Please consult with your IT support representative before upgrading your Macintosh computer to the newest operating system (macOS 10.15 - Catalina).


In October Apple will release its newest operating system for Macintosh computers, macOS 10.15 Catalina. Catalina will add many new features, but most importantly will permanently remove support for older 32-bit applications.

As a result of this important change, some applications in use across the HMS and HSDM Campus may no longer work. The HMS IT Department and HSDM IT Support strongly urge you to speak with your local IT representative prior to upgrading to Catalina to make sure the applications you use are fully supported.

More information about Catalina and applications that we have evaluated can be found in the following Knowledgebase Article:
