Do Not Upgrade to macOS Ventura
Apple is planning to release macOS Ventura this coming Monday, October 24, 2022. Please do NOT upgrade to macOS Ventura (macOS 13.0.0).
MacOS Ventura (macOS 13.0.0) contains many new features and changes to how macOS works. We have not tested University software, like LaTeX or Mathematica, or printer drivers against macOS Ventura and cannot ensure compatibility. For example, macOS Monterey (12.x.x) was the last major release and it introduced a bug that caused printing problems for LaTeX documents.
MacOS Big Sur (macOS 11.x.x) and macOS Monterey (macOS 12.x.x) are still supported by Apple, UIUC, and Math IT. Please continue to use those versions of macOS in the short term.
When macOS Ventura (macOS 13.0.0) shows as an upgrade, please refrain from updating. Once we have some time to test apps and printers with macOS Ventura, we will issue a follow up notification letting you know when it's safe to upgrade.
