No big news this week, which is a nice change.

The first iPhone SDK dropped ten years ago this week. Craig Hockenberry wrote a wonderful retrospective which is worth reading.

Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-03-02

A strange thing happened last Friday (a few hours after the last news summary). Apple updated the kbase article HT208020 – the infamous one that killed imaging. Then the article was reverted back to the old version after a few hours. Presumably some news for 10.13.4 were released prematurely.

Mark Melaccio grabbed screen shots.

This week I was travelling to London for MacAD.UK. So maybe I missed some interesting links. If I did, please let me know and I will include the link next week.

MacAD.UK was great. I had a great time meeting many people, some I already knew and some I had only met virtually so far. Great presentations, hope to see you all again next year!

There was some news this week about Apple refocusing the next major OS updates on bug fixing. Will this be (High) Sierra’s Snow Leopard?

Getting ready for my MacAD.UK presentation next week. Looking forward to meeting some of you there!

This week was a bit quieter and given the news from the last few weeks, that is probably a good thing. Quite a few very interesting and useful articles, though.

Ed Marczak has put together a great site with information for the ‘new’ Mac Admin: Mac Admin Info

Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-01-26

Another update week! macOS 10.13.3 and iOS 11.2.5 dropped along with the usual other updates. Security Updates for Sierra and El Capitan bring Meltdown fixes and (maybe) APFS support for Sierra.

The end of one beta cycle is the begin of the next. macOS 10.13.4 and iOS 11.3 started in beta. Apple seems so proud of this update that they put up an iOS 11.3 preview. Also an announcement that the macOS Server application will be severely reduced in functionality in a future release.
