An Update Regarding Apple's macOS Sierra
On Tuesday, September 20th, 2016, Apple is releasing their next Operating System (OS) for Mac laptops & desktops, macOS Sierra. At this time, we recommend you do not upgrade your Mac as this upgrade may impact your ability to use enterprise services such as Email, VPN and more.
As with prior Mac OS releases, vendors will release new software for their products to integrate with Sierra, and we expect updates will be required for plugins such as Java. Further information regarding compatibility with Partners services will be broadcast in the coming weeks.
Please keep in mind that Apple, and therefore Partners, only supports the current OS and two versions prior. With the release of Sierra, the only supported Mac OSs will be macOS Sierra, Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11 or Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.
If you are running a Mac OS older than Yosemite, please view our webpage on how to Update Your Mac, and 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 and do not comply with Partners policies.
