I have just bought a MacBook and it has El Capitan version of OS X installed on it, what I want to know is the upgrade to High Sierra worth it and is it safe? Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you, Darren

I have updated from Sierra to High Sierra and prior to that from Yosemite to El Capitan. I have had no problems whatsoever with any of the upgrades at all.

There have now been four updates to High Sierra so I think it is now reasonable to assume that it is safe.

Is it worth it? Well I have found the upgrade to be worth it but a lot depends on your needs and the other software you use.

My view, for what it is worth, is that if your device is capable of being upgraded without any ill effects then I can see no reason why not to.

I agree with Pine Man, but see this first:

After upgrades my garageband is not working :( i have to use emulator in windows system to make it run. can you tell me whats the problem is?

I have no idea what the problem is but there was another update to High Sierra yesterday so that might be worth a try.

Also the latest version of Garageband is 10.3.1. Issued at the end of June. Do you have that one?
