Apple seeds macOS High Sierra Golden Master Candidate (build 15A372) on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

One of many known issues in macOS High Sierra is related to the new Apple File System (APFS):

  • Some third-party applications may not correctly recognize volumes that are formatted using APFS.

We’re jumping in head-first, again, into the latest macOS High Sierra build. Let’s see waht else is still broken.

From Apple Knowledge Base:

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps—all without a Mac or PC.

In a way, iTunes the Application is becoming less complicated. There are some who uses iTunes to keep a copy of their iOS Apps, but I bet that majority of iPhone and iPad users don’t use iTunes to download iOS Apps.
