At the WWDC 2016 event, Apple has officially announced its next set of software upgrades for the MacBook and iOS devices. Apple finally confirms the new name of their desktop operating system as the macOS Sierra, scheduled to roll out later this year.
One of the biggest features of the macOS Sierra update is the integration of Siri, Apple’s popular voice assistant that has been a part of iOS devices for a very long time. The debut of Siri into the desktop platform is a first for Apple. Users will be able to search for files and folders, and other queries that Siri traditionally support.
You can also activate other services, such as music. Siri will also allow to pin all your queries and other information that’s related to your work, such as schedules, Twitter feed-all in the Notification Center. The company has also introduced Apple Pay in Macs for the first time, with macOS Sierra.
“macOS Sierra is a major update that makes your Mac smarter and more helpful than ever with improvements to the apps you know and love and great new features throughout,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “With macOS Sierra, you can get information, find files and multitask using Siri, access your Desktop and Documents from anywhere, copy and paste between Macs and iOS devices, and rediscover precious memories in Photos.”
