macOS Security Information
macOS Sierra – End of Support, September 2019
As of September 2019, Apple will discontinue support for macOS 10.12 Sierra. We highly recommend upgrading to macOS Mojave before this date. With a majority of Mac owners already upgraded, you can expect minimal disruption.
macOS 10.12 Sierra and previous systems will be considered unsupported and represent a significant security vulnerability. These systems may be subject to restricted or disabled network and service access.
macOS Mojave is a free upgrade available from the App Store providing the latest security features and performance enhancements. Apple and Information Technology & Digital Services recommend users are running the latest operating system when possible.
How to upgrade
