Information Technology Services (ITS), in collaboration with the MAC Advisory Committee, announced on October 4, 2016 that the evaluation of macOS Sierra for on-campus use had been completed and that upgrading to macOS Sierra was approved. We are now advising that all clients proceed with the upgrade to the latest version of macOS Sierra, currently 10.12.4. Please visit Apple’s website for hardware requirements necessary to support macOS Sierra.

Caveat concerning Adobe Creative Suite: If you are using Adobe Creative Suite products versions CS3 through CS6, you should not upgrade to macOS Sierra until after you update your Adobe products to the latest version. (For more information, see Installing Creative Suite on macOS Sierra.) If you experience problems after upgrading to macOS Sierra, please contact 6-TECH to log a service request.

Updates on the use of macOS Sierra at UNCG, including known issues, will be posted on the MAC Support Hub website as they become available. If you have questions or need more information, please contact 6-TECH at (336) 256-TECH (8324) or 6-TECH@uncg.edu.
