General Apple bug icon

October 22, 2019:
We like to remind users who store archived copies of older Apple installers for Mac OS X, OS X, or macOS, or copies of older Apple software update packages (pkg bundles or DMG files containing pkg bundles) that this software will expire on October 24, 2019, 5:29:17 p.m. UTC. This includes recovery systems that have been created as "macOS Installer Media" on pen drives. Depending on situation, the software will still work if you modify the date setting on your Mac, or if you confirm to the Apple installer that you are prepared to install software with outdated security certificates.

If this does not work, you will need to download updated copies of the software from Apple.

Users that are mirroring such packages using the Software Update Server feature of macOS Server 5.3.1 or earlier, or third-party alternatives, like Reposado, are not affected.
