Not able to update to 2021 Creative Cloud apps on iMac 2011

It seems I can't update to the new suite of Creative Cloud apps (specifically InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop) because my iMac is no longer compatible.

It is running os 10.13.6, or High Sierra, and I gather the recent update needs 10.14, or Mojave?

Mojave will not instal on my mac - there do appear to be some suggested ways around it online, but they seem a bit dodgy. 

So, if I want to update my apps legitimately, do I have to now buy a new computer?!

I just wanted to double check this, and find out if there is an official way around this that won't risk any of my work, etc.

Thanks.

"So, if I want to update my apps legitimately, do I have to now buy a new computer?!" Yes, if those are the system requirements and you can't meet them. There is no official way round it, but you can continue to run the old apps as long as you want. Apple are driving change very fast. Catalina through out all old apps, and Apple have said they will do it all over again in 2 years.
