Here are 235 apps that are not compatible with macOS Catalina

1 min read

The official version of macOS Catalina was released last week. The new version brings a lot of exciting improvements, but the compatibility issue also dismissed some of the users who were originally planning to upgrade. Since this release, macOS Catalina (10.15) no longer supports 32-bit applications, which is the first version of macOS that only supports 64-bit applications, which means that a significant number of old applications will not be available in the new system.

Recently, an iOS developer discovered that a resource package named IncompatibleAppsList.bundle inside macOS Catalina lists a total of 235 application lists that are not compatible with macOS Catalina /Library/Apple/Library/Bundles/.

According to reports, this list is used to remind users of installed applications that are not compatible with the new system during the installation of Catalina. Here is an example of a reminder:

Transmit: this version of Transmit is not compatible with this version of macOS.

List some of the applications that deserve attention:

  • Transmit 4.1.7
  • 1Password 2.12.2
  • iStats Menu 2.9
  • Box Sync 4.0
  • QuickBooks 2015
  • SugarSync 1.0
  • Default Folder X 4.3.10
  • VMWare Fusion 3.1.4
  • Creative Cloud
  • Parallels 2.5
