macOS Sierra LogoApple released macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on Wednesday. It’s a maintenance release that, “improves the security, stability and compatibility of your Mac.” It also includes three fixes for enterprise.

In addition to the quote above, Apple’s patch notes specify:

  • Resolves an issue that prevents making certain SMB connections from the Finder.
  • Fixes an issue that causes Xsan clients to unexpectedly restart when moving a file within a relation point on a Quantum StorNext File System.
  • Improves the stability of Terminal app.

Mac users can find the update in Software Update in the Mac App Store. I haven’t been able to update yet—if anyone has the download size for the update, drop a note in the comments. Please drop any other update notes you might have, too.

There’s also a standalone combo updater available as a 1.98GB download.

    Bryan:

    The update showed up in the Mac App Store, and including iTunes 12.6.2.20 was only 1.3GB for my MBP 2012. Ran without a hiccup.

    I updated my new 2017 Mac laptop and after it went ok, I went to update my wife’s iMac (a late 2009 iMac) but it doesn’t show the update to 10.12.6 (it did get the iTunes update) so I don’t know if it got pulled or there’s some reason it won’t show up on this iMac running 10.12.5.
