If you have a Mac, you might be wondering if you should upgrade to the latest OS called Big Sur.

At this time, Community Network are not recommending this upgrade. The operating system is still very new and we have not yet fully tested its compatibility with OSU IT services. In particular, we need to ensure that the ESET antivirus software works well on Big Sur. For more information on operating systems that Community Network currently recommends, see: CN – Operating System Life Cycle Information

If you have already upgraded to Big Sur, please make sure to check often for updates.
