MacOS High Sierra presented by Craig Federighi

Senior VP Craig Federighi previews High Sierra at WWDC 2017.
It is the oldest major macOS release still fully supported by Apple.

macOS High Sierra (version 10.13) was released on September 25, 2017. It was promoted as the last version of macOS to support 32-bit software "without compromise". It also introduced the new APFS file system to take advantage of faster solid state drives and address the looming 2040 date limit from the aging Mac OS Extended file format.

High Sierra is a free upgrade for owners of supported systems from Apple Inc. Though it introduced support for Metal 2, it does not require a Metal-compliant GPU as its successor macOS Mojave does.

Ive hero20110204

Official Apple photo of Ive from 2011.

Jonathan "Jony" Ive, CBE (born February 1967) is an English designer and former Chief Design Officer (CDO) at Apple He is the leading industrial designer and conceptual mind behind the iMac, PowerBook G4, G4 Cube, MacBook, unibody MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

Jonathan Ive was born in Chingford, London. His family moved to Staffordshire where he was raised. He was brought up by his teacher father and attended Chingford Foundation School. He went on to attend Walton High School in Stafford, and then studied Industrial Design at Northumbria University (Newcastle Polytechnic at the time). Once enrolled in Walton, it became clear that he attained many technical & drawing skills through his father. During this time, Jony along with his older band mates were in a band called, " White Raven," that played soft rock. They all attended the Wildwood Fellowship Church. Ive also met his wife Heather Pegg during his high school years. She is a year younger than Ive. They married in 1987, and have twin sons. Their family now lives in San Francisco.

Jonathan himself has said that he knew he was interested in “drawing and making stuff” since around the age of 14. The idea of design was long in his mind but he was unsure as to what exactly he would design. His interests were very broad from furniture, to jewellery to even boats and cars. He was never sure where his curiosities would take him. It wasn’t until he met with various design experts that he was able to see some standard ground in wanting to further his study in product design.
