Canon PIXMA MG8130 Driver-Canon is aware that its customers can often choose to upgrade their existing operating systems but, before doing so, Canon always recommends its customers to consider whether their canon product will continue to function as expected with the new updated operating system.
In general, at the time of launching each new operating system, Canon has already established exactly what products will be supported and this will be communicated through the company's support websites.
Canon makes such decisions in the knowledge that the production of drivers and software support has a direct financial cost. Thus, by certainly respecting the choice of its customers to update the technologies in their possession, Canon cannot guarantee that its older products will continue to be supported by the new operating system.
Canon Inc. Headquartered in Japan announced the presence of a series of compatibility issues between the new MacOS System (Sierra) and a selection of Canon products and software packages.
If you have a physical product or software in one of the following lists, we strongly recommend that you do not upgrade your operating system until the full functionality confirmation is provided.
