A Quick Recap of WWDC 2016: macOS Sierra

Yes, it happened. OS X is no more. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing. We'll all get used to it eventually. I know I already have. Now, here's what you need to know about macOS Sierra.

macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra's biggest feature is definitely Siri. Siri's appearance on the Mac comes with a few perks that weren't available in the iOS version. Siri can look up files for you, which can be a big help. This is a huge push in productivity and multitasking in macOS. Another big feature is that Apple Pay works with websites. If you buy from a compatible website, you can pay with Apple Pay. At checkout, choose to pay with Apple Pay, and use Touch ID on your iPhone or tap the side button on your Apple Watch to pay. Speaking of Apple Watch, you can unlock your Mac with it. Also, if you copy on your Mac, you can paste that on your iOS device (and vice versa) with Universal Clipboard. iCloud Drive now stores your Desktop files and Documents folder. You can easily free up space by sending irregularly used files to iCloud Drive automatically. And finally, you can use Picture in Picture to watch videos while doing other work.
