  • A Little Mac History: Naming OS Versions

    Versions of macOS have had both public and private internal code names since OS X was released as a beta version for $29.95 on September 13, 2000. This makes it easier than saying “I am running macOS 10.13.2.” They started naming the operating system (OS) with names of big cats until 2013, when they switched to names of locations in Apple’s home state of California, likely because they were running out of large members of the feline species.

    The first Mac OS X Public Beta was internally code named “Kodiak.”

  • macOS High Sierra

    macOS High Sierra (version 10.13) is the fourteenth major release of macOS, Apple Inc.'s desktop operating system for Macintosh computers. The successor to macOS Sierra, it was announced at the WWDC 2017 on June 5, 2017. It was released to the public on September 25, 2017. The name "High Sierra" refers to the High Sierra region in California. As with Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion and El Capitan, the name also alludes to its status as a refinement of its predecessor, focused on performance improvements and technical updates rather than user features.

    APFS (Apple File System) is Apple’s new and modern file system that was introduced in macOS 10.13 (A.K.A. macOS High Sierra). It is a replacement for HFS+ (Hierarchical File System Plus) which has been around since 1998 and came out when the first iMac appeared, which in turn was preceded by HFS (Hierarchical File System) which appeared in 1985 when the Mac Plus appeared, and MFS (Macintosh File System) which appeared in 1984 alongside the original Macintosh. APFS is meant to be the default file system for all Apple products. In fact, if you’ve got an iPad or an iPhone, you’ve been running APFS since March 2017 when it was introduced as p
