and you said, "We're going to start supporting Macs", then I'd start studying up on supporting Macs.
If you said, "Here's a Mac, why don't you already know how to make it work?" then I'd ask you what projects you expected me to neglect so I could add a skill that I had no notion would be useful, and what projects you'd like me to set aside so I can study other randomly selected topics that you might pull out your @$$ tomorrow.
i don't mind picking up new skills, but the IT field is so diverse that it is no longer possible to master everything. Just being a jack of all trades isn't even practical anymore. Tell me what skills the company practically expects to need and I'll work on them. Don't expect me to have them all at my beck and call without some warning.
Oh, and BYOD is a 'no go' where I work, be it Windows, Apple, or Linux. That's not my call, that's the boss talking. She has other priorities she wants us to work on. We might support your abacus.
