    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra update to developers, a little over a week after releasing the second macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 beta and nearly a month after releasing the new High Sierra operating system to the public.

    The third 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.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 appears to focus on bug fixes, performance improvements, security enhancements, and other under-the-hood changes, but it also introduces a range of new Unicode 10 emoji like crazy face, pie, pretzel, t-rex, vampire, exploding head, face vomiting, shushing face, love you gesture, brain, scarf, zebra, giraffe, fortune cookie, pie, hedgehog, and more.

    The new emoji are also available in iOS 11.1 and watchOS 4.1.

    macOS High Sierra is a major update that introduces APFS, a new more modern file system, HEIF and HEVC photo and video encoding improvements for smaller file sizes without compromising quality, Metal 2, and several new features for Safari, like autoplay blocking for videos and Intelligent Tracking Prevention to better protect user privacy.

    Still nervous about upgrading from Sierra on a mid-2015 rMBP 15 (MJLT2LL/A).

    Don't be nervous homie. I'm on early 2013 MacBook Pro and it runs just grand. Also, not seeing it here in UK on app store right now.

    Likewise, hesitant to upgrade from Sierra on 2013 MBA. So I’m only testing high sierra on external SanDisk drive.

    Hopefully, this beta includes the WPA KRACK vulnerability patches. All my other wireless network gear and clients have been patched.

    Sometimes it takes an hour or two for these to show up in Software Update / App Store Updates. Not sure what the reason for the delay is.

    I think it has to propagate through the various DNS servers.

    Ever since I downloaded High Sierra on my Mac Book, it will sometimes shut down 'unexpectedly' instead of going into sleep mode when I close the lid. Please fix

    Just not sure I want to risk troubleshooting bugs right now. I upgraded my iPhone 7+ to 11.0.3 and am still dealing with issues. I know that macOS is different, but I would hate to have issues on both my phone and my MBP. Maybe I will clone the drive with carbon copy and chance it. I have it installed in Fusion 10 Pro and it works pretty well.

    You'll be fine. I'm running it on a late 2010 MacBook Air - technically that's the very fringe of compatibility. Haven't had any problems.

    I'm having a lot of trouble with external monitors and crashes while the computer is on sleep mode. Reinstalled twice, problems persist. MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) / Thunderbolt Display / High Sierra 10.13

    Got the same one, it runs great on Sierra, not looking forward to any bugs or security flaws.
