    Apple today released the first beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 update to developers, one day after seeding the update to developers and a few days after releasing the new High Sierra operating system to the public.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will be able to download the new macOS High Sierra beta through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.


    Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 appears to focus primarily on bug fixes, performance improvements, security enhancements, and other under-the-hood updates. No major outward-facing features were found in the developer beta.

    macOS High Sierra is an update that's designed to improve and refine macOS Sierra. Along with a new, more efficient file system designed for modern storage, the update introduces High Efficiency Video Encoding (HEVC aka H.265).

    Many apps have small tweaks and feature updates in High Sierra. Photos features a new persistent side view and editing tools for Curves, Selective Color, and Live Photos, while Safari offers a new autoplay blocking feature for videos and Intelligent Tracking Prevention to protect your privacy.

    Full details on all of the new features in macOS High Sierra can be found in our macOS High Sierra roundup.

    Hoping this will resolve my USB Headset input issue where High Sierra no longer sees it as available for input

    Did they fix the vulnerability that was exposed on day one of High Sierra's release date?

    They'll probably get around to it in another few years.

    Lets also hope it fixes Yahoo Mail, e.g.:

    1. Can't always delete mails
    2. Drafts get left in that folder, multiple copies per mail, even when the mail has been sent

    Hmmm, yes MacOSX is soooo buggy. I think I will switch to windows now...

    You people. Always negative.

    Apart from crappy MS Office I do not have issues whatsoever.

    Either way you're still vulnerable if you're still using Sierra. So it may take awhile before Apple would fix it, just don't download app installer outside AppStore.

    Update does not fix Adobe Indesign Cursor rendering problem. Very disappointing its taking Apple/Adobe so long to fix this.

    Anyone else getting this update without being enrolled in the beta program?
    EDIT: Nevermind, apparently I had enabled the option to show me beta updates at some point...

    In the middle of the Rocky Mountains, for now.
    Anxiously awaiting APFS support for Fusion and regular HDDs.

    I've decided to wait a while until I upgrade to High Sierra. Just seems a lot more bugs than usual reading what everyone is reporting.

    No issues whatsoever with graphics, APFS, apps or anything else.

    iOS though. Buggy as hell.

    I was being quite serious. They've gone years without fixing bugs before. And this big bug apparently affects several versions of macOS. Nowhere in my post did I mention switching to Windows.

    For some reason in High Sierra they made the play/pause, back, and forward media keys work with the most recently used application (for instance watching a YouTube video in Safari) instead of leaving them as global hotkeys for iTunes. It's irritating and something I wish I could switch off.

    Somewhere Else
    I'm still on El Capitan on my Mid-2010 Macbook and I have to take the machine apart to replace my keyboard here, so I think I'm going to upgrade the HDD to an SSD as well and then do a clean install after that. Might wait for a couple maintenance releases first, though.
