Apple just told the world it has no idea who the Mac is for

You know what’s even worse? You can’t use the old Macbook Pro’s to do software development anymore. I have a machine from 2012 that works great, but macOS Sierra won’t install on it. XCode requires Sierra to be able to upload apps. So now, as a developer, I have to drop $2,000 on a new laptop “just because”. I hate tossing a perfectly-working laptop into the garbage, but that’s what I feel like Apple is asking me to do.

In the Microsoft and Linux lands, a 10-year-old PC can still run things like Visual Studio 2015 or Atom and Node just fine. Why does Apple artificially limit me? It’s really upsetting, and it makes me want to get off of the Apple and iOS platform.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
