Updating imac 3
"You could easily have someone who doesn't reboot their computer for months," says Reed."That's not a good thing."WIRED reached out to Apple about the flaws in its patch, but hasn't yet heard back.Apple could continue to sell it as-is for a while too before even discontinuing it or updating it with USB-C and other new specs.
But the shoddiness of Apple's patch joins a disturbing pattern of security missteps in High Sierra's code.
On Monday, the company added an extra warning to its security update page for the "root" bug: "If you recently updated from mac OS High Sierra 10.13 to 10.13.1, reboot your Mac to make sure the Security Update is applied properly."The bug in Apple's bug-fix isn't, of course, as bad as its original "root" problem.
For one, it's not clear how many High Sierra users might have installed the security patch before upgrading to the most recent version of the operating system, or even if everyone who did so is affected.
Apple still shared that the current i Macs will be replaced sometime this year with updated ‘pro’ models.
Apple has “great” new i Macs in the pipeline, slated for release “this year”, including configurations specifically targeted at large segments of the pro market.
