Week of May 13th - Spring Cleaning (and Mac Updates)

It's Spring and Time for Mac Spring Updates:

To ensure that our 10,000+ TTSD devices remain in optimal condition for staff and students, we are adopting a shared responsibility model for keeping them updated. The IT Department is dedicated to simplifying this process for you. 

Specifically for Mac users, over the next two weeks, you will receive several prompts on your computer. These are designed to guide you through updating your Mac laptop to the latest applications and operating system versions. This will not only enhance performance but also apply crucial security patches, ensuring smoother and more secure usage.

Here are the dates when automatic updates will be available on your computer. Please take a moment to install them when prompted
  • May 14 (Wednesday AM) - Chrome and Firefox
  • May 15 (Thursday AM) - Papercut update 
  • May 16 (Friday, AM) - Check your Google Drive for Desktop to ensure backups are running  
  • May 20 - 23 (Monday - Thursday)  Mac OS Update
