Updated: macOS High Sierra (10.13) and Your College Computer

Posted January 29th, 2018 at 12:00 pm.

Apple released the newest version of macOS (no longer OS X!), macOS High Sierra (10.13) in September. In keeping with recent practice, Apple has made the upgrade available from the Mac App Store free of charge.

At this time we are recommending upgrades to High Sierra (10.13).  In particular if you are running OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or older, you should upgrade as soon as possible. 

If you are comfortable doing so and you have an Apple ID, you can go to the App Store on your Mac and download High Sierra.  As always, ensure your files are backed up and you have an hour or two free for the upgrade.

If you encounter an issue or would prefer to have assistance, please contact the Help Desk at help@brynmawr.edu, or 610-526-7440.

Please keep in mind that if you regularly use more than one College Mac, each of them will need this upgrade.
