macOS Ventura App Compatibility
Happy macOS release week, everyone!
Earlier this week, macOS 13 Ventura was released. It’s a point-oh release, so you might want to sit this out a bit and wait for 13.1, as is common practice. (My main developer machine is running Big Sur, and I won’t be updating for a couple of weeks more, maybe not before December.)
No matter how early an adopter you are – I’m happy to report that all my apps are “Ready for Ventura”, as you say:
- The Archive requires macOS 10.11 or later,
- WordCounter requires macOS 10.12 or later,
- TableFlip requires macOS 10.10 or later,
- Move! requires macOS 10.12 or later.
And all run fabulously on Ventura!
macOS 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan, 10.12 Sierra Support
With heavy heart, I’ll eventually have to drop some of the older macOS versions.
Apple’s latest version of their own app development tool drops support for macOS 10.12 or older. (Planned obsolescence or sane practice?) I can get by with an older version of their tool for a while, but eventually, I’ll have to bump the minimum required macOS version to 10.13 High Sierra, which was released 2017.
I’m proud to support older macOS versions, to be frank. TableFlip runs on an operating system from 8 years ago! But the user base and thus the need for this is minuscule.
So some time next year, most likely, I’ll be bumping the minimum OS version to all apps. And maybe even ship a new major version, including some larger overhauls.
Until then, enjoy your apps!
