Apple released macOS High Sierra to the public recently, and now the company has released a supplemental update for the software.
Today, Apple officially released a supplemental update for macOS High Sierra 10.13, which is aimed specifically at boosting stability and reliability in the desktop operating system, while also boosting overall security in the software as well. Here are the key details Apple listed in the changelog:
To download and install the free update, macOS High Sierra users simply need to boot up the Mac App Store, go to the Updates tab, and update from there. It is also worth noting that while Apple is naming three specific fixes and tweaks, there is also expectations that this update will fix security issues relating to the Apple File System. As noted by iMore, this supplementary update should address that security concern and patch it up.
The new software is available now, so if you’ve got some time, go ahead and update, especially if you’re concerned about the AFPS security vulnerability, which is detailed right here. Apple has seen a couple of different security issues with macOS High Sierra since its public release, but the company seems prepared to patch the issues as they are addressed. The fact Apple already has a fix for the AFPS vulnerability is indicative of that, at least.
