titleSign On With Your Apple ID

Many features of macOS, including the App Store and FileVault, require an Apple ID. Before upgrading, log on to https://appleid.apple.com/ to make sure you know your username and password. You should also refresh your security questions and two-step verification settings if you haven't done so recently.  If you have difficulty with this process, you will need to work with Apple Support directly.

If you not want to maintain an account with Apple, it is still possible to use macOS, but please contact the helpdesk for potential limitations before you upgrade.

Upgrade Your Mac

This process may take about an hour, depending on your network connection.  If you have a laptop, make sure your computer is plugged in to the power adapter during the upgrade.
