    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 update to developers, two weeks after seeding the first beta and two weeks after releasing macOS High Sierra 10.13.3.

    The new macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 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.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't addressed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.3. The update includes support for some features that are also available in iOS 11.3, like Messages on iCloud, which uploads all of your iMessages to the cloud. It will also support Business Chat, a feature coming when iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4 are released to the public.

    The new macOS update also includes the smoke cloud wallpaper that was previously only available on the iMac Pro, and it introduces a warning when opening up a 32-bit app as part of an effort to phase them out.

    In the future, Apple plans to phase out 32-bit Mac apps, just like it did with 32-bit iOS apps. Apple says macOS High Sierra is the last version of macOS that will support 32-bit apps without compromises.

    I’ve heard this is the release that makes MacOS solid. Yes, still bugs as there will always be, but the release that isn’t brand damaging and the one Apple should have released.

    Clearly, Apple needed another four months—plus even more time to finish the other features.

    I hope when macOS 10.13.4 is out I can stay on High Sierra. I had to roll back to macOS 10.12.6 after all the bugs there was.

    This release also has a lot of goodies for eGPU owners. We can now attach remove the egpu without a logout. Also clamshell mode is now supported. Looking forward to the final version to install on my production computer.

    Anyone else experiencing external display issues? I have a MacBook Pro -> Apple Thunderbolt Display -> Caldigit T3 -> Apple LED Cinema Display, since this last beta I am unable to have video on both displays unless I have the LED Display connected directly to the MacBook Pro. Just curious if I am going crazy.

    What kind of eGPU setup do you have going? I've been considering a 13" Macbook Pro but the lack of high end graphics is a killer for me.

    Preview and Photos app are still broken (as in the first beta) with this release on Mac Pro 5,1 with Apple ATI HD 5870 graphics. Preview displays solid blue screen. Photos displays solid red screen.

    Also, iBooks app is now missing.

    Hopefully Apple will address the "Sleep Wake Failure" issue.

    I run a 2017 MBP 13” with a Mantiz Venus and a Sappire Radeon 580 Nitro+. I’ve had good success with it. Runs games on both macOS and Windows well. Things run as expected on the macOS side, Windows has issues with hot plugging the eGPU. Not surprising given Apple’s limited set of supported cards and MS supporting everything under the sun.

    Nice. Thanks! I'll try and pick up an external housing soon and play around with my GTX 1070... I'm wondering if NVidia's web drivers work with it.
