Apple released macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 on Thursday, two days after rolling out iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4, and HomePod 11.4. The update adds Messages in iCloud support, which was introduced earlier this week for the iPhone and iPad.
A virtual machine environment on the Mac allows one to run a licensed copy of Windows or some popular distributions of Linux. John shows us how to also run macOS as a virtual machine guest OS inside macOS as a host.
If you’re running macOS 10.13.4 and launch 32-bit apps you’ll see a new warning as of April 12th telling you they need to be updated. Here’s what that means, plus how you can check to see which apps you use are still 32-bit.
macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 gets us a step closer to ditching 32-bit mode for apps. In fact, you can force your Mac to run only in 64-bit mode if you aren’t afraid to pay a visit to the command line. Read on to learn how.

John has been taking his time to further ponder Apple’s High Sierra root access debacle and now shares his thoughts.
Dr. Mac had no intention of writing another column about OS upgrades this year. But, two things that happened last week forced him to reconsider. If you’ve yet to upgrade to High Sierra, read it.
While Jeff Butts doesn’t use his mid-2010 Mac Mini as often as his other Mac, it’s definitely worth noting that the elderly computer performs so well with the newer version of the operating system.
Dr. Mac offers you a peek at some of macOS 10.13 High Sierra’s more interesting new features, including his favorites from Photos, Safari, Spotlight, and more.
As much as you might want to try its shiny new features, you should never rush to install a new version of an operating system on any device you expect to use today.
