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...
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.
