macOS High Sierra10.13.6

21 October 2019

An Operating System Made by Apple.

Overview

Mac OS High Sierra launched with a few new features such as an enhanced Apple Photos with new capabilities and many security updates and fixes. There were also quite a few tweaks and fixes that made users want to get the latest Mac OS High Sierra download at the time.

The Mac OS High Sierra release date was September 25, 2017. Its features and changes are mainly in the background of this release, so users won’t see an awful lot of differences between Sierra and High Sierra.

Mac OS High Sierra compatibility starts with late 2009 iMacs and Macbooks, and mid to late 2010 Macbook Pros and Macbook Airs. Its requirements are at least 2 GB of RAM, and 14.3 GB of disk space.

High Sierra is still available for download for a clean install. The installer also allows for system reloads if you don’t want to reinstall from scratch. This release has interesting features that users might not notice at first as the real changes were done to the core of the OS. 

When making comparisons such as Mac OS Mojave vs High Sierra it is important to note that both versions of the OS still have support for 32 bit applications.

Photos

Mac OS High Sierra brings with it changes to Photos. Photos now has an updated sidebar as well as some new editing options and tools. 

Another enhancement is that Photos now synchronizes tagged people with your devices that are running iOS 11.

Mail

Other improvements include Mail and Spotlight search enhancements. This includes results with with Top Hits. Big system changes and optimizations means that Mail requires 35% less storage space. 

Usability changes like Mail's compose window also add extra levels of functionality to the app. Mail now has a split-screen mode.

Safari

"Intelligent Tracking Prevention" is a new feature that utilizes machine learning which assists with blocking unauthorized sources from tracking the user activity. 

Safari now blocks auto playing videos from starting automatically. "Reader Mode" has the option of being switched to always-on mode. 

Another good backend change is that Safari 11 also supports WebAssembly in this release.

Notes

An update to the Notes app now allows the user to add tables to notes. A note can also be pinned to the beginning of a list so that it shows as being prioritized.

Siri

Siri’s voice has been upgraded and now features a more human like expressive range. Again, machine learning is used to help Siri to better understand user interactions.

Siri now carries your experience over to all Apple devices, giving you a much better integration than in Mac OS Sierra.

I am having trouble locating and downloading the High Sierra update. Directions say to download it "direct." What does that mean? If they "don't allow download of High Sierra" why don't they just say that. What else is available. ARRRGH

Most links to older versions of MacOS in APP store have been removed. Apple wants you to waste your money buying NEW crap. Like they pay $150 to make it in China, and sell it for at least $2,000 in the USA. THAT is why Apple has $600 Billion in cash. Anyway I found a DMG for High Sierra on MediaFire. Don't you people know how to use Google search ??/

What's the point of having a comment section if nobody that runs this site reads it. From the comments, this page has had wrong information on it since May and it still has the bad link on Oct 2, 2020.

I have a recently upgraded 2011 iMac with 32G memory and 1 TB DD storage, making it blazing fast (a lot faster than my much newer Macboook Pro) However, I cannot install Catalina due to the incompatible original graphics card, so I need High Sierra or earlier (I have El Capitan, which works fine, but that will not run the latest version of Office). But it looks like Apple has pulled the rug out from under a large number of its customers by (inexplicably) removing it and all older version of its operating systems from the app store., contrary to what this page says.

This link does not work. Click on it and you get a dialogue box that says you need to choose an app (Music is the default) to open it. Choose Music and you get the message that the installer is not available on the App Store. It was available a couple of months ago, though.
