Over at MacPerformanceGuide.com, I’ve advised users, particularly profeessional users, not to upgrade to macOS High Sierra for at least 6 months.
Apple quality control has gone seriously downhill over the past 5 years. The most recent evidence for that is exposing cleartext passwords + a new zero day exploit and having to rush out a fix. It speaks volumes.
Below is a camera-related issue issue I received in email today: you might not be able to update firmware for Sony cameras when running macOS HighSierra. Sony ought to be more clear, is it “may not” [sic] or “will not”, or something else. Given Sony’s rootkit installer approach, it’s probably a security issue stopping it. Cameras should update firmware in camera, like Nikon and Canon do. Approaches that in essence require operating system kernel access are incredibly badly designed given the security risks.
