Apple today released the macOS 10.12 Sierra operating system.
Information Services and Technology (IST) has been evaluating pre-release versions of macOS Sierra in order to test compatibility with university systems and applications. If you intend to upgrade to macOS Sierra, we recommend installing the following compatibility updates, where appropriate, to ensure optimal performance:
macOS Sierra is integrated with Apple iCloud. The University of Alberta has no administrative custody or control over this space and therefore iCloud should not be used for any university records or information. To maintain the university's information management, privacy, and security compliance, continue using UAlberta Google Apps or University-based network storage for all university-related information and documents.
For assistance upgrading to macOS Sierra, we recommend contacting your local IT department or IST at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-492-9400. If you are planning to install the upgrade yourself, we recommend following Apple’s guidance on upgrading.
