Download: Final Version Of tvOS 11.4.1, macOS 10.13.6, watchOS 4.3.2 Released
The final versions of tvOS 11.4.1, macOS 10.13.6, and watchOS 4.3.2 are now available to download with immediate effect.
The releases mean that all compatible Apple TVs, Macs, and Apple Watches can now start getting to grips with the latest versions of their respective firmware.
tvOS 11.4.1: tvOS is one of Apple’s most interesting platforms. It may not be the most popular in terms of platform or hardware adoption but those who actually use Apple TV love the device and everything that it offers.
They also love to see it grow through new features embedded within tvOS. Unfortunately, Apple isn’t reinventing the wheel with this release or bringing anything substantially new. This release does, however, offer stability and the removal of multiple bugs and issues in order to make the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K HDR experience a lot smoother.
macOS 10.13.6: With macOS 10.14 now out in the public domain from a testing perspective, macOS 10.13.6 was never going to be feature-packed and full of new goodies. It is, however, packed with stability and under-the-hood improvements, all of which are designed to solidify the platform and ensure that macOS Mojave has the opportunity to arrive in a seamless fashion with minimal fuss or disruption. If bug fixes and security updates are your jam, then macOS 10.13.6 is where you need to be looking.
Update: macOS 10.13.6 also features support for AirPlay 2 for iTunes, requires latest iTunes 12.8 release, which is also available to download.
watchOS 4.3.2: Apple Watch owners universally seem to agree that watchOS 5.0 is going to be a decent step forward for Apple’s wearable hardware. In order to arrive without issue, watchOS 4.3.2 has been tasked with setting the scene in terms of stability. And that is exactly what has happened. With this release, we have the usual bug fixes and generic improvements that look to stabilize the watchOS experience ahead of its next major release.
So, we have a slew of new and final releases from Apple, but nothing which particularly sets the world alight in terms of new functionality. Instead, what we have is a number of platform updates all designed to bring stability and squash as many known bugs as possible. If you have compatible Mac, Apple TV, or Apple Watch hardware, then you can grab macOS 10.13.4, watchOS 4.3.2, and tvOS 11.4.1 with immediate effect from the settings section for each of the platforms from the device itself.
