macOS Sierra release date: New OS with Siri, Apple Pay expected this fall


At the recently held Worldwide Developers Conference 2016, Apple launched a wide array of new software for their devices across all available platforms. One of the new releases that was launched at the keynote presentation was the new macOS.

The new macOS had been long rumored to be coming to users, and after the keynote presentation, the rumors turned out to be true and the new software for Apple computers is here. The macOS is a rebranding of the current OS X software. This first and current version of the new macOS would be called Sierra.

“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.”

One of the highlights of the new software for Apple computers is the arrival of the digital personal assistant Siri from mobile devices to computers yes, from now on, with the new macOS Sierra, Siri would be ready to assist users in a wide variety of tasks straight from their computers.

Apple Pay is also now on computers via the new macOS Sierra. Now, users can use the Apple service, that had been on mobile devices for quite some time now, in making purchases and payments online in a secure and safe manner.

iCloud integration is also coming to macOS Sierra, allowing users to sync all of their files and folders from their mobile devices to their computers and vice versa.

The new macOS Sierra is now available as a developer preview via the Apple Developer Portal. A public beta would be available for users sometime around July, with a full public release this fall.
