BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Apple is currently working on a new operating system for Mac, called High Sierra. The company will even start testing it soon, since a beta version for the MacOS is already available. Therefore, if you have a Mac, you can test it yourself by signing up to receive a download of High Sierra.
Apple has recently released the beta version of High Sierra, and is already available to the public. As expected, it brings some improvements. Many Apple apps will be the subject of these changes, such as Mail or Photos, as well as the graphics. However, not all improvements are obvious, but the OS’s performance and video encoding are definitely better.
The beta version might come with bugs
Although the prospect of High Sierra is great, don’t forget it is still a beta release. So, like any other such versions, it’s not perfect, and it might come with several bugs. Therefore, Apple advises users not to install the MacOS on their main device, but on a secondary one, if they have it.
Also, never forget to make a backup of all your important files. In case something goes wrong, either with the beta version or with anything else, you know there’s no chance you lose all your files without being able to retrieve them.
Here are a few improvements of High Sierra
Even though High Sierra looks like a slightly more brushed up version of last year’s MacOS Sierra, there are still some good improvements which might be worth the risk of installing a beta version. The Photos app has some new editing tools and a redesigned interface. Also, Safari will prevent videos from auto-playing, and the Mail app allows you to search faster among your emails.
Other apps which get improvements are Notes, Siri, and Spotlight, which also come on iOS 11. However, probably the best thing about High Sierra is the fact that it will be the first MacOS which will support VR technology.
