Download MacOS High Sierra
The MacOS High Sierra software update package is available to download exclusively from the Mac App Store:
Note the macOS High Sierra installer will launch automatically after downloading from the App Store. If you do not wish to install the update immediately, quit the installer when it appears.
Additionally, if you plan on making a USB install drive for macOS High Sierra you would want to quit the installer and not install High Sierra yet, or make a copy of the install application located in the /Applications/ folder.
It is critically important to backup a Mac before installing any system software update, particularly major operating system release versions. Failure to backup could lead to permanent data loss.
Many of the changes brought to macOS High Sierra are under-the-hood and not particularly flashy, but should ultimately result in better performance on Macs.
