Swift Playgrounds for Macs that cannot upgrade to macOS Ventura


We have just run into an issue with some of our students starting App Development on their MacBook Air's. Using the Mac App Store we can only install the latest version of Swift Playgrounds for Mac which is Version 4.2, which requires macOS 13 Ventura. This is fine except we have students using 2017 MacBook Air's (which I believe were still on sale until June 2019) and cannot install Ventura. It would be great if they could still install Swift Playgrounds 4.1 somehow (which they could do about 7 days ago). Can anyone provide any help with ideas?

Hi David, you may like to try asking this in the technical/deployment forum as I know there are SEs in there that may be able to help?

Hi "JJ Purton",

No offense, but that was the most unhelpful answer I've come across in all of these forums. Please refrain from sending replies like this. It gives us false positive hopes. And that, quite frankly...is unacceptable. Many people come looking for helpful answers, waiting for someone to reply to our questions. And to get a notification, a reply like this isn't helpful at all. Many people within forums would call this "clutter", or unnecessary replies.

Please keep this in mind for the future.

Have a great day!!!
