Hello (again)

Mac Format - - ADS - Christ ian Hall Editor editor@mac­for­mat.com

We’re used to Ap­ple’s com­put­ers say­ing “hello”, and it’s never been more true than with the re-emer­gence of the Mac OS name ( now styled macOS). So, that means it’s good­bye to OS X, a name that’s been with us for 15 years. This year’s WWDC kicked off with a packed keynote an­nounc­ing four brand new op­er­at­ing sys­tems: macOS Sierra, iOS 10, watchOS 3 and tvOS 10. We’ve an­a­lysed every bit of in­for­ma­tion avail­able to bring you an early look at how your Mac is chang­ing, in an­tic­i­pa­tion of their full re­lease in the au­tumn.

We’ve looked at the ma­jor fea­tures for all four sys­tems, con­cen­trat­ing on the key new fea­tures of Siri, Con­ti­nu­ity, Ap­ple Pay on the web, Pho­tos, HomeKit and a Lock screen over­haul in iOS 10.

As it’s sum­mer, you’ll no doubt be tak­ing more iPhone shots than you do at other times of the year, and our guide to some of the very best third-party pho­tos apps for iOS will in­spire you to get one step closer to pro-look­ing im­ages.

Talk­ing of pho­tos, they are of­ten the media files that take up the big­gest amount of space, so our group test this is­sue looks at six high-capacity hard drives for your Mac.
