    Apple built in obsolescence has scrapped my Mac

    My Mac mini, that I had to buy to upload iphone apps, was made in 2009 and runs el capitan.
    However, I now have to run xCode 9 to upload programs and that needs high sierra, which it won't allow.
    Apple have confirmed that
    'Because your device is almost a decade old, it is limited in it's options for upgrading the operating system and you have the highest operating system you can install on it'
    So it appears it's now scrap and I probably have to buy a new mac every few years to keep uploading their software.
    Unless anyone knows a workaround.
    Anything to avoid giving Apple more money.

    WHOA my 2008 i7 Dell computer is going Strong - I replaced the video card about 4 years ago that's the only upgrade I have done,
    it runs Fornite at 120FPS, GTA5, Dead or Alive 5, Nier Atomata. the funny thing is that I can run a MAC emulator on my PC at 60FPS and so I can Export
    Xcode.

    Only thing my compurer looks like Craptrap from borderlands. No as cute as a mac ahahaha.

    I'll have a look at the dosdude system provided my wifi is compatible.

    Run in VM,
    I have Win 7 PC with VirtualBox, with a lot of pain I was able to install 10.11 and upgrade to High Sierra 10.13.
    Don't ask me how, it took a lot of Google help.

    There seems to be a lot of pain where apple are involved.
    I've started using macincloud.com which has been very simple apart from a whole new raft of xcode9 build issues that were not there before.
