New Faculty 2016 model MacBook Pro's with Adobe Creative Cloud 2017

New MacBook Pros("late 2016" models) for faculty will have a newer OS and newer applications than existing students and labs.


New ("late 2016" model) MacBook Pros require MacOS Sierra (version 10.12) which is not the default OS installed in labs and on student Macs. The newer apple hardware requires the newer operating system and updated applications because it is not compatible with the older versions.

"Late 2016" model MacBook Pros will not be in parity until Summer break 2017:

  • Student laptops (MacOS 10.11 - Creative Cloud 2015)
  • Campus Mac labs (MacOS 10.11 - Creative Cloud 2015)
  • Faculty and Staff  Apple Laptops  (MacOS 10.11 - Creative Cloud 2015)

Student laptops, labs and faculty and staff apples will continue on the normal update cycle, receiving the new operating system and applications over summer break 2017.
