Recommendations for Apple macOS Sonoma

Updated Apple introduced a new operating system (Sonoma/macOS 14) on September 26, 2023. Sonoma is the latest release of the Apple operating system for Macintosh computers such as iMacs, MacBooks and Mac Minis. A thorough test and review of the release version of Sonoma has been completed to ensure the new macOS is compatible with the software and computing environment our community relies on for teaching and research. This includes UVic specific applications and services.

Office 365 basic authentication change

Microsoft is making changes in mid-January 2023 to the types of services Office 365 desktop applications can connect to. The centrally hosted service Connect (SharePoint 2013) will be affected by this change. University Systems is taking steps to ensure access to Connect from Office 365 desktop applications is not impacted for Office 365 installations acquired through UVic.
