CleanMyMac X is ending support for OS X 10.10 - 10.11 (Yosemite & El Capitan)

Going forward, CleanMyMac X will not be updated on two operating systems — OS X Yosemite and El Capitan. If you’re using the application on a machine running one of those systems, please read on.

What is changing?

CleanMyMac X will stop receiving regular updates on OS X 10.10 and 10.11. Though, the Malware Database will be updated on a regular basis to detect new viruses and malware within Malware Removal and real-time malware monitor in CleanMyMac X Menu.

Why is CleanMyMac X ending support for older OS versions?

Discontinuing support for OS X Yosemite and El Capitan is not an easy decision for us, but there are multiple drivers:

  • Apple doesn’t support older OS X versions, so they no longer receive security updates.
  • We cannot guarantee the stable performance of the application on unsupported systems.
  • Technical restrictions don’t allow us to add new features that are available for more recent versions of macOS.

We believe that ending support for OS X 10.10 and 10.11 will bring us more flexibility in developing and supporting new awesome functionality.

What does it mean for me?

CleanMyMac X will continue working on OS X Yosemite and El Capitan, but you will not receive fresh updates with new features or improvements. Still, we’ll provide a stable CleanMyMac X build containing regular Malware Database updates essential for protecting your Mac from various threats. Also, please note that subscription plans remain valid and will be renewed after the current one expires.

Our recommendations 🙌

As older operating systems receive no security or stability updates from Apple, we encourage you to upgrade your Mac to one of the supported versions. This way, you’ll protect your Mac and data from any potential vulnerabilities and get access to a myriad of cool features every new operating system offers. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the smooth and stable performance of your applications on newer versions of macOS.
