FAQ: How to get the macOS ‘High Sierra’ public beta

Today, 07:55 AM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Within days, Apple will release the first public beta of macOS High Sierra, the desktop operating system slated for a fall debut.

In recent weeks, the National Health Service saw its computing systems fail because they relied too much on unprotected Windows systems. This morning we learned that the UK’s Metropolitan Police force still uses over 18,000 computers running Windows XP. The key police force of the UK’s biggest city is therefore currently vulnerable to cyber-attack.
