macOS High Sierra title headline

This week is the week of new releases for Apple devices, with the company not only launching iOS 11.2 to the public, but also welcoming watchOS 4.2 and tvOS 11.2 into the world.

And now it’s time for macOS High Sierra to get its next update. Today, Apple officially released macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 to the public. As we’ve seen in the previous beta seeds of the desktop operating system, this is a minor update in the grand scheme of things. It does offer some tweaks and improvements, but there are no major new forward-facing features being added to the mix.

The new software can be downloaded and installed from the Mac App Store. You will find an update to the software in the Updates tab. As is usually par for the course with Apple’s desktop OS updates, it may take several minutes to get the new software installed, so make sure you have a decent window of opportunity before you start the process.

One of the primary new additions is general compatibility improvements to third-party USB audio devices, as well as better VoiceOver navigation when viewing PDF documents in Preview. The changelog from Apple for macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 is below:

The macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, and is recommended for all users.

This update:

  • Improves compatibility with certain third-party USB audio devices
  • Improves VoiceOver navigation when viewing PDF documents in Preview
  • Improves compatibility of Braille displays with Mail

macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 is available to download now.


Apple has also released iTunes 12.7.2, the second update for iTunes 12.7, which was the last major update for iTunes that did not include the built-in App Store.

iTunes 12.7.2 seems like a minor update which includes minor app and performance improvements. You can download the latest update from the Mac App Store for free using the Software Update.
