SIERRA IS THE MAC’S SMARTEST, MOST POW­ER­FUL OPER­AT­ING SYS­TEM EVER. NIK RAWLINSON SHOWS HOW ITS MANY NEW FEA­TURES CAN HELP YOU BE EVEN MORE EF­FI­CIENT...

TechLife Australia - - WELCOME -

FOL­LOW­ING A FEW years of tweak­ing OS X, Ap­ple seems to have hit fast for­ward with the move to macOS Sierra. It’s been heav­ily in­flu­enced by iOS, with Siri, Ap­ple Pay and a clip­board across macOS and iOS de­vices, all of which look set to make us more pro­duc­tive than ever. It’s even got a new name (macOS), which adopts the con­ven­tions of Ap­ple’s other oper­at­ing sys­tems.

Many of the built-in tools, in­clud­ing Pho­tos, Mes­sages and iTunes have been re­designed or blessed with pow­er­ful new fea­tures, and there’s a new file sys­tem on the hori­zon, too.

Back in is­sue 59, we looked at tips and tricks that help you get the most out of the new Pho­tos app, and in is­sue 61, we showed you some ways to en­hance the To­day view. So this month, we’re go­ing to zero in on the ways that Sierra can help you work even smarter than be­fore. We’ll be show­ing you how you can get more done in less time and with less ef­fort, how to stay fo­cused on your screen rather than your key­board and mouse, and how you can ben­e­fit from all of the hard work that Ap­ple has put into re­vamp­ing what we be­lieve is its best desk­top OS yet.
