Starting today, Apple will automatically push the macOS Sierra download to supported Macs which aren’t up to date yet. Thankfully, the actual installation of the new OS will not be automatic, however. You’re still given a choice to do that when it’s most convenient for you. Clearly though, Apple’s taking a leaf from Microsoft’s book here, as that company…
