Apple has already been seeding beta builds of macOS 10.13.4 to developers and public beta testers since quite a while. The company released the sixth beta of macOS 10.13.4 earlier this week as well. However, despite numerous beta releases from Apple, the company has not provided any official changelog of the update.
Inadvertently though, Apple has published the final release note of macOS 10.13.4 in French, Polish, and German languages. The release note points to the next minor release of High Sierra adding support for iMessage Business Chat and adding support for external GPUs. There are some bug fixes to go along with it and some minor enhancements like the ability to sort Safari bookmarks by name or URL and more.
A loosely translated change-log in English from 9to5Mac is available below:
- Adds support for Business Chat in Messages in the United States and Canada.
- Adds support for external graphics processors (eGPU).
- Resolves a graphical corruption issue that affected some apps on iMac Pro.
- Adds keyboard shortcut to let you move to the rightmost open tab by pressing Command + 9 in Safari.
- Sort Safari bookmarks by name or URL by right-clicking and choosing ‘Sort By’.
- Fixes a bug that may prevent links from appearing in Messages.
- Improves the protection of confidential data by automatically filling in usernames and passwords fields in web forms only when they are selected in Safari
- Displays warnings in the Safari Smart Search Field when interacting with forms that require credit card data or passwords on unencrypted web pages
- Displays additional information describing how your personal data is used by certain features
The leak of release note means that the final release of macOS 10.13.4 is around the corner. Apple will likely release the final build of macOS 10.13.4 at its event next week on March 27th. Apple will probably talk about eGPU support in macOS at the event as well.
Native support for eGPU means that owners of MacBook featuring a Thunderbolt 3 port can use external GPU enclosures and connect more powerful GPUs to it for better rendering or gaming performance.
