Bringing Siri to the desktop is a big win for Mac users, but that’s not the only thing Apple added to the newest version of its desktop operating system. OS X also received a name change to macOS, and this version will be known as Sierra. From better continuity between your phone and Mac to Apple Pay and picture-in-picture, these are the top features of macOS.
This much expected feature finally got announced at WWDC, bringing Apple’s snarky digital assistant from the iPhone to desktop. Just like on iOS, you can ask Siri to do things like get directions, create a playlist or look up something on the web. It will keep a running list of the conversation, so you can reference back to previous things it said. Apple also opened a Siri API to developers so the smart assistant may be about to get a whole lot smarter.
While it’s not as snazzy as Microsoft’s Windows Hello facial recognition tech, Apple’s new auto-unlock feature will let you skip typing in a password by unlocking your computer with a nearby Apple Watch or iOS device using what Apple calls time-of-flight networking.
