Following weeks of beta seeds, Apple has seen fit to release the next big update for its desktop operating system.

Today, Apple has officially released macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 to the public. It’s not a major update, with a lot of forward-facing features added to the mix, but it does bring some new items along with it. That includes native support for external graphics processor (eGPU), as well as bringing support for Business Chat in iMessage, which will allow users to quickly get in touch with a business directly through the Messages app.

To update to macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 on a supported Mac, just head into the Mac App Store, select the Updates tab, and then select the new software. That should start the download. To fully install it, though, you may need to block off a bit of time to get the upgrade fully present on your machine.

There are some new additions, including support for external GPUs (eGPU), includes the desktop wallpaper originally available only on the iMac Pro, and also includes Business Chat in iMessage.

macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 may not be a major update to the desktop operating system, but it’s good to see Apple going to work behind-the-scenes to refine the experience, squash bugs, and hopefully enhance the overall quality of the software. Of course, all eyes will be on the next update to the desktop OS, which Apple will officially preview in June of this year, during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

Are you planning on upgrading your Mac as soon as you can? Or will you wait a bit to see if there are any issues in the public launch of macOS High Sierra 10.13.4?
