MacVoices #17183: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Upgrading to High Sierra

Joe Kissell talks about why you should and shouldn’t buy his latest book, Take Control of Upgrading to High Sierra. The process should be easy, but as with all OS upgrades, there are a few pitfalls that could bite if you’re not careful. Joe discusses a few of those pitfalls that include a lack of backups, and the new APFS file system. Whether you should upgrade in place or “nuke and pave”, what features Joe is looking forward to, and a book bundle to make sure you are ready for all of the major OS updates are all included.
