The company introduced Sierra during June’s World Wide Developer Conference. Some aspects, such as Universal Clipboard and Auto Unlock, are designed specifically for use with iPhone and Apple Watch. Apple Pay will be usable on the Web for the first time on a Mac.

You won’t find Sierra as an update in the Mac App Store. Instead, you’ll need to search for it or use our handy-dandy link. Apple has a link for checking hardware compatibility, too.

Dave Hamilton, Jeff Gamet, and I discussed some best practices for updating on Tuesday’s Daily Observations.

  1. Hello Bryan:

    They are now showing macOS X Sierra on the Mac App Store, available for download.

    As fate would have it, I am in a part of the world, for a change, where I can download the latest OS X version on release day, a rarity for me, however I got a notice whilst working the other day and using EndNote 7 (a preferred reference manager used in academia) that there is a compatibility issue with Sierra, and Thomson issuing guidance not to upgrade to the latest OS, unless one wishes to stop working on grants and manuscripts or otherwise generate a livelihood. This is a first for unresolved compatibility issues, in my case.

    So, I shall have to content myself with a vicarious enjoyment of the upgrade by reading OS X – related posts on TMO, pending a fix to either Endnote 7 or, worse, the release of Endnote 8 in bloody November.

    By which time, most major bug fixes shall have been resolved and the US will have elected their next president.

  2. My condolences Was95. I used Endnote in my previous job and it is a screaming pain-in-the-ass, even under the best of circumstances. If you wait for for all the bugs in Endnote to be resolved, you’ll never upgrade! 😉
