Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra update to developers, two days after releasing the new High Sierra operating system to the public.

The first macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store with the proper profile installed.

It's not yet clear what improvements the first update to macOS High Sierra will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that have been found between the time the golden master was released and its final public launch.

The update could also include features Apple has delayed for a later set of betas, such as iCloud storage for iMessages, and we're also supposed to be getting some new emojis soon.

We'll update this post with any new features that are found in macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.

There are three bugs I've been looking forward for them to fix. First is only partial support for exchange 2016 in Mac Mail. Second, text messages show up out of order in iMessage. And finally connection to SMB shares that use DFS have been unreliable. If they can get those fixed, I'll be a happy camper.

That was fast, as expected. Installing now on my rMBP. Hopefully it will see an official release by the middle of next month.

Edit: Build 17B25c.

OC Baby!
Is the iCloud support for iMessage, what is suppose to allow iMessage to better sync across multiple devices? We use iMessage for our business and it's installed on 1 iPhone and 4 computers. It works fairly well, but they do occasionally come out of sync.

Yeah I think I will sit out High Sierra until 10.13.5 or so... All this yearly changing of the OS is getting a bit ridiculous at this point. I really wish they would hold still on one for a few years and perfect the stability. I mean do we really need any "new" features? They seem to just be adding stuff for the sake of adding now. Not because it is making anything better. And with Apple this seems pointless seeing as their OS is free. It isn't as thought they have money to make by doing this. I miss the good ole' days when an OS stuck around for many many years.

I believe that's exactly right. Just improved synchronization across multiple devices.

With the support of family sharing for iCloud storage. I cannot even upgrade my storage last night. Every time I click buy more storage it gives me a blank menu and couldn’t do anything about it, can’t go back or close system preferences.

All devices currently can receive the messages and sync the conversation, but they do not sync deletions. This is a horrible design as in your example, you have to go to 5 different devices to remove a message stream. So annoying to me personally. The new feature will fix that.

Already had a kernel panic on my MacBook Pro and I haven’t even had High Sierra for two hours. Getting sloppy over there in Cupertino.

No, please.

One "Kernel panic" and Apple is going to the dogs?

I have run the developer betas since Mountain Lion and have never had a "kernel panic."

I actually don't know what a "kernel panic" IS.

do they usually hold the first public beta off a bit or do you think it will be shortly?
