It is recommended that Mac users hold off on applying the Sonoma update until all software installed on their devices are confirmed as supported by the software vendor. A quick google search of a product, Sonoma and support should return a vendor support page with requirements.

It is recommended that departments share this alert with all researchers and with all students who are enrolled in classes that use SPSS within their course.
