Oct 08, 2019 Here you will know how to Download and Install macOS Catalina on Apple Macs, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air Laptops. Apple is the only brand that pushes the latest updates to its so older devices. And this time also, MacOS Catalina will roll out to all the Desktops and Laptops introduced after mid 2012. I'm running the 2012 MBP (the one with the disk drive) On Mojave with a Sata SSD and it's so good. Though that may be due to the fact that it only has to render a 720p screen. I'm in Australia and Catalina isn't out but that same MacBook (Mid 2012) seems like it can still run it. I guess we shall see.

How to upgrade to macOS Catalina – Apple Support
And caution on 10.15 or higher, to see which Apps will no longer work in 10.15 get Go64...

Sad news for owners of Mid 2010 and Mid 2012 Mac Pros, no Catalina for them.
In my previous article, I wrote that all Macs that run macOS 10.14 Mojave will also be able to run macOS 10.15 Catalina. However, this isn’t entirely true.
The Mid 2010 and Mid 2012 Mac Pro are the only two Macs that are capable of running Mojave that won’t be able run Catalina when it is released later this year.
Digging deeper into this, it appears the Mid 2010 and Mid 2012 Mac Pro could only run Mojave providing the graphics card had been upgraded to a Metal-compatible card – see Apple’s list of supported cards. Otherwise they could only run up to macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
However, even if you own a Mid 2010 or Mid 2012 Mac Pro that has a Metal-capable graphics card and is running Mojave, you will not be able to upgrade it to Catalina.
I am unsure of the reason for this, but I am sure there will be many Mid 2010 and Mid 2012 Mac Pro owners who aren’t happy by this news.
I find it a little strange that Apple will continue to support the Mid 2012 11″ MacBook Air, their lowest offering (with the exception of the Late 2012 Mac mini) costing $999 on launch, but fail to support the 2012 Mac Pro, their highest offering costing $2,499, both released in the same year.
We can only hope that some clever developer will release an unofficial patch that will allow Catalina to install and extend the life of these two Mac Pro models.
