The new MacBook Pro 16-Inch comes preloaded with macOS Catalina 10.15, which removes support for all 32-bit apps. Yuck! :roll:

I think this is going to be a toxic surprise for a lot of MacBook Pro users that were anxiously awaiting the 16-inch model only to find their 32-bit apps (and most apps in the Mac app store right now) won't work anymore. This is crushing my excitement for the machine.


There's articles online saying it's possible to perform a downgrade of 10.15 to 10.14 on the MacBook Pro 16-inch, but I haven't heard anyone try it yet. I heard you may lose support for certain things (graphics drivers and some touch-bar functionality). So outside of emulating 32-bit Mac apps, does anyone have other solutions?


In addition, until WINE (Windows virtualization) is supported as a 64-bit app, this is ruining a lot of folks virtualization dreams on Mac.
