  1. So, I've avoided Catalina on my (kinda old) MacBook Air due to all the bad things I read after Catalina's launch, mainly about performance. I wonder if now, that we're at version 10.15.3, things are better. Is anyone running 10.15.3 on an older Mac? How are things performance wise? P.S.: My MacBook Air is mid 2013.
  2. As for how well macOS Catalina works on older Macs, we’ve seen a few reports that users with older systems (2012–2015) are experiencing equal or better performance on Catalina versus Mojave.

Garageband for Catalina 10.15.7. Hi I have an old MacBook Pro (mid 2012) and have cleared it off so my son can create music on it using GarageBand. However in cleaning it up I removed the older garageband and now when I Redownload it from my App Store purchases I cannot open it because I need to have OS11. See full list on cntechpost.com. For example, if your Mac came with macOS Big Sur, it will not accept installation of macOS Catalina or earlier. If a macOS can't be used on your Mac, the App Store or installer will let you know. For example, it might say that it's not compatible with this device or is too old to be opened on this version of macOS.
