MacOS High Sierrra: 5 under the hood new features

Apple is releasing its new High Sierra operating system for Mac on Monday

Have you updated to High Sierra yet?

The security researcher also said it wasn't hard to get the malicious app running on a Mac today. When it does, you'll see an Update button right next to it. Click on it.

It is recommended that you perform a backup before you upgrade.

So, before you upgrade to macOS 10.13 High Sierra, might I suggest you make sure your favorite apps and utilities are going to work. Apple's new file system is extensible and offers better performance, security, and reliability. Alongside a new version of iOS and other assorted goodies, the company wowed attendees with the latest iteration of its desktop operating system, macOS High Sierra. Are you upgrading to the new operating system?

I've not yet hit any compatibility issues with High Sierra - I've been running betas for a while now.

Director of Research at security firm Synack and ex-NSA analyst Patrick Wardle on Monday said macOS High Sierra contains a major security flaw that can potentially allow hackers to steal user credentials from accounts stored in Keychain.

What's here in High Sierra is fine.

Evernote is critical for a lot of Mac users, and it's working in macOS High Sierra. You can also get it by clicking the Apple logo in the top left corner of the screen and then selecting About This Mac Software Update. We've run down the new features, as well as the release date and other info. This means that users won't be missing out on the features and benefits of using APFS.

Siri, like in iOS 11, has some significant updates, including a more natural-sounding voice and the ability to learn a user's Apple Music preferences and tastes. However, a report from MacRumors cites an e-mail to a reader from Apple's Craig Federighi that states APFS will support Fusion Drives with later software updates.

These app updates are useful enough, although the underlying operating system itself boasts little of the traditional eye-candy that we've come to expect from Apple upgrades.

Additionally, macOS High Sierra will also support High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), a new standard that enables efficient compression, streaming and playback for video.

Apple has added new editing tools to the app including Curves, which allows users to fine-tune the contrast, and Selective Color, which allows them to make adjustments to a specific colour range. Metal 2 will also bring Macs into the world of VR creation, albeit only via the HTC Vive at launch.

Metal 2 is what Apple calls a graphics game changer, indicative of the company's strong focus on next-generation experiences.
