Any reason not to upgrade MBP 2015 to Mojave?
Posted by: BobC

I have a 2015 MacBook Pro (MacBookPro11,5) that I really like, running macOS 10.13.6. I'm considering upgrading it to 10.14. A few 32-bit programs that I use often are keeping me (for now) from considering 10.15, and Catalina's new features aren't ones I'd really use.

But before I make the jump from High Sierra to Mojave, are there any reasons to hesitate, or things to be wary of when making the change? From other posts here, it seems like Mojave is pretty stable. Thanks for any advice you might have.

I took both a 2012 retina and 2016 touchbar MBP to Mojave without issue. I think some apps might not work well, so you may want to double check what you're using.

I tok a mid-2012 to mojave with no issues. Just look at your 32-bit apps and upgrade then to 64 whenever possible prior to installing mojave

The only thing keeping me on High Sierra is HFS+. Yes, High Sierra can be run on HFS+ without too much trouble. Mojave cannot run on HFS+ without extreme measures. So, for most people, I see no reason to avoid Mojave vs High Sierra.

I have had absolutely NO problems with Mojave on my Late 2015 iMac.

Do it!

You already know about the 32 bit scenario. That's the only reason not to update. Think it through!

Hi everyone,

Why the concern about 32-bit apps under Mojave? They're fine under Mojave. 32-bitt apps are an issue under Catalina. You can't run them under Catalina. That said, Mojave is dandy on my 2015 MBPr 13" and Early 2013 MBPr 15". Mojave has become my OS of choice since Apple still supports it, most non-Apple software is fine under it and it still allows use of 32-bit apps.

I second Robert M. Mojave is a good, reliable OS. Safari is still being supported and is as secure as you will get.

Mojave is going to be the next SL where MANY machines stop being updated. Worked fine on my 5 different machines updated from HS.

Sekker,

Going to be the next Snow Leopard? Nope. Already is the next Snow Leopard. I've standardized on it on all my machines. smiling smiley
