Apple Releases macOS High Sierra 10.13.4

Apple released macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 with support for external graphics processors, and support for Business Chat conversations in Messages as the two tentpole features. This release also contains a number of additional features, as well as bug fixes and stability improvements.

To update to macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 on a supported Mac, just head into the Mac App Store, select the Updates tab, and then select the new software. That should start the download. To fully install it, though, you may need to block off a bit of time to get the upgrade fully present on your machine.
