Does your processional app support macOS High Sierra?

Days ago Apple released the latest developer beta and public beta of macOS High Sierra, and this could be the last beta before the system officially launches, for which he company is currently preparing for other aspects.

According to the feedback of some users, they recently received emails from Apple that remind the professional users which version of professional apps support macOS High Sierra, and which older version will no longer be compatible.

Apple stated in emails that the lowest versions which support macOS High Sierra include: Final Cut Pro 10.3.4, Motion 5.3.2, Compressor 4.3.2, Logic Pro X 10.3.1 and MainStage 3.3.

The incompatible ones include Final Cut Studio and Logic Studio, which are 32-bit. So we guess apple is about to terminate the support for 32-bit apps.

The popularization of 64-bit apps for Mac is relatively slower than that for iOS, but it’s imminent now. Apple made it clear that starting from January 2018, any app submitted to the Mac App Store must support 64-bit, and all the purchased Mac apps and updates must support 64-bit after June 2018. macOS High Sierra will be the last version supporting 32-bit apps.

Part of Mac apps failed to launch due to expiring developer certificates

by removeos_admin 0 Comments

During the last week, some users have reported part of Mac apps failed to launch. The reason is that Apple changed the verification of the purchases and downloads that are not from Mac App Store.

A few users who download apps from the developers’ sites all reported immediate crashes on launch. Developers of the apps soon apologized and explained the issue was down to the apps’ code signing certificates reaching their expiration date.

Apple issues developer signing certificates to assure users that an app they have downloaded outside of the Mac App Store is legitimate, and this hasn’t been modified since it’s last signed. In the past, the expiration of a code signing certificate won’t influence already shipped software, however, that changed last year, when Apple started requiring apps to carry a provisioning profile.

A provisioning profile tells macOS that the app has been checked by Apple against an online data base and is allowed to perform certain system actions or entitlements. But the profile is also signed using the developer’s code signing certificate, so when the certificate expires, the provisioning profile becomes invalid.

Over the weekend victims of expired provisioning profiles included users of 1Password for Mac how had bought the app from the developer’s site. AgileBits told on Sunday that affected users need to manually update to the latest version (6.5.5), noting that those who downloaded 1Password from the Mac App Store were unaffected.

The immediate solution for developers with potentially affected apps is to renew their code signing certificates before expiration.

Mac App Store needs improvement for the purchase list?

<h2>Compared to the rapid development of iOS App Store, Mac App Store should work harder.</h2>

Since the fresh start of Mac App Store in 2010, it has made a great progress, providing Mac users with better app download experience. But that seems not enough compared to the rapid development of iOS App Store.

Due to the slow growth in the past few years, Mac App Store has lost the favor of some app developers. According to Macworld, the purchase list on Mac App Store needs to be more user-friendly. Although it’s easy to buy an app, it’s quite inconvenient to find your purchased apps especially on a new Mac computer.

We know that there is a “Purchased” tab on the Mac App Store, where all the purchased apps are listed in reverse chronological order. But if you try to search an app in the upper right, it displays the results from the whole store instead of the purchased.

Another practical feature of Mac App Store is that you can hide the purchased items in case you don’t want to see them. Generally, when you’re checking a purchased app (removed), you won’t see the price but an “Install” button. Yet when you want to reinstall a hidden app and search for it, you will see its price, that way you may forget you have purchased it before.

Additionally, either Apple itself or developers can remove their apps from the Store anytime, and this will prevent users from reinstalling the app, even though they have bought it.

All the time there are complaints about Mac App Store. When shall we see the improvement?
