Will your Mac support macOS Sierra? Only if it’s one of the models listed below:

MacBook (late 2009 and later)
iMac (late 2009 and later)
MacBook Air (2010 and later)
MacBook Pro (2010 and later)
Mac Mini (2010 and later)
Mac Pro (2010 and later)

Before updating to macOS Sierra, be sure to backup your system and any critical files, either with Apple’s Time Machine or some other offline method. It’s probably best to wait a day or two before updating, if you’re not in a rush, to avoid bugs or install problems that may occur for some users.

Let us know how your macOS Sierra install goes!

    The update went 100% without a glitch. The only thing I could not figure out was some 4 digit code for icloud protected files which I don’t have and even clicking getting it via another device (my iphone) did not send the 4 digit code, so I did not bother with it. I am not using icloud keychain.

    Where is the option to turn it on? I went into System preferences on my MBP, Security and Privacy and than what? I don’t see the option to enable it. thanks
