Update MacOS Software

Monterey 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 Monterey OS.

It may take a few hours to update to Monterey, so make sure you plan the time to run the update and have your MacBook plugged into a power outlet.

How to Update

1. In the upper left corner, click on the Apple symbol and then "About This Mac". This will show you what OS your laptop is currently running.

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.
