macOS Sonoma Support
macOS Sonoma was released in October 2023. As in past years, it will not become our official supported operating system until early Summer 2024, when we begin preparing student laptops and labs for the fall semester. Until then, macOS Ventura (macOS 13) will continue to be our officially supported operating system for Macs. This timeline may change In extenuating circumstances (i.e. a security flaw is found that is only fixed in macOS Sonoma, etc.)
As with any new OS version, there will be bugs and software incompatibilities. For the most stable computing experience, please wait to upgrade. This gives Apple and software makers time to fix bugs and work out app compatibility issues. Usually by the ".3" release (in this case, macOS 14.3), most of the major issues will have been addressed.
