Can I get CleanMyMac 3 on macOS 10.15 Catalina?

Unfortunately, no. MacPaw no longer develops and updates CleanMyMac 3, so we're not adding support for newer operating systems. CleanMyMac 3 only works on Mac operating systems 10.9-10.14, so macOS Mojave is the last system on which the CleanMyMac 3 can open.

Good news: there’s still a number of ways to keep your Mac clean and swift, including a much smarter CleanMyMac X

Why doesn’t CleanMyMac 3 support macOS Catalina?

CleanMyMac 3 was released in 2015 and, at the time, it used the latest tech achievements. However, four years is quite a long period for the ever-changing software world. CleanMyMac 3 is still a reliable cleanup solution for the operating systems it was designed for (Mac operating systems 10.9-10.14), but adapting it to a newer macOS  requires fundamental upgrades.

So, instead of rebuilding CleanMyMac 3, we’ve created much more powerful and forward-thinking CleanMyMac X. Since its official release, it has already gotten countless improvements and major updates; and we aren’t going to stop.

Anyway, you’re a user of CleanMyMac 3 who considers upgrading to macOS Catalina: let’s look through all the options you have to keep your Mac in shape. 

Switch to CleanMyMac X at 50% discount

CleanMyMac X fully supports macOS 10.15 and newer operating systems (including Ventura) — and is ready to clean, protect, and speed it up. Hopefully, you’ll be pleased to find out that owners of CleanMyMac 3 get a special upgrade offer:

  • 50% discount on a CleanMyMac X license, or
  • 50% discount on the first subscription year of CleanMyMac X. 

Applying your discount is as easy as visiting the upgrade page and specifying the email you used to purchase your CleanMyMac 3. More information is here

Note that you can try new CleanMyMac X for free.

Do periodic cleanups manually

CleanMyMac provides unique and sophisticated functions that simplify your Mac life, but you can do some cleanup on your own. Here we’ve prepared some useful tips and ideas on how to tidy up your Mac: How to Clean Up Mac?

Carry on with CleanMyMac 3 on macOS Mojave

Newer macOS versions bring not only new cool features but also some security and privacy improvements. That’s why you should think twice before deciding not to upgrade the operating system. However, if you feel that neither you nor your Mac is ready for this transition, you can stick to macOS Mojave, which is also the latest macOS version supported by CleanMyMac 3. 

So if you continue using macOS 10.9 to 10.14, CleanMyMac 3 remains your reliable companion in cleaning and maintenance of your Mac. Be sure, we will continue supporting it within the specified macOS versions.
