Apple has started sending out emails to customers who continue to use older 32-bit versions of its pro apps on their Macs. The company informs them in the email that these pro apps will no longer work on macOS High Sierra. 

The company notes that its older pro apps like Logic Studio and Final Cut Studio will not launch on Macs running macOS High Sierra. Apple recommends customers to upgrade to the latest version of its pro apps which are compatible with High Sierra.

Below is the email that Apple is sending out to its selected customers:

Our records show that you may be using applications included in Logic Studio. We wanted to share some important compatibility information about these applications and macOS High Sierra, which will be available this fall.

Older versions of Apple pro music applications — including applications in Logic Studio — will not launch on a computer running macOS High Sierra.

New versions of Apple pro music applications — including Logic Pro X and MainStage 3 — are compatible with macOS High Sierra. You can purchase these applications on the App Store.

macOS 10.13 High Sierra is the last version of the OS to support 32-bit apps, with Apple phasing out support for 32-bit apps from the Mac App Store starting from January 2018. Despite 32-bit apps being supported under High Sierra, Apple’s email confirms that they won’t launch under the OS.

macOS High Sierra is all about underlying changes. It brings APFS to Macs, Metal 2 API, an improved Photos and Mail app, a faster browsing experience on Safari, and more.
