Apple has announced that it will officially release macOS High Sierra, 10.13, on September 25, 2017. Information Technology Services (ITS), in collaboration with the Mac Advisory Committee, is currently evaluating High Sierra for on-campus use. This includes testing its compatibility with enterprise applications and UNCG standard hardware and network configurations.

All Mac users are advised to wait a minimum of 30 days before updating to High Sierra, to allow time for the evaluation to be complete. Updating earlier may result in complications and affect the level of support that can be provided by ITS and distributed technical staff.

At this time all Mac systems should be running the latest version of Sierra, currently 10.12.6.  To check the version of macOS on your system go to the Apple menu and select About This Mac.  If the system is not running 10.12.6, please go to the App Store and update your system.  Having your system up to date will help when it is time for the upgrade to High Sierra. Please visit Apple’s website for hardware requirements necessary to support Sierra and High Sierra.

You can continue to find new information about High Sierra, and other Mac related information on The Mac Support Hub.  Updates will be posted as information becomes available.
