LP 10.5 No longer available from the App Store??

Tue Nov 17, 2020 8:19 am

Hi all,

I'm running Mojave which is the latest OS I can run on my Mac Pro. Today went to upgrade to LPX 10.5 but it's disappeared from the App Store. I was previously getting notifications of its availability as an update but since the realise of 10.6 which requires Catalina the 10.5 option has disappeared.

Anyone any idea how to find a back door to 10.5 update on the App Store?

All the best.

Nope, 10.5 is gone.
I'm on Mojave myself. Only 10.6 is showing.

It's supposed to (at least that was the behaviour for the last years), but it doesn't seem to be behaving like this across the board at the moment - not just Logic, but Garageband, and possibly other things.

Whether this is a temporary issue/glitch, or an intentional new behaviour is not known at this point...

If you try to install 10.6 on Mojave, it should automatically install 10.5.1 instead. Did you actually try to install 10.6 on Mojave?

Might be an issue in the App Store. It should always show the latest version, which is compatible with the running version of macOS.

I think it may have in the past, but now it just shows the latest version, but like I said...if you just try to install the latest one, you will get a dialog complaining and then it will install the last version that is known to work on your MacOS version.

I just tried updating on my Mojave Mac Pro with Logic 10.4.8.
Update can't be completed because it needs 10.15.
So there you have it.

what happens if you remove LogicPro from your system (compress it first), then try the above?

sorry I can't be more help, I am in the middle of testing out an OpenCore Catalina setup.. Sounds like Apple is buggering it up in their effort to push people forward. I can tell you also that on Catalina, when I attempted to install GarageBand, it said something about needing BigSur, but then downloaded the highest version available for my hardware... of course after that, it started giving me annoying notifications that I need to update GarageBand, even though Catalina won't allow it. And I can't get rid of a notification to update to BigSur either...and my understanding is that Apple has gone out of their way to prevent anyone from being able to turn that off.

So basically as usual...they are burning the trail behind while they forge ahead.. I think in some cases they don't mean to burn the trail behind but they're so focused on ahead that the trail burns behind them anyway.

I just tested it to see what happens to let you guys know my experience.
I already have 10.5.1 on my Mojave laptop, so I'm good!
My Mac Pro stays put where it is.

So how does one upgrade to 10.5?
I just got a graphic card that allows me to upgrade my Mac Pro 2012 to Mojave in the hope of running Logic 10.5

I had to uninstall Logic 10.4, restart the mac, go in the app store under my purchases and download last compatible version.

a) An extended question, if I buy Logic in April 2021 on my Mojave.

Will I be able to download and install it, on the
Bought page for Mojave ?

b) Or does a new buyer need to upgrade to Catalina ?

MY HARDWARE:
I have a custom upgraded 2012 13" Non-Retina Macbook Pro i5 16gb Ram, 1 TB Crucial SSD - with Mojave
and
also a standard 2012 15" Retina Macbook Pro i7 8 GB Ran, 512 SSD - with Catalina - available for a while.

Thought about running it on the 15 inch i7 first and
then on the 13 inch i5.

That's a very good question, you should do a live chat with apple to confirm that.
Or take a guess and if it doesn't work ask for a refund, I've been able to get refunds from the app store before so it's an option.
