Apple updates expected to occur in January

Posted on November 26, 2014

Faculty/Staff -

Last month Apple released OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” via the Mac App Store. As previously communicated, the Information Technology department has been performing tests to confirm the supported services are working as designed. As has been reported by Apple, some devices have experienced issues with wireless connections and email issues. Apple has already released an update to remediate these issues without complete success. Using Apple’s history on updates, we are expecting a much larger update to come out sometime in January which we hope will resolve the issues completely. At this time we are recommending that the campus community hold off on this upgrade until updates have resolved all the known issues that could impact those services you use. Information Technology will continue to track Apple’s progress and communicate with the campus community by January 9th to keep you updated on that progress. Read the rest of this entry →
