The SPSS software on your Apple device may sometimes need the licence renewing. This only applies when you have downloaded the SPSS software to your device- we have a guide about how to do this.

Your device needs to be connected to the Internet to renew the SPSS licence. 

1. Locate the SPSS License Authorization Wizard through Finder. Go to applications - IBM - SPSS - Statistics - 26


2. Right click over the application and click Open

3. The Licence Status screen will appear - click Next

4. Select Authorized User Licence and click Next

5. You will now need the latest SPSS code. You can find this on the IT Software page of the Student Hub. Enter the code and click Next

Pop up box to enter the authorisation code that can be found on the Student Hub

6. A dialogue box will appear that will let you know when the process is complete. You can then click Next then Finish.
