ATTENTION: macOS - Monterey Information

Apple recently released a new Operating System named Monterey (12.0)

UMS IT has now made available macOS Monterey for managed devices to self-upgrade via Apple Software Updates or the Apple AppStore. Unmanaged devices are also encouraged to self-upgrade to macOS Monterey if their device is on an unsupported version of macOS. Users will have the option to install and upgrade their Apple Mac device to the latest operating system before it becomes fully recommended in the Spring.

UMaine Information Technology’s goal is to offer the highest level of service possible to support the technology needs of UMaine students, faculty, and staff while maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all during the pandemic. To achieve that goal, on-campus IT support services have been modified for fall 2021. While walk-in support options are more limited this semester, we have measures in place to ensure that students and employees get the help they need when they need it.
