  • Not an iPad Pro Review: Why iPadOS Still Doesn't Get the Basics Right

    You may have success running new enough macOS with OpenCore Legacy Patcher. I use it to run macOS Sonora (current latest version) on a 2015 MacBook Pro (Intel) and it works fine. It’s technically a MacBook Pro 12,1 and I spoof a MacBook Pro 15,2 and mostly all the features I want from the upgraded macOS like handoff etc work. Features that require updated macOS like Contact Key Verification do work.

    Some features that require ARM processors don’t work; for instance, I can’t install or run iOS/iPadOS apps from the App Store, unfortunately, but I don’t really need to do that very badly.

    At a guess I would say probably using OCLP - https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher - lots of life left in old Mac’s using that tool !

    I had this issue, too. But luckily, I've got a solution. First, you'll need to check your MacOS Sonoma version. If you're using 14.1 beta, this method will NOT work. In such cases, I recommend installing the official 14.0. Thankfully, this commit (https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher/commit/1aee2e5dfa12d10e218a51e4151ac2e96705ae9e) solved the problem! However, the latest OCLP 1.0.1 still doesn't have it. To use it, you can build OCLP from code or use the OCLP Nightly link found here. After you find the nightly link and download OCLP, build it onto your MBP, and after rebooting, install the patches. If you look carefully, you'll see that 'experimental T1 Patches' will be available in the list of post-installation patches.

    From what I've assessed reading other posts, Monterey (Ventura has USB & stability issues) with OCLP 0.6.7 is the most stable install for this device (have not yet seen any reports using OCLP 1.0+, although happy to see some new non-Metal fixes going in). This is a bit of a bummer, as Monterey will not likely receive updates past end of 2024 (next year).

    I'm not taking a position on OCLP being trustworthy or not, but at least the project appears to be 100% open source [0], which is more than we can say about Apple.

    Have you explored https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher?

    I have used it before and, in my experience and everyone else I know who has used it, the vast majority of time the newer versions run absolutely fine with no issues. Occasionally some newer features don't work, but I'd but confident that 2015/2017 iMacs would be able to run the latest version no problem.
