Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-04-13

More ‘Spring Update Fallout’ this week. Users will now get warning when they launch a 32-bit app. Apple is updating older versions of OS X to install the High Sierra Installer app.

If you would rather get the weekly newsletter by email, you can subscribe to the Scripting OS X Weekly Newsletter here!! (Same content, delivered to your Inbox once a week.)


I published the first “Weekly News Summary for Admins” a year ago on this blog. The email newsletter came later in June.

The summary now has a few hundred readers every week. They are split fairly evenly across the weblog and the email newsletter. I have gotten lots of friendly and grateful feedback both from reader and authors.

So, thank you, readers, for your attention, and thank you all the MacAdmin authors who are documenting and sharing their opinions and solutions for everyone!

If you enjoy the news summary, then you can do me a favor by recommending it to another Mac Admin, retweeting it on Twitter or sharing it on your favorite social media. Thank you!

(Now back to the normal program.)

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!)

If you have already bought and read the books, please leave a review on the iBooks Store. Reviews are important to help new potential readers make the purchase decision. Thank you (again)!
