MacOS High Sierra 10.13

What’s new in MacOS High Sierra 10.13?

High Sierra is relatively light on front-facing user features. As suggested by its name, High Sierra is positioned as a refinement of last year’s Sierra release.

For High Sierra, there is a lot of under-the-hood work and introduction of new core technologies that don’t necessarily correspond to major user functionality today, but offer performance improvements today and lay the groundwork for larger changes in the future.

Support for space-saving HEVC and HEIF media file formats

To keep in step with iOS, High Sierra also adds OS-level support for the new space-saving media formats: HEVC for video and HEIF for photos. The new industry standard formats retain visual quality but use a much smaller file size, saving disk space.

iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and the 2017 iPad Pros capture photos and videos in HEIF and HEVC, so you’ll want to upgrade your Macs to High Sierra for the best cross-platform experience.

New web browsing features in Safari 11

New web browsing features in Safari 11

Whilst users can update to Safari 11 without updating the operating system, it is marketed as a High Sierra feature and included with the installation. Safari 11 brings new intelligent tracking prevention tools to limit cookie tracking, and prevents website videos from auto-playing.

If a video has audio, by default, Safari will not allow it to start playing without user interaction. There is a new per-site preferences pane to change the default configuration for a domain. You can also disable content blockers on a per-site basis, automatically start Reader mode and manage permissions like camera and microphone access.

Share files with friends using iCloud

Coming closer to a full replacement for Dropbox, High Sierra lets you share files to friends and family with a simple public URL, for any file stored in iCloud Drive. If allowed, invited users can even edit the file contents to collaborate on a particular document.

On a related note, if you use Family Sharing, you can now upgrade to a shared iCloud Storage plan. Rather than paying for individual buckets of space, share a 200GB or 2TB monthly plan with up to six people in your family. In most cases, this will save money over buying individual plans for every person in the family.

Miscellaneous

  • During a FaceTime Video call, save a Live Photo of a significant moment with a click.
  • Top Hit suggestions when searching in Mail.
  • AirPlay, Night Shift, and Picture-In-Picture buttons on the Touch Bar when watching videos.
  • New Lock Screen item in the Apple menu.
  • Mail compresses its database to save disk space.
  • Mark iMessages as read from their notification banner.
  • Universal Clipboard now works between multiple Macs, not just between Mac and iOS.
  • Type to Siri option added to Accessibility preferences.

Conclusion

High Sierra continues the trend of minor updates for macOS, which makes sense given that it is Apple’s most mature operating system. APFS is a major architectural update but it doesn’t feel like Apple is really taking advantage of its new capabilities just yet. The Photos improvements are welcomed for users invested in iCloud Photo Library, and help cater to more advanced users too.

Some apps may be incompatible with High Sierra due to the APFS migration, especially apps that concern themselves with low-level disk cloning, so be aware of potential pitfalls before taking the plunge. As always, make sure to have backups of your data before updating.

As ever, Apple is not charging a penny for the High Sierra update, so it’s hard to not recommend it. It may not have any revolutionary changes, but it continues Apple’s efforts to refine and optimise the macOS platform for the better.
