Last chance to upgrade your older Mac, iPad or iPhone

As has been the case for several years now, Apple will release new versions of operating systems for Macs, iPads & iPhones this month.  Also, as has been the case in the past, when the new versions are released, current versions of these operating systems will no longer be availalbe.

What is different this year is that these new operating systems will NOT be supported on fairly recent hardware.  

If your Mac, iPad or iPhone is NOT on the list below, you should upgrade it to the latest operating system version in the next couple of weeks before Apple pulls the current version from their store.

Upgrading is easy and the operating systems are free.  Read my blog from earlier this year on how to upgrade:
