Support for macOS Big Sur (macOS 11)


Big Sur, Apple's newest operating system, was released Thursday, November 12. The Help Desk has completed testing, and the operating system is now available to install on University managed Macs. 


For faculty and staff personally owned Macs and student computers, we recommend upgrading to Big Sur. Prior to upgrading, we recommend that you have a backup that you can restore your computer to if the upgrade fails. In addition, you should allow at least 45-60 minutes for the upgrade to complete, and do not restart the computer while the upgrade is installing, even if it appears to be frozen.

For University managed Macs that are running an older version of macOS, you can upgrade to Big Sur via Self Service, located in your dock or the Applications folder on your Mac.
