Following on from a couple of software screw-ups this week, Apple has said that it would review its development process. Over the last two days, two incidents have occurred, with a security bug easily allowing admin access to macOS High Sierra systems. A patch was issued but this in turn broke file sharing on macOS High Sierra.
Considering that most Mac systems cost north of £1000, customers weren’t exactly happy that these issues were popping up. In a statement given to Reuters, an Apple spokesperson said: “We greatly regret this error and we apologize to all Mac users. Our customers deserve better. We are auditing our development processes to help prevent this from happening again.”
The spokesperson added that “security is a top priority for every Apple product” and that the company regrets ‘stumbling’ with this latest macOS release. With that in mind, Apple will now be reviewing its software development practices and will hopefully make some necessary changes to ensure there are better checks in place for macOS.
KitGuru Says: It sounds like Apple has taken criticism from the past couple of days on board. Now we just need to hope that similar issues don’t arise again in the future.
