Sierra Installation

Install went fine on my iMac 5K, and all of my frequently used apps work without any problem.

I did have to manually upgrade my Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps though.

The most noticeable difference so far is the new Mac Photos app, which is very similar to the iOS10 Photos app.

And, of course, another noticeable difference is having Siri available. (using a small icon in the Finder menu bar)

Here is a link to an Apple video on what else is new in Sierra: http://help.apple.com/macOS/Sierra/WN/? ... S#/siri-WN

Yup, no problems here either with the download, install, and the use of installed programs. But the download is 4.6GB is size so depending on the speed of your I'Net connection it might be easier letting it download overnight and then do the install the following morning.

Yes, those appear to be separate downloads. And as is not uncommon, App Store is wonky. It kept restarting the downloads of Pages and Keynote. Then it suddenly showed Numbers as installed and the button turned to Open. But that opened Numbers 09. It showed Safari 10 as an available download until I restarted App Store. I think this is all related to our DSL being slow.

I've experienced two cases (on two iMacs) where App Store was misbehaving, and one instance of iTunes misbehaving. In all three cases, a Mac restart seems to have fixed the issue.

You should not have to restart again after an OS install, but it seems to have helped me.
