Please note: This is compatible with the following models below. Some earlier ranges that could run 10.15 Catalina cannot run Big Sur so please double check compatability before purchasing. Machines shipped with anything later than 11.6.1 will not work with this install.

Please note: This product is the purchase of a brand new 32GB USB 3.1 USB stick. No profit is made on the sale of the OS, which is a copyright of Apple.
Apple have details on their website on how to create these USB sticks if you already own the operating system, we are simply providing the service to make it straight forward for all users.
Reformatting or erasing this stick will allow it to operate as a normal external USB stick. But the OS install/recovery tool would no longer be serviceable. Any warranty provided on this product is for the USB stick and potential corruption of the install, but does not cover the erasing or reformatting of the stick.
The product is brand new, but the packaging has been opened in order to complete the install process.
The 12 month warranty covers the USB stick itself and not the OS or contents of the drive.
