  • Mac

    macOS Mojave is installed on all new Macs and is available to upgrade to on most current model Macs.

    The University of Adelaide offers software to suit the current and previous two versions of macOS (Mojave, High Sierra and Sierra). We recommend upgrading to the latest possible macOS for your hardware as there is limited or no support for older macOS versions.

  • 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

    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

    University Owned Mac: Ensure you are enrolled in Mac Self Service and follow the Upgrade to macOS Mojave self-help guide.

    Personally Owned Mac: Please refer to Apple's How to Upgrade guide.
