Minor Update Comes to MacOS High Sierra for The 2018 MacBook Pro

For those of you who have the 2018 MacBook Pro, there is a new update to MacOS High Sierra out for you to download.  The update to High Sierra 10.13.6 is the second supplemental update to the current version of MacOS and comes just weeks from the release next major release, MacOS Mojave.

The updated build is aimed only at the 2018 MacBook Pro with the release notes stating that the release, “improves the stability and reliability of MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.”  What exactly was improved is not discussed in the release notes.

If you have a 2018 MacBook Pro, you should do a backup of your system to make sure all is safe and sound.  You can then download the update through the Mac App Store on your laptop and install it, which should take about 15 minutes to complete.

Supplemental updates to MacOS are not new but are reasonably rare.  At most there will be one or two (this is number two for MacOS High Sierra) for each major build.  That said, this update probably will be the last that High Sierra sees unless there is a major show stopping bug found or a major security flaw.

Finally, note that this update is only for the 2018 MacBook Pro.  It won’t be available to download on other variants of the MacBook Pro.
