Apple said in June it will bar all 32-bit applications from running on up-to-date Macs in little more than a year.
Although the Cupertino, Calif. company has been warning Mac owners when they run 32-bit applications since April and had told customers in June 2017 that the now-current macOS High Sierra would be among the last editions to support 32-bit apps, no banishment date had been set until this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
“This year, we’re announcing that macOS Mojave is the last release to support 32-bit, at all,” said Sebastien Marineau, vice president of software, during a presentation at WWDC in early June. Mojave, also known as macOS 10.14, will release in the fall, most likely in September or October. Developers and users have been testing beta versions of Mojave since last month.
