac OS High Sierra (10.13) which was released in September 2017.
High Sierra's system requirements are the same, except that High Sierra now requires 14.3 GB of available disk space, and a minimum of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) to do a direct-upgrade installation.
Some Mac models, such as 20 i Macs, are being left behind with El Capitan as their maximum OS version.Apple has not previously responded to press inquiries about this subject.
