macOS Sierra tested and compatible with classic Mac Pro

macOS Sierra Tested and Working on 2009/2010/2012 Mac Pro 5,1: Mac Pro good to go with Apples latest OS

We reported yesterday that early evidence seemed to indicate that Apples latest version of OS X (renamed macOS), macOS Sierra, runs absolutely fine on any Mac Pro with the 5,1 firmware.

After a great amount of interest from our clients, we’re happy to announce that we’ve tested macOS Sierra in house using our developers account, and indeed 2009 (upgraded to 5,1 firmware), 2010 & 2012 Mac Pro 5,1 systems all run the latest OS absolutely fine.

Again, we wouldn’t recommend installing macOS Sierra on your Mac Pro until all the bugs have been worked out, but it’s always nice to see Apple continuing to support the Mac Pro 5,1.

Check the screengrabs from our 5,1 systems below (for some reason the 2010 and 5,1 identifiers don’t show in the developers beta, but the systems tested are a 2009 upgraded to 5,1 and a 2010 5,1):

  1. Thank you so much for testing, really appreciated! I was worried by the Apple specs that my 2009 Mac Pro won´t be able to run Sierra.
