Apple has introduced macOS 10.12 also named macOS Sierra yesterday at the WWDC 2016 event. The previous name of OS X was sent into retirement and instead Apple uses a name that fits much better to iOS, and watchOS, tvOS. Hardly spoken aloud, of course, also raises the question of what the new Macs will be compatible with macOS Sierra.
Apple has macOS Sierra last night not only presented, but also provided the Beta 1 for registered developers. But on what Macs can install them? The answer announced yesterday during the keynote Apple.
List of supported Macs with macOS Sierra:
- MacBook (late 2009 and later).
- iMac (late 2009 and later).
- MacBook Air (late 2010 and later).
- MacBook Pro (late 2010 and later).
- Mac Mini (late 2010 and later).
- Mac Pro (late 2010 and later).
This results in a small new feature with OS X El Capitan. Many 2007 to 2009 models that are still in harmony with OS X El Capitan, are no longer supported by macOS Sierra. Nevertheless, Apple will provide support for a number of older models.
