I am still holding off and not updating to High Sierra due to all the bugs. This is the first time that I have taken so long to do so, but seeing all the issues that my friends are having, I’ll wait until 10.13.3 or 10.13.4 drops. In the meantime, I got frustrated by not seeing all the new emoji that people are using…
Isn’t it ironic that so many people have issues connecting to Wi-Fi networks under various version of macOS on their MacBooks, while my issue is the exact opposite — I cannot disconnect Wi-Fi when tethering from my iPad.
Pressing “Disconnect” from the menu does nothing. Turning off Wi-Fi only reinstates the connection when I turn it back on. The only method that works for me is sleeping the computer1 — it’s disconnected after waking.
Frustrating, as is everything that doesn’t work correctly.

This applies to older versions of macOS too, as well as signed apps.
Patrick submitted everything needed for a fix to Apple. I wonder if they’ll also patch older versions of macOS. Hope they do, since I’m not planning on updating to High Sierra anytime soon.
The new macOS Sierra 10.12 is ready to download and install from the Mac App Store. Before you do the latter, please remember to backup your drive — I suggest two backups at the least. Personally, I always make sure my Time Machine has a fresh backup and I also clone my system drive with Carbon Copy Cloner. Better safe than sorry.

P.S. The Dev GM 2 and final build numbers are the same — both are
16A323. The public beta GM is an older build.
I’ve been thinking about what Apple showed us at this year’s WWDC 2016, and I can’t help but be satisfied with what they presented. iOS and macOS seems to have finally been accepted as mature operating systems, and I haven’t seem much criticism, nor any ‘Apple is doomed’ stories.
