MacBook Pro

Incompatible App Updates


I own an old yet still very reliable:

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)

2.4 GHz Intel Core i5

16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB

Incompatible App Updates

I get the message "4 Incompatible Updates" when I choose to "Software Update" via "About This Mac".

They are:

  1. iMovie
  2. Pages
  3. Numbers
  4. Keynote

Incompatible App Updates

I understand my MacBook Pro is old but it is still reliable.

Is there way around this?

Can Apple just remove the notification of those "4 Incompatible App Updates"?

I am thinking about uninstalling and then reinstalling the apps mentioned above but fear I might not be able to install them again.

I already installed 16 GB of RAM and changed my HDD to an SDD so that High Sierra will run smoothly and it did.

I was hoping that I can now run Catalina but sadly it says that I can not.

Although again the download for Catalina is available.

Incompatible App Updates

Why is Apple allowing these notifications to exist?

Is it to force people to buy their new products?

I have old iPhones that are incompatible with new iOS and yet they do not give notifications with "New Incompatible iOS Available" or "Incompatible App Updates".

Hoping to hear from you guys.
