Important Information about your Apple iPhone, iPad, or laptop starting September 17

Tomorrow is “that day,” the day that Apple will begin rolling iOS8 out to iPhone, iPad, and iPod owners. Almost half of the devices on campus connected to our wireless or to our residential computer network are Apple devices (see attached stats below). We have prepared as best as we were able to maximize your Internet access over the next week or two. Here’s more information about what to expect…

 

What might you observe?

Remember that all Apple mobile devices connected to our network may experience slower service if, as we have observed in the past, campus bandwidth is taken up with these devices downloading the new operating system.

 

How have we prepared?

We have made adjustments to the network so that, if all goes planned, the download of the operating system will be cached (stored and downloadable locally) on our network and other Internet traffic will not be affected.
