Do some homework first.


Verify that all off the apps that you use and depend

on are compatible with High Sierra. Especially if you

depend on them as part of your job. Too many posts here

complain about a macOS upgrade breaking their needed

apps and bringing their business to a standstill when all

they needed to do was a few minutes of research. There

may be upgrades or updates to those apps that are

compatible and you may have to pay for them, another

consideration.


The above also holds true of any third party hardware that

you may be using.


And above all else, always, always make backups of critical

data before doing an upgrade. Actually, you should be doing

this anyway as trusting your digital life to a single device is

an accident waiting to happen.

I would say no, ************* This has been the most buggy launch for macOS and iOS. I would stick to 10.12 for now as there isn’t anything you can’t do with it but the main thing is that it’s stable, but if you have to update. BACK UP FIRST

I upgraded my late 2012 27' iMac when High Sierra was released, I had a few problems for a few weeks but once High Sierra 10.13.1 was released it fixed all the problems I had.

If I were I would upgrade it just make sure you have a backup and that you check any applications you use are compatible with High Sierra.


Good Luck
