Avoid MacOS Monterey Upgrade

Posted on October 18th, 2021 by

Technology Services is strongly recommending that Gustavus Mac users avoid installing the upcoming Mac operating system release, macOS 12 (Monterey).

The exact timing for this release is set for Monday, October 25th, 2021. This update may cause some unexpected incompatibility issues, and could include not being able to log into your Mac and possibly even data loss.

Technology Services will continue to deploy Mac machines running Big Sur until such time as we are confident Monterey has been thoroughly tested and proven ready for our environment. If you are looking to update to Big Sur from a previous operating system, please contact the Technology Helpline with your request.

Please reach out to GTS at 507-933-6111 or helpline@gustavus.edu if you have any questions.
