Mac Operating System Catalina Available Jan. 9 But Has Potential Compatibility Issue for Some

MacOS Catalina is a major operating system upgrade released by Apple in October 2019. It is now available via Self Service if your computer is registered in Jamf. It is important to note Catalina does not support Apple 32-bit applications. If you run 32-bit applications on a Mac, you should not upgrade until your applications are compatible. To install the upgrade, launch "University of Idaho Self Service" (the yellow "I" icon in Applications). In the menu on the left, select "Operating Systems," and then click on "Upgrade to Catalina 10.15.2" to start the upgrade. The process can take an hour or more, so be sure to begin it during a time that you won't need to use the computer. If you do not see the upgrade, your computer is not compatible with Catalina. If you do not see "University of Idaho Self Service," your computer is not registered in Jamf. You can request your computer be registered at the ITS tech support portal, support.uidaho.edu, or contact your local support staff or Technology Solutions Partner.
