Wacom Tablet Users: Hold off on upgrading to macOS High Sierra!

If you’re a Mac user and rely on your Wacom tablet, you may want to hold off on upgrading to Apple’s latest operating system – macOS High Sierra. According to Wacom, the current Wacom driver for macOS Sierra (Apple’s previous generation operating system) is not compatible with macOS High Sierra (Apple’s latest operating system). Wacom is working on a new compatible Wacom driver for macOS High Sierra and expects it to become available by late October.

Wacom posted the following statement regarding Wacom driver compatibility with macOS High Sierra:

“Apple has released 10.13 High Sierra on September 25th. Wacom is currently working on a new driver update to support the new operating system. The new Wacom driver will be ready by late October at the latest. Due to nature of the changes in High Sierra, the existing Wacom driver for 10.12 will not work. To continue to use your tablet uninterrupted, Wacom suggests not to upgrade to 10.13 until the new driver is released.”

If you’ve already upgraded to macOS High Sierra and are experiencing compatibility issues with your Wacom tablet, hang tight! Wacom is working on it!
