macOS Catalina – The Full List of 235 Incompatible Apps!

Make sure you check for incompatible apps before you upgrade to macOS Catalina, because it no longer supports 32-bit apps!

Let’s take a look at the full list of 235 incompatible apps that the macOS Catalina installer has been programmed to look for.

 

Why Are These Apps Incompatible With macOS Catalina?

While many developers have transitioned their software to 64-bit versions over the years, there are still many 32-bit apps out there.

After all, not everyone is able or willing to upgrade to the latest version of any software. There are plenty of people who are happy to stick with the software they purchased years ago.

However, macOS Catalina is the first macOS operating system to drop all support for 32-bit apps, rendering all those apps incompatible.

There is no workaround – they will not work with macOS Catalina, period.

What If My App Is In The macOS Catalina Incompatible List?

If an app you are using is listed above, then it is a 32-bit app that will not work with macOS Catalina.

You have two options at this point :

a) if you want to use macOS Catalina – you will need to uninstall that app, and replace it with a 64-bit alternative

b) if you want to continue using the app – then you should NOT upgrade to macOS Catalina. Just stick to macOS Mojave or earlier, and you will do just fine.

 

Check Your Other Apps Before Upgrading To Catalina!

It would be wise not to just rely on the list of incompatible apps that macOS Catalina recognises, because it is just a partial list of all the 32-bit apps that are still being used worldwide.

You should identify the other 32-bit apps you need to upgrade or replace, before upgrading to macOS Catalina.
