Minecraft on Mac OS has a bug that causes Minecraft to crash on launch, this is a temporary fix until Mojang tell us what causes the bug and fixes it.

- In your Minecraft launcher, go to "Launch Options"
- Click on your Minecraft 18w07a profile,
- Deselect "resolution"
- Go to the "News" tab, press play
- Minecraft should start up and you should be able to play in the new snapshot

This just started happening to me after years of no issues. The latest launcher, which updated itself, must be the problem, since I had no issues with the previous launcher.

That having been said, in launch options, the resolution was already deselected and it still crashes every time I try to play.

Yeah, I think it is the launcher itself as well.

This is the common problem. It is actually happening because of Operating system environment and which version you use. If you failed to install this game to your mac then take help of apple support uk

No it is not.

I've had Minecraft installed on my MacBook for 6 years and I've never had this problem before and from what I've read this is not caused by one issue.
