Can my Mac Pro (Mid 2010) use Mojave? Right now I am using 10.13.6.

  • What do you mean by "use"? Could be "supported by apps" (no) or "can be made to run" (yes). If the latter you could consider something more recent than Mojave.

No. High Sierra is the limit1 for a 2010 Mac... unless you go for an unofficial dosdude1 type hack.

Note that if you have a Metal capable GPU then Mojave might work on a 2010 Mac Pro.

1 See Wikipedia for the official supported platforms against the Mac models: High Sierra, Mojave


You can 'officially' put Mojave on a 2010 Mac Pro, once you put a Metal2 GPU in it. The barrier to upgrade drops away, no further hack required.

Such as an AMD[ATI] Radeon HD 7950 will work. Make sure to get one that's already Mac-flashed, otherwise you won't be able to see the screen before login or use FileVault.

Avoid NVidia, they don't have drivers after High Sierra. AMD drivers are built into the OS.

Once the card is in, the update to Mojave will require a firmware update as part of the OS update. The instructions say to hold the power button until it flashes - in fact you need to hold it longer; it will eventually reboot itself, then you can let go. This took a lot of trial & error at the time.
