Info

You can always check for updates on your own schedule by following these instructions: Click here for Mac and Click here for Windows.


This article describes our routine policy for updates. In the event of a critical security vulnerability being announced, updates and reboots may be pushed more aggressively. The Information Security Office (ISO) policies require us to regularly apply security updates to all University-owned computers. Our goal is to make this process as unobtrusive as possible while balancing convenience with security.

Mac users will see a UT branded popup instructing them to apply software updates. This popup will continue to appear until the computer is updated.

During the first week after updates are available, the popup will appear once starting at 10am.

On the second week after updates are available, the popup will appear multiple times daily.  During the first two weeks, you may postpone the update. 

On the third week after updates are available, the popup will not go away. The popup will go away as soon as updates are applied. Mac users will not forced to reboot by this popup, however the updates may require a reboot after being installed.
