As part of our ongoing effort to keep our users informed, please be aware of new alert that indicates some Apple Macs and Ipads will get left behind.  If you have questions, or would like to have your machines reviewed, please contact our Help Desk

Potential Impact For:  Macs & Ipads with Intel-based technology or A-chips

While the latest technology provides many enhancements, the new MAC OSX update is unintentionally going to cause a lot of things not to work.  Our suggestion is to not run the latest OSX version until there are better solutions for integration and compatibility.  Otherwise, you may risk losing some important features and these won’t be fixed without a complete upgrade.

According to MacWorld, “Many of the new features unveiled for macOS 13 Ventura won’t be available on older Macs because those features require the technology used in Apple’s M1 and M2 chips.  The same applies if you don’t have an M1 or M2 ipad.”  View a full summary description of the features that will leave some Apple Macs and Ipads left behind Here.

While this particular ‘alert’ is not a typical threat, it’s an important issue to be aware of since updating could require you to spend some serious cash to keep your devices running.  As a matter of fact, one of the most common user complaints and help desk calls result when an update is installed improperly, too soon, or without understanding the implications of the update to form, function, and integration with other systems.  These updates often dramatically impact app or software capabilities for users and therefore, can dramatically impact productivity and efficiency.  That’s why it’s important to have a technology partner up to speed on the latest updates and issues affecting your business.
