Wait before installing macOS Big Sur

Apple will release a new version of the operating system, macOS Big Sur, on November 12, 2020. 

Do not upgrade to this new version until Apple and application developers have had time to address bugs that often accompany major new macOS versions. If you must upgrade immediately, contact us to ensure your applications are compatible and to prevent any prolonged downtime that may result. 

You can find more information about macOS Big Sur compatibility in the HMS IT Service Desk online resources. You can also contact HMS IT by phone at 617-432-2000 or by email at itservicedesk@hms.harvard.edu
