The latest version of Apple’s Mac operating system, High Sierra, was released last week and includes a ton of new features and performance enhancements. It’s full of tweaks to essential apps like Safari, but the remarkable stuff is under-the-hood: a brand-new file system, as well as the groundwork for virtual-reality experiences. Today, LG’s UltraFine monitors are getting a High Sierra update to improve performance and features on MacBooks, made possible thanks to Apple’s new release. 

When updating to a new major release of macOS, it’s always a little nerve-wracking to see which of your third-party accessories and software play nice with the new update. Sometimes you’ll need to download even more software to ensure smooth compatibility for the rest of your system, including the inevitable bug fixes and firmware updates. 

To make things as smooth as possible for owners of the LG UltraFine Monitor updating to High Sierra, they’ve just dropped the LG Screen Manager – a new automatic software update program that will seamlessly integrate your display with High Sierra while improving key features. Here’s what’s new:

We’re all excited to update to Apple’s new iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad after the official public release yesterday, but making sure you have your backups in order beforehand so you don’t lose any data can sometimes be a nerve-racking task. If you happen to encounter a problem with the update– like missing data, iOS update failures or a frozen phone– there might still be a way to recover what you’ve lost and complete your iOS 11 update without issue…

PhoneRescue from iMobie allows you to access deleted and lost data on iOS 11, and even browse through data in your iCloud backups to pull individual files as needed. And with the latest release that brings support for the software on iOS 11 and High Sierra, there is also now a built-in iOS Repair feature that will fix the most common iOS update issues– such as Recovery Mode problems, phones stuck on the Apple logo during reboot, and other iOS update failures– all while preserving your data in the process.
