    iTunes from day one never been or probably never will be a stable product. Over complicated database with deep tentacles in the main MacOS. Time for Apple to reinvent what iTunes should be. While they are at it, do the same for photos.

    The 2011 Mac Mini I was speaking about is half the way around the world. Upgrading to High Sierra from El Capitan didn't work. There was an error message that the software RAID was not supported. Upgrading to Sierra worked fine. I am not going to be doing all the fancy steps that you reference when the computer is not in my possession. That computer will have to be stuck with Sierra. The question is, though, if High Sierra does support Software RAID on the system volume in HFS+, why did Apple block the upgrade from El Capitan to High Sierra? This is sloppiness or planned obsolescence. The 2011 Mac Mini is not supported by Mojave due to it now being considered vintage.

    It's a hidden folder. In the finder, choose Go - > Go to folder. Type or paste:

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Versions/A/MobileDevice

    Why is anyone still running Yosemite? I don't believe any Macs were left with Yosemite as the maximum version of MacOS supported.

    It makes sense that Apple wouldn't test updates with a version of the OS that no one should be running anymore.

    Your Mac officially supports 10.11 (ElCapitan) or 10.13 with some modifications.

    We get a lot in return even if there was no OS updates. But my inner dad feels the need to chime in when I hear people use the word "free".

    Correct, if it runs Yosemity it runs El Capitan.

    Yosemite was one of the worst OS'es in recent years, happy it got much better after this "Vista" OS.

    How do you know the 2012 Mini isn’t supported after Mojave?
    I haven’t been keeping up with this area.

    Thank you.

    I still won’t move on from El Capitan just yet. Waiting on some compatibility issues, but I’ll probably take the Mojave plunge soon enough.

    I have followed these steps and it worked on my Yosemite
    Update:
    Apple appears to have pulled the iTunes 12.8.1 update. Some users have been able to fix Safari by opening the Finder app, clicking on Go > Go to Folder... in the top menu bar, typing in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ and dragging MobileDevice.framework to the Trash. Note: we have not tested these steps.

    Any other OS on my 2015 rMBP runs extremely hot. Yosemite is the only one that makes it usable.

    Have you checked Activity Monitor after upgrading to see what is using the CPU? I suspect it may be some application you have installed that doesn't play well with the newer OS. It may be something you're not using anymore, or have an update available that fixes it.

    If I remember right Bertrand left on his own and is doing god knows what. Forstall got thrown under the bus by Cook when he rightly refused to sign that letter.

    This is moot. Its clean installs everytime just running safari and after "indexing" is done. theres nothing to really index on a fresh install.

    Deleting this file does solve the safari problem, however; my iMac will now not recognize my iPhones.
    I have tried connecting them via usb and bluetooth.

    Any advice would be great.

    I am afraid he’s unable to respond currently, due to an unexpected Safari problem

    YES, best to rename - one character, easily deleted later, does it

    I’m running High Sierra on my 2015 rMBP - haven’t had any heat issues.

    I will note that I had previously rolled back to El Capitan on two different occasions because earlier versions of Sierra and High Sierra sucked - but the final iteration of High Sierra seems pretty solid (thankfully, since El Capitan no longer receives security updates).
