View Full Version : new iphone old macbook...

01-04-2017, 02:41 AM
Hi there, I have a Macbook from 2008 and an iphone 6. My phone and computer are not syncing up which is frustrating for me (not being a very tech savy person at all...!)

I am using Itunes 11.8 and have the latest IOS on my iphone.

Any suggestions of what to do. I am very reluctant to get a new computer because I really only use it for emails, word, watching DVDs, or surfing the net. BUT I do want to be able to store some of my photos and put music onto it.

I've downloaded Mac OS X 10.7.5 update but when I click on it it says I require 10.7...

I have an external harddrive and have backed up my computer, making more space.

I would really appreciate any advice here.

Welcome to our forums.

Your 2008 MacBook is too old to run the latest version of iTunes which you need to sync with your iPhone 6. You need a newer Mac so you can run a later version of OS X that also supports the latest version of iTunes.
