Apple is to release the macOS Sierra for the public on September 20. This means the Mac users still have enough time for the upgrade to enhance the chances of every app running smoothly on their devices. The macOs Sierra will only be made available to a few of the MacBooks. Anything that falls outside of this range will not support the macOs Sierra. The OS X El Captain is will be the end of the line for these device users.
Here is how the users can prepare for the new macOS Sierra :
Users need to check the compatibility of their devices:
The following Macs are compatible with macOS Sierra:
MacBook – Late 2009 and newer
iMac – Late 2009 and newer
MacBook Air – 2010 and newer
MacBook Pro – 2010 and newer
Mac Mini – 2010 and newer
Mac Pro – 2010 and newer
Users should always create a data backup in the case of an upgrade:
You should never put all that hard-earned data at risk. The fastest and easiest way to create a backup for your data in the MacBooks is by using the Time Machine to an Apple Time Capsule or some other connected device. this can be done either through the network or without it if the device is directly connected to the MacBook. You can also use a cloud backup. Though how long it would take seriously depends on how fast your internet connection is. The very least you can do is connect your device to a USB device and copy all your data to a more secure location.
Users need to free up a lot of space for the upgrade to be actually downloaded
Users can start the cleansing process by deleting the trash which will give them megabytes. If the user wants to get rid of the system caches, and other temporary files, they can run a tool like the CCleaner for Mac. It is available for free. If you happen to have stored quite a lot of duplicated items on your system, use a tool like the Gemini 2. If you are not sure that you have duplicated data, you can user the Gemini 2 trial version to find out. You can also take the simpler path of looking for everything you have downloaded or installed and no longer need and just delete them.
Thou must not forget thy secret codes or be damned
If the user has an Apple ID, he will need it to install the upgrade. If you have, by any chance encrypted your backup, you need to make sure that the password isn’t stored on the Macbook.
You will need a very good and stable internet connection:
The macOs Sierra will be consisting of several GBs, so you have to have a good internet connection to kick start the upgrade
Though it is highly recommended that the users wait for a few days to install the upgrade as the site will be getting brutally hammered on the day, the new macOs Sierra gets launched.
