Apple has finally announced the official release date of its macOS Sierra operating system. According to the company, the final version of the Mac-oriented operating system will be made available for the masses starting from 25 September 2017, which is only a few weeks away from now. Apple first announced macOS High Sierra in June this year, at WWDC.
Like Apple’s previous operating systems, macOS High Sierra will be made available to consumers for free. The Cupertino-based company stated that its newest iteration of macOS will be compatible with almost all MacBooks and iMacs that are manufactured from 2009 onwards. That said, the operating system may cause older apps to not function normally – make sure to check on that before updating.
That aside, notable features that’ll come with macOS High Sierra include improvements done to its “core” apps like Photos, Mail, Siri, and etc. In addition, macOS High Sierra will also be endowed with under-the-hood upgrades like the Apple APFS filesystem, new HEVC encoder and best of all, support for virtual reality and external GPU enclosures.
Regardless, do head on over to Apple’s official website to know more about the final release of macOS High Sierra. Be sure to check out other major announcements that were made during Apple’s recent September 2017 keynote as well.
