Apple releases macOS High Sierra update

Apple releases macOS High Sierra update

The security flaw, called keychainStealer, could expose your Keychain passwords, but it isn't limited to High Sierra, and isn't a reason to not upgrade. Before you rush in, however, it's worth preparing your Mac for what's to come. The latest MacBook Pro and iMac models with Intel Kaby Lake processors are capable of hardware decoding the codec while older Macs will be able to do it on a software level. Did you download free MacOS High Sierra yet and how was it compared to the predecessor? Wardle wrote in a blog post that he provided a detailed write-up and source code for the exploit, and said Apple "seemed appreciative" of his findings. After the operating system is downloaded to a Mac, it feels like Sierra and other previous macOS versions.

I recommend you not install any OS upgrade the first time you see it.

Earlier this month, Wardle blogged about another zero-day vulnerability in High Sierra's SKEL (secure kernel extension loading) feature that enables attackers to bypass the security feature. Are any of you now using a Mac? The problem (as you've likely guessed) is that this data is anything but secured. They'll slash the amount of space that photos and videos take up on your system, while retaining the same image and video quality. You did make a backup, right? This version of the OS is the updated variant of the predecessor macOS Sierra. But look for Apple to patch this hole in a future software update. But once it's complete, just follow the on-screen prompts for installation.

Essentially speaking, if you can click on a Continue button, you should be sorted.

The High Sierra update for macOS is live. Or go and have a nice lengthy coffee break.

All that changes with High Sierra.

Today, Apple began rolling out its latest version of macOS, known as "High Sierra". This means that users won't be missing out on the features and benefits of using APFS. This is a replacement for Apple's older HFS file system, which has been around for years and was developed back when all computers hard hard drives.

Other cool extras: Notes now allows you to add tables, Spotlight can help provide flight information including arrival and departure times, flights paths and delays, Siri has a less robotic voice and for privacy - the Intelligent Tracking Prevention in Safari blocks unwanted follows from trackers or cookies.

The Photos app gains a more robust editing suite, improved organizational tools and a better sidebar.

Metal is Apple's new graphics technology.
