Hi Chris,

We are about to order some new iMacs to run MWorks. If Apple is consistent with the past, we'll need to run Mojave on them and downgrading will not be possible. Any predictions for when the graphics issues will be fixed?

Thanks,
Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, the latest iMac's were released this spring, so there's pretty much no chance they'll run any pre-Mojave version of macOS.

    If you need new machines now, you might consider buying refurbished ones. The previous generation of iMac's was released in mid 2017, so they should be able to run macOS 10.12 or 10.13.

    Alternatively, if you only use the built-in display (and don't attach an external one) on an iMac running macOS 10.14, you shouldn't see any graphics issues. However, that would require you to run MWClient from a separate Mac.

    Any predictions for when the graphics issues will be fixed?

    My hope is that the issue will be fixed in the next major release of macOS (10.15), which will be out this fall. However, whether or not that happens is entirely up to Apple.

    Cheers,
    Chris
