Cool. Keep 'em coming.
All the tips/tricks articles come with WWDC and them I'm struggling to find them months later when update is actually available.
Consider waiting on the APFS upgrade
Back up before you upgrade!!!!
That's too dang long to read. I read the intro and wondered when they were going to get to the point. Then I saw it was 25 pages on mobile. I'll wait for something more concise. Unless you want to provide a briefing summary, Sam.
I updated to iOS 11 this morning. So far, so good. I’ll be updating my watchOS later today.
I'm trying to wait for the 0.1 update before updating. We'll see if I can hold out.
I have noticed a pretty significant battery hit on both my 7+ and Series 1 watch since updating to iOS11 and watchOS 4 on Wednesday. I imagine the phone is just re-indexing everything and the charge duration will return to normal soon. The watch is still a mystery but I’m exploring a few things.
Interesting. I saw zero change in battery life on my iPhone 7 running iOS 11, but on my Series 2 watch it actually improved after installing WatchOS 4.
Wall Street Journal.
Is there an article that has that information that isn't WSJ?
I may hold off on upgrading to IOS 11. There are a few Apps that are only 32-bit and are not going to be updated to 64-bit.
I hate that the new OS will permanently disable them.
They work fine and are fully functional, but because the developers have moved on, I will lose that functionality just by upgrading OS's.
I especially will miss the Maltin Movie Guide. Yes, it hasn't had new titles added since 2014, but for classic titles it is still the best way to get a pertinent information (IMDB is fantastic, but 'too' expansive some of the time).
It is a bummer but it eliminates the 32 bit cruft. Beat on the developer, not Apple
Installed iOS 11 on my iPhone 6 last night.
Love...LOVE...LOVE...the new feature which saves your recent lock screen notifications if you scroll down your current ones. I can't tell you how many times I missed reading them all before the phone recognized my fingerprint and sent them forever away.
I also like that the fingerprint reader seems like it has been improved somehow. Much more consistent.
If only we would listen to good advice. My mom's iMac killed the internal SSD on High Sierra installation, there didn’t seen to be a way to reinstall macOS directly on it, after repairing it via Disk Utility. I booted off the external drive (running Yosemite(!)) and it then promptly hung for good trying to reboot it.
I am up to plan C, get a new extra life drive, install Sierra on it from my MBP which is still running Sierra, go back to my mom's house, boot the iMac from the new external drive, install Sierra on her SSD, restore from Time Machine and hope that we are out of bad luck for her iMac (2014, the original Retina display model)
Have you tried installing HIgh Sierra via Recovery Mode?
How to install a new copy of macOS HighSierra in Recovery Mode
Recovery Mode is the special salvation of the Mac that first launched with OS X 10.7 Lion. It creates a temporary boot partition that allows you to access certain things on your computer that you might not be able to if your system froze or crashed. It is the easiest way to install a fresh copy of an operating system.
Connect your Mac to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet
Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of your screen.
Select Restart from the drop-down menu.
Hold down Command and R (⌘ + R) at the same time. When you hear the startup chime (or when the screen goes black on newer Macs), keep holding the keys until your computer reboots.
Click on Reinstall a new copy of macOS.
Click Continue again when the installer window appears.
Agree to the software terms and conditions.
Select your hard drive.
Complete the installation process.
Yes, I tried that first - but it only offered me to install High Sierra in the external HD, the one running Yosemite (and now seems dead), not the SSD. Disk Utility did have SSD access, and I did Repair followed by Verify.
But when I booted on the external drive, the internal SSD was not visible in Finder. (Still in Disk Utility) Presumable I would need to set it up via Disk Utility the way one does with a new, not configured for a Mac HD first, before either Recovery Mode or App Store would work?
What's worst, my existing plan, to install Sierra 10.12.6 on a new external drive, boot on it and go from there won't work because:
In other words, there is no way for me to download anything newer than El Capitan from the App Store. That change is just bizarre, and I really should have read about it before I started upgrading...
