Sierra download slow for anyone else?
Posted by: josntme

Been trying to download Sierra since last night and it still says 17 hours.

Anyone else having this problem?

My download speed (acording to speedtest) is 106 MBpS so shouldn't be taking this long.

stop it and restart the download - if it's still slow, try again later

I find that DL speeds are either REALLY fast or really slow.

Yeah I had the same issue, it said 1 day 4 hours. I have pretty good download speeds at home but not as high as yours.

I've restarted for the third time and I'm back to square one. 18 hours and not counting. grrrr

I guess Apple is getting hammered.

A few other people had the same idea at the same time - hold on for a couple of days and the dl speed will return.

Wel my download speed is now showing a 215 Mbps on speedtest.com and Sierra is still going to take about 19 hours. Oh well.

Only 3 minutes here At first it said 11 minutes, but then it went speedy gonzalez.

But I'm waiting with the install until I hear from some of you suckers first.

Is there any reason to rush into downloading it?

I opened App Store there was an update listed and it was Safari 10.0 so I installed. Quit App Store and reopened it and in the upper top left of Our Favorite Mac Apps was macOS Sierra. Clicked on that icon and took me to the Download area. Clicked on Download, took 25 minutes. Quit the Installer and it is now in my Application Folder. My speed is 50/20 so certainly not as fast as some have.

Huh? Thought this thread was about download speed... and also not being able to find Sierra.

That's b/c it is a POS. The App Store not your MacBook.

I Agree!!
I now open App Store Click on Purchased,
Sierra is Not showing up.
El Capitan shows Download, which is installed and in the Installer is in the Applications Folder
Yosemite shows Downloaded and grayed out
Mavericks shows Downloaded and grayed out

IIR I can remove Yosemite and Mavericks from the Application Folder and they will then show up as Downloads.

Crazy...

Shouldn't Sierra, that you have not purchased or downloaded yet, be in Featured ?

Edit: May be I misunderstood you billb. Yes it is listed on the right now, but wasn't earlier.
