Safari is one of the second most used browsers worldwide, following Google Chrome with almost 13.9% of the market share as of November 2018. Many macOS and MacOS X users prefer this browser as it is developed and designed by Apple and always works well with the operating system. Unluckily, the web browser is not at all protected to the problems and shows a message which says, “Safari cannot be opened because of a problem. Check with the developer.”
However, Apple released iTunes 12.8.1 for Yosemite up to High Sierra. The patch was slight and also allowed iTunes support the AirPlay 2 multi-room audio and HomePod stereo pairs. For Windows user, it included trivial performance improvements.
Some users who are running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 should not need to update iTunes yet, as it throws an error message on their screen; “Safari cannot be opened because of a problem. Check with the developer” error.
