Brown University Macintosh Operating System Support Life Cycle

Brown University supports the Macintosh operating system based on the life cycle illustrated below. The technical support life cycle provided by Apple for the Macintosh operating system may differ from that established by Brown University. Apple does not provide general technical support life cycle information for Macintosh operating systems. Should you have specific questions about Apple support, visit Apple's Service & Support page.

Since Apple has phased out support for operating systems prior to Mac OS X, Brown will be unable to continue supporting older operating systems. Additionally, some of our distributed software may not run on older versions of the Macintosh OS.

To view Brown's detailed operating system support statement for all versions of Macintosh, see Brown's Macintosh Operating System Support page.
