Updating from mac 10 1 5

A friend of mine has a desktop Apple computer (I googled Apple computer images and it looks like an i Mac). When we tried to upgrade it the OS reported that there are no updates available.

…do you mean that the i Mac was bought brand new (i.e., the newest model available in stores in the 2009-2010 time frame), or did you potentially buy an older model (i.e., from 2007-2008) in the 2009-2010 time frame?

Because you have OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard) currently, and assuming that you never your OS X, you can narrow down which i Mac model you have.

Apple also sells Lion and Mountain Lion from the web store if you need an upgrade that isn't the latest and greatest.

Your first practical step is to go to and find in support the article on indentifying your Mac to determine the hardware capabilities before spending any time or money on incompatible upgrades.

But the software's biggest problems are fundamental: Pressure-sensitive 3D Touch on compatible i Phones pops up for some apps but not others and menus open slowly.
