The rumors of recent times were indeed true! OS X has indeed become macOS and it’s Craig Federighi, Apple’s VP, who officially announced it during WWDC 2016’s opening keynote last night. The intention of the firm is in particular to standardize the names of its operating systems. Like iOS, watchOS and tvOS, the one for Macs will therefore be macOS. Of course, the name is not the only thing that has changed!

Baptized now macOS Sierra, the future major version of the operating system for Apple computers is also accompanied by significant new features. These mainly affect Continuity, iCloud and the interface. The Sierra firmware update offers a feature called “Auto-Unlock”. As its name suggests, it allows users to unlock their Mac without having to enter a password. You will simply have to use your Apple Watch.

A new function called “Clipboard Universal” has also appeared. The latter offers the possibility of arranging space in its SSD by moving old files in the Cloud. Finally, as rumors have announced recently, Siri will now be in the game and accessible by simply clicking on the Dock icon. For your information, the first beta of macOS Sierra is already available for developers, and the final version is scheduled for this fall.
