Apple releases macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra beta 3 to developers

Late yesterday, “seeded the third beta of macOS 10.13.1 to developers,” Chance Miller reports for 9to5Mac.

“The release comes a day after the company released the third betas of iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, and tvOS 11.1 to developers and public beta users,” Miller reports. “macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements and has yet to showcase any major user-facing features.”

“macOS High Sierra 10.13.1,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors, “also introduces a range of new Unicode 10 emoji like crazy face, pie, pretzel, t-rex, vampire, exploding head, face vomiting, shushing face, love you gesture, brain, scarf, zebra, giraffe, fortune cookie, pie, hedgehog, and more.”

Clover reports, “The new emoji are also available in iOS 11.1 and watchOS 4.1.”

Apple releases third iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, and tvOS 11.1 betas – October 16, 2017


    1. Fusion drives are obsolete and Apple obviously is less than interested in serving its legacy Mac users. It is so uninterested in supporting Macs that it goes out of its way to put up roadblocks preventing excellent companies like OWC from offering system upgrade kits to replace the creaking old Fusion Drive kludges.

      For the few Macs left that allow for convenient user drive replacement, the right answer is SSD startup volume and completely separate hard drive(s) for data archives. More and more Apple forces your secondary drives even on desktop machines to be external or NAS.

      I would stop waiting for Apple to fix the Fusion mess. Move on. Apple doesn’t care about your needs, you have to look out for dead end technologies that Apple tosses out every time you turn around.

      1. No, Apple will be supporting Fusion drives. That’s a known.

        As for Fusion drives being ‘obsolete’, they’re still available, still sell, still beat any old spinning hard drive, still speed up any Mac as a replacement for the old HD, still working in many previous Mac models, still considerably cheaper than SSDs. – – So I have to disagree. Apple know this.
