    The 1.0.0 version of OpenCore Legacy Patcher has been released, allowing a number of Macs that don’t officially support macOS Sonoma to now run the operating system.
    Apple’s macOS operating system updates often drop support for older Mac and MacBook models. Some Mac users therefore cannot take advantage of features found in the newer releases, unless they upgrade their hardware…

    The list of models that can use OpenCore Legacy Patcher 1.0.0 to run macOS Sonoma includes:

    2008 to 2019 12-inch and 13-inch MacBooks
    2009 to 2017 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air
    2008 to 2017 13-inch to 17-inch MacBook Pro
    2009 to 2017 Mac mini
    2007 to 2018 20-inch to 27-inch iMac
    2008 to 2018 Mac Pro
    2008 to 2010 Xserve…

    OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher 1.0.0

    ..Main limitation with Sonoma:

    Lack of hardware support for the T1 Security Chip
    macOS Sonoma and T1 security chip support #1103
    Applicable for 2016 and 2017 Touch Bar-based MacBook Pros
    We hope as time passes, we’ll be able to tackle this issue…
