This is a fundamental misunderstanding of patents. All patents have prior art. Indeed they list the prior art in the patent. Patents take something that is already patented, and add some new things. Patents are never for something that is entirely new, the always build on what came before.

A 2010 Mac is not "recent".

As a matter of fact I was developing iOS apps on a 2012 Mac until last year. Then I had to work on the Android version on one, and the Mac wasn't good enough. It would compile, but it took 10 minutes to do so. Obviously that's not practical. It's Android that required me to upgrade my Mac, not iOS development.
