What can your Mac do now? Just ask.
Siri makes its debut on Mac, with new capabilities designed just for the desktop. And that’s not the only way your Mac is smarter. macOS Sierra helps you rediscover your best photos, shop faster and more conveniently online, and work more seamlessly between devices. It can also help free up valuable storage space. Now your Mac does even more for you, so you can do more with your Mac.
Just like you, Siri can do great new things on a Mac.
Talk about big news. No matter what you’re working on, your intelligent personal assistant is always a click away. The handy features of Siri on iOS are now on your Mac, along with brand-new ways to help you with the things you do every day on your desktop.
Copy on one device. Paste on another.
Copy images, video and text from an app on your iPhone. Then paste into another app on your nearby Mac — or vice versa. There are no extra steps. Just copy and paste as you normally do. Found a great recipe while browsing on your Mac? Paste the ingredients straight to the shopping list on your iPhone.
Auto Unlock with Apple Watch
Log in before you even sit down.
Automatically log in to your Mac when you’re wearing your Apple Watch. No password typing required. Need to take a quick call or step away? Get straight back to work when you return.
Your desktop and Documents folder. Accessible on all your devices.
Access the files on your Mac desktop right on your iPhone. Now the files on your desktop and in your Documents folder — where most files are saved — can be automatically stored and updated in iCloud Drive, so you can always access them on your iOS devices and even another Mac.
The web. Now accepting the easier and safer way to pay.
Your Mac has always been the perfect place to sit down and do some serious online shopping. Now with Apple Pay in Safari, it’s an even faster, easier and more secure place to pay on the web — because you can check out without having to enter your credit card number. Look for Apple Pay on many of your favourite sites, then complete your purchase with Touch ID on your iPhone or by double-clicking the side button on your Apple Watch. Your credit card details are never shared by Apple when you use Apple Pay, and your transactions are protected with industry-leading security.
When you need more space, let your Mac find it for you.
Storage space maxed out? No problem. macOS Sierra can help make more room by automatically storing rarely used files in iCloud and keeping them available on demand. It can also help you find and remove old files you no longer use. So the files you’ve used most recently stay on your Mac and there’s always room for new ones.
Files you rarely need are saved in iCloud. Until you need them.
Easily get rid of duplicate and obsolete files.
Rediscover memories in beautiful new ways.
You’ve spent years capturing moments worth remembering. Now Photos can turn them into unforgettable experiences called Memories. And powerful new technologies deliver improved face recognition, display all your photos on a world map, and even allow you to search your photos by the objects and scenery in them.
Liven up the conversation.
Express yourself in fun new ways. Send a huge emoji. Respond with a heart or a thumbs-up on a friend’s message bubble. And play videos and preview links within the conversation.
Picture in Picture
Keep one eye on what you’re watching and the other on what you’re doing.
Now you can float a video window from Safari or iTunes over your desktop or a full-screen app. Play the video in any corner of the desktop and resize it to see more or less of what’s behind it. So you can catch up on your favourite programme while you catch up on email. Or watch the big game while playing a game yourself.
It’s easy to upgrade to macOS Sierra.
When you upgrade to macOS Sierra, you get new features that make using your Mac even more efficient and enjoyable. You get all the latest security and performance updates too. macOS is available free on the Mac App Store, so it’s simple to upgrade.
