OS X 10.12 is now available and has been rebranded macOS Sierra.

In this special release show, I walk you through some of the critical elements in making sure your installation goes well. From creating a bootable backup to doing either a fresh install or an in-situ upgrade.

Once installed, I take a look at some of the new features of macOS Sierra including the new integration with iCloud that allows you to store your Documents and Desktop in iCloud Drive, as well as some of the new features inlcuding Storage Management, Safari Picture in Picture, Application Tabs, Music & Messages.

I'll cover Auto Lock, Universal Clipboard and Siri in next week's episode.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Introduction
  • Creating a Bootable Backup
  • Fresh Install
  • Installing macOS Sierra
  • Migration Assistant
  • iCloud Document Sync
  • Managing Storage
  • Safari & Application Tabs
  • Messages & Music

During testing I found it wasn't necessary.
