Apple macOS 10.13.1 and iOS 11.1 are out

Apple macOS 10.13.1 and iOS 11.1 are out

Aside from the usual silliness (like 70 new emojis? like, we really need more useless emojis) both of these address recently found KRACK Wifi vulnerabilities.

 

So get (un)kracking...

 

Ars Technica: Apple releases macOS 10.13.1 and iOS 11.1 with a KRACK fix and new emoji

 

Edit: The macOS update could take about a half hour, despite saying 2 minutes, then blanking the screen for 5 minutes, then saying 36, then 17, then 26...
Just let it run until you get a proper login screen.

Apple's concept of installtion time estimates is like the Red Room in Twin Peaks.

As soon as I saw there's going to be new emojis, I couldn't wait to update (eyeroll). Smiley Happy

It's like the coffee that changes states: fluid, solid, thick... A metaphor for the changing speeds....

At least Apple knows how to ask if you want to restore apps at your next logon instead of opening every friggen thing in the world that you didn't close at log off. -.-

Yes, I am refering to this horrible FCU on Win10.

Most of that is all from FreeBSD. Apple basically added some apps, created a GUI engine (Cocoa); as well as a slightly modified the file system that is somewhat like their old Apple HFS system of data forks, but using dot-files and special folder types.

I just recently discovered that updates done by cli are quite a bit faster.  🚂

I ran the OS update for my Mac laptop, and it was fairly fast.

After downloading the OS updates, MS told me there were updates for the Office suite (which I need to have on my Mac).  Those puppies took over 8 hours to download. What the fork, Microsoft???

Uh oh... looks like Level3 with a bad route to MS again

I've always had trouble updating any MS related stuff. It always takes so forking long.  The Office files weren't all that large either -- less than 2 GB (ETA: total. One was 1 GB and the others all were less and added to about 1 GB).  Grrrr.
