ITS gives OK to install El Capitan operating system on Macs

Some initial glitches have been resolved, so faculty, staff and students may now install the new Mac OS X operating system upgrade, El Capitan (version 10.11.1).

Apple released a patch Oct. 21 that improves the stability of both Office 2011 and Office 2016 when using El Capitan. Microsoft and Konica Minolta also have recently released updated their products so printers will now work effectively with El Capitan.

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to back up all critical data before updating to El Capitan. Afterward, all users should update Microsoft Office and other critical applications.
