Sierra – the new Mac operating system

Apple has recently released its new macOS operating system 10.12, codename Sierra.

It introduces new features and improvements, including the Siri personal assistant and a more consistent experience when working with other Apple devices.

The ITS Apple team has been testing the beta releases of Sierra to confirm that it is compatible with our network and services. Although lab software will be tested on Sierra as part of the preparations for Semester 1, 2017 – full compatibility with all software cannot be confirmed at this early stage.

For important software, we advise you check the vendor’s website to confirm if your installed version is compatible with Sierra before proceeding to upgrade your Mac. Known issues to date include compatibility with Matlab and Finder search functionality.
