Apple has just finished the first version of a beta testing concept for its brand new iMac and MacBook operating system. MacOS High Sierra was first announced on June 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference. The first public beta was launched at the same time with the second developer beta. Therefore, the new beta software is now available for non-developers to upgrade their devices and test away the new mega update.
Being Only a New Beta Software, It Is Recommended to Install the Update on a Secondary Gadget for Testing
On June 29, Apple opened macOS High Sierra for testing for the very first time for both users and developers. However, those who wish to take part in this preliminary session should sign up for the beta testing program from Apple first. Once the papers are done, they can install the new content through the Software Update feature that can be found in Mac App Store.
Before transitioning the computer to the latest update, users should, however, perform a comprehensive backup. On top of that, people should spare their primary gadgets that they use every day from the new beta software. This is because, at this early stage in such a major project, there are a lot of bugs and the system is unstable.
Apple Made Sure Their Products Will Be Updated to Latest Tech Trends
With this clean sleight on their hands, Apple developers made sure that MacOS High Sierra accommodates all modern trends. Therefore, the centerpiece is support for High Efficiency Video Coding best known as HEVC. This enhancement can compress with 40% more efficiency which can streamline the latest interests in 4K streaming and 4K videos.
There are lots of other improvements under the hood. For instance, Siri got an upgrade too. She or he will have a more natural voice. This will make it easier to interact with this piece of artificial intelligence.
All in all, the latest operating system coming from Apple is all about efficiency and performance. HEVC support together with new file system and enhanced Metal 2 graphics is just what creative professionals are looking for. This large community happens to be Apple’s target public.
