If you are using older version of macOS, you might want to update your mac’s operating system if you want to use the online store as Apple has changed the requirements for logging into the service.
This latest news came via a report from Mac Otakara in Japan which reported that in case users want to sign-in to the app store, the will need to run OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite or newer and Safari version 10.1.2 or later. If you are one of the users with older version of macOS, you will get an error messaging saying “Unsupported Browser Version” when you try to log into the store.
Although generally there are ways to bypass such issues, it seems that you can’t do it as most of the browsers supported by the operating system are outdated at the time. While we don’t know for sure what prompted the change, AppleInsider has suggested that the company introduced the change as it continues to build on its commitment towards user privacy.
During this year’s WWDC, Apple introduced several changes to improve the security and privacy of users. For instance, when iOS 13 becomes available later this fall, developers will be required to use “Sign in with Apple” in case they use popular log-in methods offered by Google and Facebook.
