Apple held its latest iPhone Event 2017 on September 12, Tuesday, after which it updated its webpage with the newest information about more than just its smartphones. The company announced the official release date of its macOS High Sierra operating system, although it did not release any additional details besides this.
However, it did reveal some further information on the operating system it has been working on, for example, the tvOS, and watchOS.
macOS High Sierra to Become Officially Available in September
According to the latest statement from Apple, the macOS High Sierra will be released for general use on September 25. This new macOS version was first presented back in June, at the WWDC developer conference.
Apple writes that “New technologies at the heart of the system make your Mac more reliable, capable, and responsive – and lay the foundation for future innovations”.
This operating system will reportedly ‘re-architecture’ the way in which the user data is stored and should also improve the quality of its video streaming. In turn, this latter should unleash the full potential of this OS’s graphics processors. In general, High Sierra will look to introduce new core technologies meant to improve the Mac’s most important functions.
The system changes also mean some alterations to the system’s basic apps. For example, the Photos one will be receiving some new features intended to keep it up to date and running. Some of these will be the introduction of more editing tools, new filtering options, as well as the possibility to reorganize the toolbar.
Safari users might be pleased to find out that a new feature in its settings will let them block videos on the web from auto-playing. SSD users will be getting a new file system, and the fact that the Mail app will be compressing messages are just some of the changes which will come with the macOS High Sierra.
High Sierra will follow the usual updates path in the sense that it will be a free upgrade, and will become available in the Mac App Store. This new version will also be introducing ‘the latest security updates’.
Apple presents High Sierra as “It’s macOS at its highest level yet”.
