On July 7th 2016, Stephanie Milot wrote an article for PC Magazine talking about the new MacOS Sierra. According to the article, Milot says that the MacOS Sierra has released a public beta version on the day of the blog release, July 7th 2016. Not only is this release open to developers for Apple, but ths MacOS Sierra is also open to the public for beta testing to those who sign up for the program.
MacOS Sierra also have a new Siri keyboard shortcut and an auto unlock for Sierra. In order to use the Siri shortcut, you would need to push the command+space hold. The auto unlock is currently only being used by those who also use an Apple Watch.
Other features include telling Siri to locate files, search for information, spell words, find weather, and schedule plans. Users will also be able to use ApplePay with their computers. There will be a universal clipboard in which an Iphone can copy a link and be copied into a cloud clipboard which can then be pasted by a computer.
Because the next generation OS is still in beta, users should expect that some applications will not be performing at its maximum capabilities until the beta is over. In order to not ruin the experience in the event that something does not work correctly with your computer, Apple encourages that users also back up their system. Milot throws in her own advice and suggests that users could also use a secondary Mac that you don’t use on a regular basis in order to try out the MacOS Sierra.
