Apple releases important updates

A couple of days ago Apple released important updates for Macs, iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and Apple TVs.

It is very important to keep your devices updated.  This is really the only security your Mac needs but if you do not keep it updated your device becomes vulnerable to increasing threats.

iOS 10.3 for your iPhone & iPad brings not only important security updates, but fundamentally changes the way your device's storage is formatted.  This is a huge change - every file on your device will be re-layed out within its hard drive.  You may notice some speed improvement and even some more free space.  It is imperative that you backup your iPhone or iPad before updating to iOS 10.3 !!

MacOS 10.12.4 is a more mundane update that also contains important security updates.  In addition it brings Night Shift to change screen colors in the evening that will be less disturbing to your sleep.  Set this up in System Preferences > Displays > Night Shift (tab).  It is still important to backup your Mac before this or any other update.

I have also updated the “Help” section of my website and I have added instructions to how to properly update your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
