macOS High Sierra watchOS 4 & tvOS

Mac|Life - - CONTENTS -

The up­com­ing iOS 11 promises ma­jor changes for your iOS de­vices, and macOS 10.13 High Sierra will re­fresh your Mac. Find out how!

Ap­ple’s World­wide De­vel­op­ers Con­fer­ence (WWDC) de­liv­ered a quar­tet of stun­ning soft­ware up­dates that are com­ing to your Mac, iPhone, iPad, Ap­ple Watch, and Ap­ple TV this fall.

Of Ap­ple’s four op­er­at­ing sys­tems, it’s iOS 11 we’re most ex­cited about. It of­fers re­fine­ments to make things you al­ready do quicker and eas­ier to ac­com­plish, in­cludes cre­ative and fun new things to do with pho­tos and videos, and looks set to in­tro­duce a whole new class of apps and games through aug­mented re­al­ity.

It’s an even big­ger up­date on the iPad, with huge im­prove­ments to mul­ti­task­ing, and newly added sup­port for drag and drop be­tween apps.

On the Mac, the name of the next ver­sion of macOS, High Sierra, may give you an im­pres­sion that this sys­tem up­date, like Moun­tain Lion and Snow Leop­ard, is a rel­a­tively sim­ple re­fine­ment of its im­me­di­ate pre­de­ces­sor – and we have to say Ap­ple didn’t do a great job of dis­pelling that no­tion dur­ing its key­note. Since then, though, it has dis­closed a bunch of in­ter­est­ing fea­tures we think you’ll be ea­ger to get your hands on. Read about them on pages 30 and 31.

Ap­ple Watch and Ap­ple TV are also get­ting new fea­tures, of course, which are on pages 32 and 33. And if you can’t wait for the fall, see the box op­po­site for de­tails of how you can try out beta ver­sions of iOS, macOS, and tvOS.
