You’ll then learn about iCloud administration, including techniques for restoring deleted files from iCloud and disabling iCloud entirely. Next, learn about working with local storage and the new Apple File System (APFS), which—once released—will provide a unified storage solution across macOS, iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. Then find out how to monitor macOS Sierra using the new console, unified logging system, and commands for collecting, searching, and debugging logs.
