Update MacOS Software
Big Sur is the newest Apple Macintosh Operating System that is necessary for you to successfully use a MacBook at BWS. Therefore, it is important that all students update their MacBook to the Big Sur OS.
It may take a few hours to update to Big Sur, so make sure you plan the time to run the update and have your MacBook plugged into a power outlet.

2. Click on the "Software Update..." button. When the next window opens choose "Upgrade Now."
3. Your Mac will begin downloading MacOS Big Sur. Once it has downloaded, follow the prompts to finish the download.
