macOS 10.15 Catalina
On Monday, October 7th, 2019, Apple released their latest version of the System (OS) for Mac laptops & desktops, macOS Catalina. At this time, we recommend you do not upgrade your Mac as this may impact your ability to use enterprise services.
Like prior Apple OS releases, the expectation is the first minor version of Catalina (version 10.15.1) will be stable for the Enterprise. Further information on compatibility with Partners services will be broadcast in the coming weeks.
Presently we are experiencing issues with Trend Micro Security (Antivirus). We expect an update by Trend in the coming weeks which will be tested by the PEAS team. Further guidance to follow.
If you have upgraded already, there are 3 major items to be aware of:
- You must update Citrix from the PEAS Self Service Application to ensure Partners services delivered from Citrix, such as Epic or Internet Explorer, continue to function.
- Citrix - Citrix Receiver should be replaced with Citrix Workspace 220.127.116.11 in Self Service.
- VPN - Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client Version 4.800175 also needs to be upgraded from the PEAS Self Service Application.
- Any 32-bit applications will no longer run under Catalina. Prior to upgrading, you will need to check your applications for compatibility.
We also recommend making a backup prior to any upgrade, in case you need to downgrade later. Apple, and therefore Partners, only support the current OS and two versions prior. With the release of macOS Catalina 10.15, the only other supported macOSs will be macOS Mojave 10.14 and macOS High Sierra 10.13 If you are running an out of date macOS, Update Your Mac, or contact the Service Desk if you need assistance with an upgrade. Older Mac operating systems introduce risk to your data and the enterprise as they are not patched for security vulnerabilities, nor do they comply with Partners policies.
