iOS 11 was released today, with a bunch of new features (especially for iPad), some redesigned elements (like Control Center), and nifty things like a great augmented reality implementation for combining the virtual and the real worlds. And coming up next week is the release of macOS High Sierra.
It seems like a lot to process if you haven’t been following every little detail of Apple’s plans (and why should you?), which is why folks like me and the authors at Take Control Books do all that work for you! Take Control just released updates to their books that cover iOS, High Sierra, and upgrading to High Sierra; buy them together and you get a nice savings:
- Take Control of Upgrading to High Sierra, by Joe Kissell
- Take Control of High Sierra, by Scholle McFarland
- Take Control of iOS 11, by Josh Centers
- Buy all three books in a bundle and save 35%!
Will I be able to upgrade my fusion-equipped iMac to High Sierra when it is released? Haven’t been able to find a clear answer on that one.
Yes, you’ll be able to upgrade to High Sierra. Since the iMac has a fusion drive instead of a straight SSD, High Sierra won’t switch over to the new APFS (Apple File System). It will continue to use HFS+ as the underlying file system.
