On January 22, Apple began assertively pushing the upgrade of macOS to Ventura to all end users, regardless of any deferrals implemented by IT Teams due to existing app incompatibility issues. As a result, Macktez had reduced access to the software update panel temporarily for our Managed clients to delay the upgrade while we gathered more information.
We have found that the issues with common applications (particularly Adobe Creative Cloud and Malwarebytes) are minor at this point. As such, this Friday afternoon, 2/10, we are removing the delay to these pushes to end users, and allow end-user based upgrades to Ventura.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and allow Ventura updates within your organization, proceed with caution, knowing that some minor features within Adobe Creative Cloud and other third party software still may not work as expected (we’ve found so far issues involving automatic CC updates). RoaringApps is a site that tests macOS compatibility with popular software, which you can search and review for compatibility information about any specific software your company uses.
If issues do arise, or if you’d like assistance with the upgrade, please email email@example.com to let us know, and we can provide assistance.
