What’s new in macOS Sierra?

Apple releases major macOS upgrades annually, bringing hundreds of new features to your Mac. Apple’s tight integration between hardware, OS & apps means it’s vital to keep up-to-date. Upgrades are free, and most users upgrade quickly. You’ll need to have the latest macOS to use many new business & creative apps, as well as full compatibility with iPhone & iPad.

macOS Sierra 10.12 takes the Mac to the next level. Siri finally comes to the Mac, and in a big way. Search the web and your files, adjust settings, create reminders & calendar events and more. Secure Apple Pay is available on many websites… just verify with your iPhone’s TouchID to complete your Mac’s transaction. Sierra can sync your entire desktop & documents folders between Macs, iPhone & iPad. Copy something on your Mac and paste it on your iPhone or iPad with Universal Clipboard. Looking for pictures of your spouse taken in the mountains? The Photos app gains a sophisticated search system that identifies not just people but objects. One of the most useful features is a new Storage window to help you identify why your drive is full and simple one-click ways to fix it. Enable Optimized Storage and Sierra can offload some of your seldom-used music, videos, pictures and other documents to iCloud. They still show in the Finder and apps, and the moment you select one, Sierra downloads and opens as if it were always there. Picture-in-Picture lets you watch a movie that floats above your other windows. (There goes productivity!) All apps now include Tabs like Safari so you can reduce window clutter. Sierra is filled with little refinements like these, and it’s a free upgrade for every Mac user.
