Apple is releasing macOS High Sierra today. This means it’s time to get ready to upgrade your Mac to the new operating system, and learn its features. These two Take Control books will guide you through the upgrade and introduce you to the new features.
Take Control of Upgrading to High Sierra
Although Apple has made upgrading to each new operating system easier and safer, there is still room for things to go wrong. In Take Control of Upgrading to High Sierra, Mac expert Joe Kissell outlines a process that will take the stress out of upgrading, showing you how to make the switch more efficiently and in the way that’s right for you. Learn what you need to know before you begin, how to prepare your Mac and make backups, and be ready to make decisions about installation questions.
In this book, you’ll find out more about the changes Apple has made to the Mac’s file system in High Sierra, and what impact that might have on your upgrade. You’ll also find information about possible impediments to upgrading—including minimum system requirements, software incompatibilities, and lack of disk space—and how to resolve those issues.
Take Control of High Sierra
Looking for a high-quality, in-depth guide to High Sierra? Look no further than Take Control of High Sierra by former Macworld editor Scholle McFarland! An expanded version of Scholle’s popular Crash Course on macOS (previously for Sierra and El Capitan), Take Control of High Sierra covers all the changes Apple has made in High Sierra, and how best to adapt them to your own needs.
You’ll learn great details about High Sierra, like how it’s now possible to take live photos of a FaceTime conversation, type instead of talk to Siri, and easily share files through iCloud. You’ll also learn about the big changes Apple has made behind the scenes in High Sierra, including rolling out a new file system, improved video support, and support for VR. In addition, Scholle explains what has changed in Apple apps, including Safari, Mail, and Photos.
