The traditional OS X disappears replaced by the new MacOS.
Which Macs are compatible with MacOS Sierra
The following Apple devices support Mac OS Sierra:

- MacBook (Late 2009 and later)
- Mac mini (2010 and later)
- MacBook Pro (2010 and later)
- Mac Pro (2010 and later)
If you are in possession of one of these Macs, especially the older ones, not saying that this is totally compatible with the new operating system, in fact, it is probable that some of the new features inserted in MacOs are not usable. At this point the obligatory question: will there be in Mac OS 12 Sierra features that do not work on my old Mac, even if it is compatible?
As in the previous release of OS X El Capitan, if the Mac was built before 2012, it will not be able to take advantage of some features like Metal Graphics framework and many of the features of the Continuity function, but the rest of the functions inserted in MacOS Sierra should go well.
When can I download MacOS Sierra?
