To Upgrade or not to Upgrade, That's the question!!!
Find out what to expect, and whether it's worth the upgrade if you're already happy with Sierra.
You might wonder why there's any debate at all. You've got to remember that there's always a bit of work involved with updating a Mac, and that it can be pretty difficult to downgrade once you've done it. Then there is the fact that often, despite thorough beta testing, there can still be issues with the early versions of the software and that may well cause problems for you. So you want to be sure before you jump to the latest version.
On an upgrade that we performed only recently on January 8, 2018, after software testing, we have identified some Operating system flaws of High Sierra on an Imac and on Macbooks. There is a screen flick that is observed within Chrome and some graphic applications. Apart from that there is an issue of Hard disk that have NTFS partitions not getting recognized in High Sierra, only external drives that were on Mac Osx Jounalled partitions were accessible. We also found out that ISO image files of original software would not work anymore and was not compatible. These are just some of the few issues.
We tried to find a work around but failed, we had to then downgrade to Sierra. This is a complicated process and is best handled by a professional.
Here at Macbook Service Center Abu Dhabi, we pride on being upto date with the latest information and tips for our loyal customers.
Do unit conversions in Spotlight on your Macbook
As well as being able to do calculations in Spotlight, in Yosemite it gets an extra trick: unit conversions. You can do specific unit conversions if you need to – "13 stone in lbs", say – but it's also intelligent enough that in many cases if you just give it the amount and unit you want to convert, it will suggest not just the likely conversion but also plenty of alternates.
Type in '$1299' and you'll immediately be told what that is in Sterling (based presumably on what's set as your native currency in the Language & Region pane of System Preferences), and then when the window folds down to show more results, you'll see Euros, Yen and so on.
Reveal Hidden Options On Menu Bar on your Imac
The menu bar is one of the best places to quickly access an app from, and if you want to get more use out of it, consider holding down the Option key and clicking on an icon. It will reveal additional information about the app. It is most useful if you’re using a Macbook. Hold down the Option key and click the battery icon to see how it’s doing health wise.
Talk to and listen to your MacBook !
Before macOS Sierra, the Mac's ability to listen to you as well as talk was already really impressive with its Dictation tool. But now, that's been blown out of the water by Siri's long-awaited arrival on Apple's desktops and laptops.
By either pressing and holding the Command and Space or clicking the icon on your Dock or Menu Bar, you can summon the same Siri you've grown accustomed to on your iPhone. However, this version of Siri is, in ways, much more powerful.
Beyond the standard query that might give you the weather or who's up in the in playoff game, Siri on macOS Sierra can toggle system functions like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth or even pull up individuals files stored on your system based on what you tell Siri about the file.
Siri can even launch or close apps for you as well as store the results of your queries inside the Notifications area of the OS for later use. Just press Command+Space and get to asking. Here at Macbook Service Center Abu Dhabi, we look forward to the future and we like to keep it simple.
Run Windows on MacBook
We know, we know - who wants to run
Windows? But sometimes it's handy, whether to play the latest games or
run some software like MS Visio or MS Project that is not available on Mac. Here at Macbook Service Center Abu Dhabi we configure dual operating systems for you that you can access with the swipe of your fingers.
Sign PDFs right in Mail on a Macbook
It might be the 21st century, but we're still using squiggles on a piece of paper to agree to all manner of things. If you are emailed a PDF to sign, though, you don't have to faff about printing it, signing it, then scanning it back in: you can actually sign it right in Mail.
Drag a PDF into the email you're sending, hover over it then at the top right you'll see a little button appear; click it, and you get a range of Markup options, including one for signing documents. Best of all, you can either add your signature by holding a signed piece of paper up to the webcam on your Mac – and it does a great job of cutting it out of the background – or by drawing on your trackpad.
Got an iPad stylus? Try using that instead of your finger! Here at Macbook Service Center Abu Dhabi, we bring your office to your home.
Batch rename several files like photos.
In versions of OS X before Yosemite, renaming a group of files at once either meant third-party software or rolling your own rename script using something like Automator or AppleScript. Now, though, you can just select a group of files and then select Rename either from the right-click contextual menu or from the drop-down button marked with a cog icon in Finder windows.
When you do, you get the option of adding text, replacing text, or applying a format such as a name and an automatically incrementing counter. Apple Service Center Abu Dhabi also organizes several trainings, you may want to check out their schedule at Apple Store Yas Mall.
