Apple releases Sierra, Mac OS 10.12 tomorrow, but it is not compatible with all of the applications students need to use. At this time, HMS Information Technology strongly recommends that HMS/HSDM students not upgrade to Sierra. Sierrra is currently not compatible with the ExamSoft software used by HMS/HSDM, and other applications including but not limited to MATLAB. Until these incompatibilities are resolved, students should NOT install/upgrade current devices to Mac OS 10.12 and they should not buy new computers with 10.12 pre-installed.
