OS X Mavericks

Other Alert

This week Apple released the newest version of its OS X operating system named Mavericks (10.9).  Apple surprised the world by announcing that all users of OS X (from Snow Leopard 10.6 onward) would be eligible to upgrade to Mavericks for free.  

At this time, Information Technology Services (ITS) is holding off on upgrading to OS X Mavericks while we complete testing on this new operating system. Please do NOT try and upgrade your USD owned computer yourself – all computer operating system upgrades must be performed by ITS.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the ITS Help Desk at (619) 260-7900 or by emailing  Thank you for your patience as we test and roll out this new operating system.

Contact ITS Help Desk for more information.
