Mac OS Mojave download

Apple first unveiled macOS Mojave in 2018. It has been years until now. And unremitting new macOS versions are rolled out to replace the old ones. So, can you still download macOS Mojave?

The answer is yes. If you are a Mac user whose device was purchased in mid-2012 and subsequent years, you can directly download the full macOS Mojave installer from the App Store.

However, if your Mac runs newer macOS and you can't find macOS Mojave from the App Store, where to download macOS Mojave?

We're here to help you. This macOS Mojave download database offers direct links for downloading macOS 10.14 Mojave. It will walk you through downloading the PKG file used for compatible Macs and the ISO file and DMG file used for unsupported Mac models and Windows PCs.

Check Mac OS Mojave compatibility

If your Mac model supports macOS Mojave, you can download Mojave from the App Store. To get details about your Mac model, you can click the Apple menu > About This Mac. Then, verify if your Mac is on the following list of Mac OS Mojave compatible Mac models.

The checklist of macOS Mojave compatible Mac devices:

  • MacBook (Early 2015 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Mid 2012 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid-2012 or newer)
  • Mac Mini (Late 2012 or newer)
  • iMac (Late 2012 or newer)

 Warning:  If your Mac model comes with macOS Catalina or later, it can't support macOS Mojave.

Clean up  your Mac

Downloading the macOS Mojave installer seems an easy task but not. A successful macOS installer download requires a lot, including enough free space on your Mac for storing the installer, a stable network connection, a compatible Mac, and more.

Among them, enough available space on your Mac is most necessary. It would be a shame if you've spent a lot of time downloading macOS Mojave only to end up storing it for insufficient space.

Therefore, before starting to get the Mojave installer, you should clear up the useless and outdated files on your Mac to release more space. It would be a tough task to find out the unwanted, duplicate, useless, and all other types of junk on your Mac. If you don't want to waste time on it, why not use a Mac cleaner?

iBoysoft DiskGeeker is a disk management tool that contains a Mac cleaning feature. Its Clean Junk function can help you quickly scan junk files on your Mac and display them in categories. Then, you can remove them only with a click.

Here's how:

  1. Download, install, and open iBoysoft DiskGeeker on your Mac.
  2. Select the user data volume (Macintosh HD - Data or macOS - Data) on the left sidebar and then click "Clean Junk" on the right side toolbar.

  3. Wait for the scanning process to complete, you'll see the junk files on your Mac listed by category.

Once you've cleaned up your Mac and are ready, you can follow this guide to download the macOS Mojave full installer, macOS Mojave ISO file, or macOS Mojave DMG file.
