Apple Purchases
September 28, 2015
On September 30, 2015, Apple is expected to release their newest upgrade to the operating system for Mac computers, OS X ‘El Capitan’ (10.11).  As with each new OS X release, the supporting infrastructure that IS manages will need to be upgraded to be compatible with the new OS X version.  Please do not upgrade DePaul-owned Macs to OS X 10.11 until IS has certified it as a supported version.  Performing a self-service upgrade prior to IS certification may cause system instability or impact the security of the system.  Orders for new Mac computers that ship with OS X 10.11 will be delayed until the certification process is completed.  Information Services is working through this process as quickly as possible to minimize any inconvenience for the community.  IS will issue notification when the certification process is completed and new orders can resume.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  If you have any questions about this upgrade or other technology related issues, please contact the Technology Support Center at 312-362-8765.
