The Coolest macOS Sierra features
Universal copy and paste
If you own a Mac, chances are you’re an iPhone owner as well. And with macOS Sierra, the ability for varying Apple devices to communicate with another has never been better. Thanks to universal copy and paste, users can copy something from their iOS device and seamlessly paste it into a window on their Mac. Of course, universal copy and paste works in both directions. As a quick example, Apple notes: “Find a great recipe while browsing on your Mac? Paste the ingredients right to the grocery list on your iPhone.”
Siri comes to the Mac
At long last, Siri is coming to the Mac. Now users will be able to ask Siri any type of questions they already ask when on the go with their iPhone. Of course, Siri does have some new tricks as users can ask her queries such as “Show me all the files I worked on last week.” What’s also cool is that users can pin Siri search results to the notification center. This is extremely handy if you want to keep tabs in real-time of sports scores or simply want to have quick access to a particular Siri search result.
Safari in macOS Sierra has a fun new video feature that allows users to pin a video to a corner of the display. In turn, they can get some work done while also be able to keep an eye on whatever movie, TV show or sports event they happen to be watching.
iCloud Drive is much more useful
With macOS Sierra, iCloud Drive users can now access desktop files and more on their Mac via their iOS device. The first 5GB of storage a user uses up are free, but after that, Apple’s storage tiers look like this.
- 50GB: $0.99 per month
- 200GB: $2.99 per month
- 1TB: $9.99 per month
