The Office of Information Technology asks the campus community to delay upgrading Boise State-owned computers to the latest Mac operating system, macOS Ventura, until testing is completed to ensure compatibility with all standard university software.

The Ventura operating system introduces a new multitasking experience and adds updated capabilities across the platform.

Once testing is complete, OIT will announce availability to the Boise State community. Testing is expected to be completed by the end of December.

The software update is free, and compatible with most Mac desktops and laptops produced since 2017.

More information about new features in macOS Ventura is available on Apple’s website.
