One Drive Sync update to macOS Sierra 10.12 and macOS High Sierra 10.13 to stop

Microsoft has announced that One Drive sync on machines using older macOS, Sierra 10.12 and High Sierra 10.13 will not work. This change will impact both personal and business accounts. The announcement is in tandem with their commitment to security. The above-mentioned versions of macOS are not supported by Apple, making them vulnerable to attacks.

Support to Sierra 10.12 and High Sierra 10.13 will end on September 10th 2021.

While the One Drive on these macOS will continue to function, it will not be tested. Making it a security risk to use redundant systems. Also, Microsoft will not allow new installations on unsupported versions. Bug reports will also be ignored.

Keeping security and the best technological experience at the core, going forward, Microsoft has decided to support only the three most recent versions of macOS. Meaning, when a new version is released, Microsoft will support the new and 2 previous versions. Currently, support is available for macOS 10.14 (Mojave), 10.15 (Catalina), and 11 (Big Sur).

In this, NETCorp would like to advise you to upgrade your macOS to Mojave 10.14 or above. For the best user experience and longest support lifecycle, we recommend upgrading to macOS Big Sur 11.0 or above.
