For the editions of the newsletter that comes out right after a update for macOS or iOS, there are a set of links to Apple Support pages that I include regularly. Apple updates these support pages with new information after an update.
Some of these “What’s New” pages are fairly well hidden in user guides or the developer documentation. The search on Apple’s support page is often not very effective in finding them, so I have built myself a list of links over time.
I have also included links to some support pages that I frequently use or refer others to, as well as some third party links with great reference pages.
Since I plan on updating this list when necessary, I have made a separate page:
MacAdmin Support Pages
I might have missed something or be unaware of some extra useful links, please let me know in the comments, or ping me on Twitter or in the MacAdmins Slack!
I regularly mention the MacAdmins Podcast in my Weekly News Summary. If you are a Mac Admin and not listening to the show then you are missing out on many current news and interesting guests.
They are asking for your opinion in a listener survey. Go fill it out!
