Your Mac must meet these requirements (relatively modest, we hope) to work with the Setapp:
- macOS version:
- Sierra 10.12 (minimum)
- Catalina 10.15 and later (recommended)
- Free disk space: around 300 Mb for the Setapp app
- Internet connection
Every year, Apple releases a new version of macOS (formerly OS X) and usually maintains them for three years.
Since Apple stopped supporting OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) on August 1, 2017, and OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) on December 1, 2018, we are driven to end our support for them as well.
You'll need at least macOS 10.12 (Sierra) to launch Setapp on your Mac. However, Apple has ended support of:
- macOS 10.12 (Sierra) on October 1, 2019,
- macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) on December 1, 2020,
- and 10.14 (Mojave) on October 25, 2021.
If your Mac uses macOS 10.12-10.14, an optimized version of Setapp is downloaded for you automatically. These versions receive only security updates and might differ from the latest Setapp in its look & feel, features, and workflows. So, your experience may vary from the one described in this Knowledge Base.
Apps in Setapp have their own minimum requirements and might not be updated or work on versions earlier than macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
iOS version on your mobile device
Every mobile app in Setapp has its requirements for an iOS version; we list these requirements in this article. To make your work more comfortable, we'll soon display the required iOS versions right on the app pages in Setapp on Mac.
