|I've been using Apple products since 2003, starting with the iBook G4. Since then, it seems as if Apple's software quality has steadily gone downhill. My iBook wasn't the fastest, but it was certainly the most steadfast and predictable Apple computer I've owned.|
Now, on my 2017 MacBook Pro running High Sierra, I get random freezes, slow/failed wakes from sleep, kernel panics, strange APFS behavior, trackpad unresponsiveness, etc.
iOS 11 is even worse, freezing during calls and sometimes keeping calls active even when the display shows no trace of an active call.
What gives? What, internally (to Apple), causes this?
