Yesterday we heard that Apple was changing the name of their desktop OS for the Mac from OS X to macOS and the next major release of the software will be called macOS Sierra.
The new macOS Sierra will bring a range of new features to the Mac, one of the major ones is the addition of Apple’s voice activated assistant Siri on the Mac.
“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.”
Apple have released a beta of macOS Sierra for developers they will also release a public beta of the software in July. We are expecting the final version of Apple’s new desktop software to be released some time in September or October.
