What's New

Server App

This Fall, Apple plans to cease bundling the open source services (Calendar Server, Contacts Server, Messages Server, Mail Server, DNS, DHCP, VPN Server, and Websites) in macOS Server, and will guide customers to acquire these same services directly from the open source providers. For more information, please refer to:

To help prepare for this transition, these services— which are still included in macOS Server 5.6—will no longer be visible in the Server App sidebar for new installations. Existing installations that update to macOS Server 5.6 will be unaffected and will continue to work as usual.

We continue to actively develop and support the other features of macOS Server, including Open Directory, Profile Manager and Xsan management.
