  • It looks like ALL apps that come preinstalled with macOS High Sierra are protected. I’m glad this doesn’t extend to Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and iMovie. Sometimes, I remove these apps when my customers request to have them removed. Of course these don’t get reinstalled when we do a clean install of macOS.
