Status of SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app 64-bit support
(Last updated in May 2018)
Does the current SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app version 8.1.0 run on macOS 10.13 High Sierra?
Answer: Yes, our latest Mac Desktop runs fine on all macOS versions from (and including) 10.8 Mountain Lion up to macOS Sierra and High Sierra.
Is SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app a 32-bit or 64-bit app? When do you plan to make it 64-bit compliant?
Answer: The app is 32-bit for now. We will be updating it to become 64-bit in time for the 32-bit cutoff date in fall of 2018, likely several months prior.
I heard macOS High Sierra will soon block any 32-bit apps, such as SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app. Is this a problem?
Answer: No, please note the known January 2018 & June 2018 cutoff dates for 32-bit Mac apps only apply to new & existing apps in Mac App Store (former date for new apps, latter date for ALL Mac Store apps). These cutoff dates do not affect any non-Mac App Store apps such as our SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app. Thus our Mac Desktop app is not affected by these, and will keep working in/after January 2018 and after June 2018 too.
As of April/May 2018, I am getting a message that SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app I use is not optimized for my Mac. Is this a problem I should be worried about?
Answer: No, please note this is just a warning/information message you are getting and not any error or immediate issue. All 32-bit apps will keep working on all Mac OS versions available as of May 2018, including latest macOS Sierra & High Sierra. Please note macOS 10.14 (code-name not yet known) will come in the fall of 2018 and require all Mac apps to be 64-bit apps. As of this month (April 2018) we are already working on making our Mac Desktop app a 64-bit app and plan to release it in the coming months, well in time for macOS 10.14 release.
