I recently confirmed that Apple has dropped support for my mid-2010 MacBook Pro (i.e., I cannot upgrade to Mojave.)

Does anyone know when Apple will drop support for High Sierra? I'd like to know how long I have to come up with a solution before my MBP is exposed to security vulnerabilities.

    Best guess, another 3 years. No-one really knows, but they tend to keep updating the last 3 versions. They claim 5 years active, 5 years passive support for any device, so another 3 years would exceed that. – Tetsujin Oct 31 '18 at 19:59

    @Tetsujin I think that'd make a great answer! There's some nice resources which corroborate this, such as eshop.macsales.com/guides/Mac_OS_X_Compatibility – grg Oct 31 '18 at 21:26

MacSales supported OS list would seem to corroborate that - Mac OS Support Guide
