Apple on Thursday released macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, which is the fourth major update since the release of macOS High Sierra for the Mac last fall.
The update can be installed by going to the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store on Macs already running High Sierra, or downloaded from the Mac App Store on Macs running earlier versions of macOS.
macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 brings numerous bug fixes, performance improvements, and new features.
The macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 update improves the stability, performance, and security of your Mac, and it is recommended for all users. This update:
– Adds support for Business Chat conversations in Messages in the US
– Adds support for external graphics processors (eGPUs)
– Fixes graphics corruption issues affecting certain apps on iMac Pro
– Allows jumping to the right-most open tab using Command+9 in Safari
– Enables sorting Safari bookmarks by name or URL by right clicking and choosing “Sort by”
– Fixes an issue that may prevent web link previews from appearing in Messages
– Helps protect privacy by only AutoFilling usernames and passwords after selecting them in a web form field in Safari
– Displays warnings in the Safari Smart Search Field when interacting with password or credit card forms on non-encrypted web pages
– Displays privacy icons and links to explain how your data will be used and protected when Apple features ask to use your personal information
In addition to the above listed changes, the update brings the smoke cloud wallpaper that previously was only available on the iMac Pro. It also debuts a warning prompt when opening up a 32-bit app. Apple plans to phase out 32-bit app support in macOS in the near future, much like it did with 32-bit apps.
