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.

I do not have any ads on my webpage or this newsletter. However, if you want to support me and this website, then please consider buying one (or both) of my books. (Imagine it’s like a subscription fee, but you also get one or two useful books on top!)
