When is the actual GM version being released and not GM Candidate?
The actual release version is Monday.
Yes, final release is due on Monday. I find it very odd that Apple haven't put out a proper GM before this. I mean the GM candidate still reports itself as a beta and has debug code in it, so if they do release on Monday it will have to be a new build that is going fully public. Even if it is the same build number with only the debug code stripped out, that is a big enough change that you'd think they'd want to test it widely before going final public release with it.
Personally, I think the GM Candidate is still pretty buggy so I think we're in for a rough ride with the public release of 10.13.0.
Agreed. I've never seen a GM candidate that has so many widespread bugs reported in the forums. I had to disable Gatekeeper to make the system work correctly *most* of the time, and I still haven't been able to get all OS features working properly, even after clean installs.
No issues here, and I'm using it on a 6 year old MBP.
Not sure what you mean by "has debug code in it", but as far as the "beta" stuff goes, they can push an OTA update to "About This Mac" so that it just doesn't say "beta" anymore if this ends up being the public release build. They did it last year with Sierra.
It was necessary to download a full installer to get the final release build, which was the same as the last GM candidate, but from what I remember, none of the GM candidates of Sierra showed as beta in "About this Mac."
We're waiting patiently for the first beta of 10.13.1 on Tue. 10.13.0 is so last month.
There might be a minor update over the GM we are using but otherwise the current download is good to go. I'm only waiting for back up apps to be updated and wish the graphics drivers could match Windows on performance and features.
There absolutely will be a minor update to give the official release a new build ID that removes the word ‘beta’ from the about box.
Early 2015 MacBook Pro Retina, no issues so far on GM Candidate of macOS High Sierra. What problems do you encounter?
Constant systemwide freezes, slow restarts, all large videos take minutes to be verified before being able to play them. And more. 2014 MBP 15.
Yep me too and on 3 Macs:
rMBP 2012 core i7 15inch
rMBP 2015 13 inch
iMac mid 2011
All of them have glitches, freezes and sometimes simple interface tasks give the clock icon - not even blue beachball.
Any idea what time of the day Apple usually makes new version of the O/S available?
Well in about 8 hours from now. Sorry for not checking time conversions and everything but it would give you an idea.
I do hope they release some form of update today. Much needed because the GM has tons of issues still.
Usually 9:00 AM or 10:00 on Eastern Pacific Time (19:00 on Spain...)
Will it be released in the morning or later in the day? Any ideas based on past releases?
I'm in Asia and was hoping to install it tonight..thanks!
6 pm uk time, so around midnight in asia I think
probably around the same ios11 came out 1pm eastern 10am cupertino time
Is Mail in HS still having issues with Exchange accounts?
Yea, based on the many reports like this one, and my own experience (negative) on a brand new 2017 iMac, I'm expecting the release of High Sierra today to be followed by a growing torrent of complaints and reports of problem in the days/weeks to come. So far, the dirty waters of HS have only touched a trickle of mac users, but today Apple opens the dam and the sewage will engulf tens of thousands of unwitting Mac users.
IIRC, they just drop at a random time.
I believe around 10:00am PDT, so for my time zone (EDT), it will be 1:00pm.
in 5 hours
