Namaskaar Dosto, is video mein maine aapko WWDC 2016 ke baare mein baat ki hai jaha pe apple ne iOS 10, Mac OS Sierra, Watch OS 3, aur tv OS ko launch kiya hai, WWDC har saal hone wala ek event hai jo mostly software focussed hota hai, aur is baar bhi aisa hi hua, but yeh ekdum boring tha, iOS10, macOS Sierra, WatchOS3, aur tvOS mein kuch bhi radical aur game changing nahi mila.. I hope aap bhi meri baaton se agree karenge. Aap is video ko dekhiye aur WWDC 2016 ke baare mein aur baatein jaaniye.

    well,, i didn't have any issues to report using APFS on SSD in UnSUpported Mac, i've listen some people complaining about that, however there's many people that still use HFS in sted of APFS on SSD, they justify with incompatibility and others issues!!!!!!!
    That's weird knowing i'm running High Sierra 10.13.2 on Unsupported MacBook Late 2008 and i can use all my regular apps, iMovie/GarageBand/Logic Pro/Amplitube/Cubase/COD MW4/, etc, etc,,and most weird is that i didn't had that security problem,,

    Did you have the beta version installed? if so when you went full retail did you wipe and reinstalled from fresh? ~Trooper

    Your root, why would you need to bother changing anyone's password? Root by default has full access to the entire system

    Yet another masterpiece from my favorite channel!

    There is no way this was in place by accident. This is obviously a "back door" that was left in or an undocumented feature if you prefer… If this is truly a bug that sheds light on Apples lack of testing.

    its been downhill since Steve passed away in both software and hardware, in the last year and half I have had  to bring back iPhone 6 and 8 month old MacBook Pro 2016 and iMac 27 5k 2017 all with screen issues dead pixels in all of them. I only had the iMac for less than a month and now this security mess up, Looks like Apple is more interested in  virtue signalling to boost it  image and profits at the cost of its mantra  "It works"  it works for them profits but not for customers … remember Nokia

    Can this issue be abused over SSH remotely?

  10. Danny says:

    Is this on all MacBook Pro

  11. Björn says:

    You could still boot to recovery, open the terminal and write resetpassword to change any user's password, unless they are using their apple id password to log in. If that is the case, boot in verbose mode, remove the applesetupdone file, make a new admin and even if the other person uses their apple id to secure their mac you could turn that off from your new user's system prefs because you will be admin. That has been possible since like forever so it's not really a big deal that this has been fixed. Only way you can't do any of that is if the user locked the entire disk with FileVault, then I'll need to erase+reinstall if I want to get into the mac (though some people may already know how to get past this).

    Just press Enter and it will work for first time you try
