This is some App Store weirdness. What does it mean?

When I got my new M1 mini, I found that I had to "adopt" various Apple applications (Pages, Numbers, Photos and Garage Band come to mind - pretty sure there were five in total) before I could download them onto new Mac.

I'm guessing Macs no longer ship with these apps preinstalled and you must "adopt" them from an installation on a previously-owned Mac to install them on the new Mac.



It is what it is.

I distinctly remember having to download and install them on my new mini.

There seem to be a lot of complaints about getting Apple's "You Have 5 Apps To Adopt notification.

In some cases the apps were already installed but they still got the notification.

Some have found relief by uninstalling and reinstalling the the named apps, other found there was a macOS update waiting, and doing it fixed the problem.

This complaint goes back several years apparently, and some M1 owners are among them.

I faintly recall downloading them as well.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
