macOS Sierra
This major update brings Siri to Macs, also delivering improved sharing and optimization in iCloud, enhanced messages, Apple Watch unlocking for Macs, and more.
Codrut Nistor,

After some time spent in various testing stages, the latest major release of Apple's desktop operating system is finally reaching the market. Known as macOS Sierra, it is now available as a free update from the Mac App Store.

Being a major update, macOS Sierra delivers more than just minor tweaks and fixes. These are its highlights:

  • Siri on Mac - send messages and email, find documents, change system preferences, search for files or online information, and more
  • Tabs across Mac apps with multi-window support, including Maps, Mail, Keynote, as well as third-party apps
  • Memories feature in Photos - automatically creates curated collections
  • An Apple Watch can be used to unlock a Mac
  • Universal Clipboard (a Mac computer can share the clipboard with an iPhone)
  • Optimized storage
  • Picture in Picture for videos from Safari or iTunes, inside a realizable and movable window
  • Apple Music in iTunes

While some features might not be available depending on region or language, macOS Sierra works with all Macs introduced since late 2009. As mentioned earlier, it is available as a free update that can be obtained from the Mac App Store.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
