Will the Mail problems be fixed in High Sierra? Currently, Mail is unusable to send email and in slow to receive email.
It is a pet hate of mine Apple never ever give us a size of the iMac updates. I just cannot understand why, but on an iPhone its clearly given.
Some of us do not have open ended data allowances and lightening speed services, so timing a heavy d/l is a discipline we have to have.
The size should be shown.
How about running macOS High Sierra on MacBook Pro early 2011 13″?
I still afraid install it on my Mac and until now using Yosemite.
iPhone SE, would you upgrade?
Will apple still provide security updates for older phones without upgrade?
OLD MacBook how does one get security updates with out upgrading OS?
10.13 will be disappointing to all Mac users who do not have a boot volume SSD. So far, none of the 10.13 betas have converted HDD-only Macs to APFS and Apple has ambiguously indicated that APFS will not work on Fusion drive Macs either.
Without APFS I can’t see the benefit of installing 10.13.
It’s 2017, why are you still using rotating storage for a boot volume?
McAfee did not trust OSXDaily and did not want me to open it up.
Serves you right for using McAfee.
