College Macs using macOS 10.x

LITS has received reports of Panopto failing to run on certain College Macs due to using an outdated version of macOS. All versions of macOS 10.15 and older were considered unsupported as of September 2022.

These devices are not receiving new security updates and are at an increased risk of being compromised by malware and attackers.


As of today (January 18th, 2023), LITS has pushed a command to all devices running macOS 10.15 and older. This command will automatically download a macOS update that community members should install at their earliest availability.

LITS will be contacting individual users of any College device running macOS 10.15 and older via our ticketing system — so be on the lookout for an email from! Don’t hesitate to send any questions or concerns to the Help Desk at or 610-526-7440.
