macOS Monterey: Don't Upgrade Yet

macOS Monterey start screen[updated November 4, 2021] We know many users are excited to upgrade to Apple's latest operating system, macOS 12, Monterey. Please be aware that Monterey is not yet officially supported at Sheridan and we do not recommend that users upgrade to it at this time.

Supported macOS Versions

To avoid compatibility issues, stick to a College-supported macOS – 10.15 (Catalina) > macOS 11.6 (Big Sur).

App Compatibility & macOS Monterey

The list of applications noted in the Testing Results table below features some of the more popular titles used at Sheridan and is by no means inclusive. The resource links provided will give you with more details about Monterey and supported applications. If you are required to run program or course-specific software, be sure to check out the developer's web site or ask your course instructor about compatibility with macOS Monterey.
