It can not be denied: macOS Sierra is much better than its previous versions. For most of us this has worked seamlessly and I personally think it’s the best macOS by Apple so far.
Although users have also reported many problems, while upgrading to macOS Sierra. In today’s post, I will talk about some of these issues and their fixes. I hope that will help you a lot.

Then, turn it on and press Shift when you hear the startup sound. When you see the Apple logo, release the Shift key and you should now see the safe mode screen on your Mac.

# 4. iCloud error and authentication problems
Some features of macOS Sierra only work with iCloud and during the installation process it prompts you to enable these applications such as Storage Optimization and iCloud Documents & Desktop. If you skip this step, an annoying problem starts to appear from time to time – Authentication problem or iCloud error
If you see an error such as « iCloud login error », disconnect from the iCloud, restart the Mac and try to reconnect to the iCloud account.
# 5. Installed applications display a ‘corrupt and can not be opened’ error
After installing macOS Sierra, this problem may begin to appear. When you try to launch an application, you may get an error message like « damaged and can not be opened »
Make sure you have the latest version of the application you want to launch, otherwise update the application. If the problem persists, completely remove this application and reinstall it.
If nothing else works, you must clear the cache. To do this Open Finder
Click « Go » in the top menu and select « Go to Folder »
Then type « ~ / Library / Caches » in the text box.
Now, delete the files from each folder and repeat the process for / Library / Caches (without the ~ symbol)
As a last resort, you can also try running the application by holding Cmd + Option Keys.
