In this article, I’m going to show you how to install macOS High Sierra on VMware on Windows 10. In WWDC17, Apple has announced their new products and some cool features. macOS High Sierra 10.13 is one of the announcements at WWDC 2017.
This year’s version of macOS is more of a maintenance release than a full-on new version. Called High Sierra, the new operating system is more about refinements than new features, as it aims to make your Mac more reliable, capable, and responsive while laying the foundation for future innovations in the worlds of VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality).
But of course, there will be cool stuff to play with right away. Even if there aren’t any major new features, High Sierra is still packed with a ton of cool stuff we can’t wait to get our hands on when it launches later this fall. Here are six of the best things about the newest version of macOS.
