An Update Regarding macOS Big Sur 11
The PEAS team is pleased to recommend the upgrade to macOS Big Sur 11 in the Enterprise.
Prior to upgrading, please ensure you have the most recent version of enterprise apps that you use, like Citrix Workspace, Cisco VPN or Microsoft Office. The latest version of these applications are available in PEAS Self Service. Also verify the compatibility of any non-enterprise apps you use prior to upgrading. 32-bit applications are no longer supported on macOS Catalina or macOS Big Sur. You can check if you’re running 32-bit apps in macOS Mojave before you download and install Big Sur. From the Apple menu > About This Mac > System Report > Legacy Software or by going to https://roaringapps.com/.
We advise everyone to upgrade and get the latest security features unless you have specialty software that is currently incompatible with macOS Big Sur. Keep in mind that Apple, and therefore MGB, only supports the current OS and two versions prior. With the release of macOS Big Sur 11, the only other supported mac OS's are macOS Mojave 10.14 and macOS Catalina 10.15. If you are running an out of date macOS, please view our webpage on how to Update Your Mac, or contact the Service Desk if you need assistance with an upgrade.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 MGB policies.
Please note: When upgrading to macOS Big Sur, any folders in the root folder will be moved to /users/shared/relocated items.
