On Sept. 30th 2015, Apple will release a new operating system for Mac, El Capitan (Mac OS X 10.11). Before upgrading FIT computers, the IT Department tests new operating systems with FIT systems and software to ensure functionality will be maintained. That is why we ask anyone with an FIT computer to please contact TechHelp before installing El Capitan. Without IT assistance you may lose software and data installed.
We understand that Apple is encouraging many people to upgrade, and many may choose to upgrade their non-FIT computer. El Capitan supports all Macs introduced in 2009 and later, and some models introduced in 2007 and 2008. We strongly recommend that you read the Apple Upgrade Requirements for El Capitan from Apple. If your computer does not meet the Apple Upgrade Requirements, we advise you not to perform the upgrade or you may find your computer will no longer function properly.
