macOS Big Sur: When Should I Upgrade?

Apple has announced it's releasing Big Sur, its latest operating system, on November 12. Computing Services is assessing the university’s core software and services to determine whether they’re compatible with Big Sur.

At this time, we do not recommend upgrading to Big Sur until our testing is complete. If you upgrade before we’ve verified Big Sur’s compatibility with CMU’s software and services, you may be unable to run many of your preferred applications.
