IC Statement on iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura

iPadOS 16 Available

iPadOS 16 is here. It brings some great new features including unsending and editing messages in the Messages app, improvements to Mail app like undo send, scheduled send, and reminders, and much more.

Before you update, we recommend you check with the developers of your critical applications for compatibility with the new OS. If you decide to update, please back up your iPad using iTunes or iCloud Backup before you do.

Early adopters will be reporting issues to Apple and most of the major issues will be resolved within a few weeks with another update.

macOS Ventura

Apple has also released macOS Ventura, the next version of macOS. Institutional Computing has been running beta versions for several weeks and it is buggy. We will continue testing it with the university’s applications such as Google Drive, Canvas, Examsoft/Examplify, SPSS, Hornet Hub, the wireless network, etc.

Please DO NOT update your Mac to Ventura as you may experience issues that prevent you from performing your school and/or work activities.

Please wait to update until we are able to confirm the OS is compatible with SU systems and apps. Once we are able to confirm compatibility, we will notify the SU community that it is okay to update.

If you have any questions regarding these updates, please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@su.edu or 540–665–5555.
