MacOS Big Sur

macOS Big Sur (11.0) was released to the public November 12, 2020. 

Big Sur is a brand new operating system and is not recommended for general use on college-owned computers at this time.  JAMF (our management tool for college-owned Macs) will block the installation process.  Please contact the Helpdesk if you have questions.
