These Macs will support macOS High Sierra 10.13:
- MacBook (late 2009 and later)

- MacBook Air (2010 and later)
- MacBook Pro (2010 and later)

When macOS Sierra launched last fall, Apple dropped support for older Macs such as the late 2008 MacBook, mid/late 2007 MacBook Pro, late 2008 MacBook Air, early 2009 Mac mini, mid-2007 iMac, early 2008 Mac Pro and early 2009 Xserve.
Developers got their hands on macOS High Sierra beta yesterday. More betas are expected to follow before the public release in the fall, presumably at Apple’s expected ‘iPhone 8’ event.
