I hate Apple! Nothing new there, but it is the reactions of the apple-fan-boys that amazes me most.
I watched in horror as perfectly working and in use Mac book rebooted without warning restarted and then installed the 10.13.4 update. The reboot then rendered the external screen blank.
There are few people having this issue, 1100+ and counting
. It is not just affecting DisplayLink, Apple forum
The scary thing is that this was reported by a large number of testers well over a month before the general release of 10.13.4 and Apple just let it go through. The response from fan-boys was that because DisplayLink was using undocumented hacks they should not be surprised. Except they are not, many years a ago they did have to try some odd hacks to get iOS drivers to work but that is for iPad and phones only. And the little matter that ALL the external display manufactures are affected.
Why has Apple not dealing with this? Easy, they can sell overpriced Thunderbolt displays that do work. Forget all those users with spare HDMI and DisplayPort monitors. In that thread
are companies with hundreds of Macs all with unusable displays!
Oh, and the other thing is you can just not upgrade
to 10.13.4 or rollback, ignoring the risks and the fact that Apple installed it WITHOUT WARNING!
When PCs rebooted without warning, to install Windows 10 Slashdot article
the user base went mad. Apple support forum responded with "It's your fault for not setting the update settings". Except the update settings say nothing of reboots/restarts.
Back when iPhone 6 first released I spoke with an owner and while we chatted it rebooted without warning. The brushed off the issue with "it keeps doing that". Speech-less
Apple are not just bad, they are beyond evil. The list of failures just goes on and on and on and yet people keep buying their overpriced and heavily restricted rubbish.
Did you see the current news about a single piece of dust being able to render their most expensive new and shiny keyboards not just useless but unfixable?
on and on and on on on.
