I have installed this today on my iMac and all is good. Didn't take too long and no issues experienced. Its a large download over 4 Gigabytes. What has others experienced?

Installed on MBP 2016 with touch bar and no issues so far.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Has anyone seen a list of removed features anywhere? The ones I'm aware of are:

 

  • Google Talk/Hangouts support removed from Messages app
  • Translation widget removed from Dashboard
  • Rapid Zoom accessibility feature removed
  • telnet is gone

There are probably others!

 

[Edit: List updated]

All OK here on 2017 MacBook Pro - except the Photos app acts differently from before and there doesn't seem to be any explanations anywhere - 'Help' not updated to cover the non-intuitive UI changes I'm seeing (specifically in the People album/function).

Does this article help at all? I'm not on HS myself so I'm not sure how useful it is, I just saw the article earlier today.

Installed on my 2011 MBP and my 2017 iMac.

 

 

 

Things like

 

TechtoolPro , Drive Genius, Data Rescue, etc all need updates for APFS.

 

DiskWarrior 5 is OK but won't recognise APFS disks

 

CarbonCopy Cloner 5 is already compatible.

 

Office 2016 needs all its updates installed

 

Adruino App seems to be OK

 

DipTrace is OK (version 3).

 

Calibre 3.8 seems OK

 

Firefox 55.0.3 had 3 processes that I had to forced quit they were all taking 68% of CPU time

 

1Password and CyberDuck did not want to self update, this may be a gatekeeper issue.

 

Siri works ok, tried "open network utility" and away it went, worked well.

Thanks - I had seen that in my googling for sense, but it’s very general compared to what I’m getting at and looking for.

My understanding is that you should not install if you have a Fusion Drive. Support is coming (as above) but Apple say to wait for now.

Yes, with zero problems.

 

The thing about it not working with Fusion drives is a little misleading.

 

The ONLY issues with Fusion drives is that the new disk format APFS has compatibility issues, so it will not automatically upgrade the filesystem on install.

 

There will be a fix for this in a later update.

 

This is also true for ordinary Hard Drives.
