Product Information

macOS Mojave (10.14) was released on Monday, September 24th, 2018. CaTS has completed testing Mojave with the standard software used around campus and in computer labs. Please note that Mojave has some known compatibility issues with certain University services. 

Important Notes:

  • Banner 8 Admin is incompatible with Mojave due to issues with Java. Banner 9 Admin is now the recommended software to use for University purposes. More information about Banner 9 Admin can be found at https://www.wright.edu/information-technology/services/banner-9-admin
  • Older versions of Matlab are not supported on Mojave.  Matlab customers need to ensure they are on 2018b release or higher. 
  • Mojave will convert your hard drive (SSDs, Fusion Drives, and Hard Disk Drives) to the new Apple File System (APFS).
  • Apple TVs generation 3 or earlier may not be compatible with Mojave. If you plan on using your own Apple device in a classroom managed by CaTS, you may experience audio issues.

Recommendation

CaTS is now officially supporting macOS Mojave. If you are interested in upgrading to macOS Mojave, we recommend you first review our Software Compatibility list for known issues. If you currently use Matlab, we recommend you wait until January before upgrading to macOS Mojave.

How to Upgrade

  1. Check your Mac Hardware Requirements
  2. Before you upgrade, we recommend you backup your Mac by copying your Documents folder to an external drive
  3. Download macOS Mojave and follow onscreen instructions to begin your upgrade

If you have OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or an older version, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to at least macOS 10.12 (Sierra). Apple will most likely stop providing software updates or critical security updates for OS X 10.11 and older versions soon.
