macOS Sierra is released in 5 days

We have mentioned several times about the upcoming Mac OS upgrade, macOS Sierra. Here we even looked at the details and new features of the new operating system. Yet for a while, we did not know when to expect it. Finally, Apple announced the date of release. The new mac operating system, macOS Sierra, will be available for download on the 20th of September.

Soon after Apple presented new iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and other new products, Apple announced the date or release of macOS Sierra on the official web-site. We remind you that the operating system comes with a number of exciting novelties and changes. Firstly, it’s the name macOS. There are multiple versions explaining why Apple decided to change the name for their OS. The domineering one claims that it was done simply to fit the line: iOS, watchOS and tvOS. Yet, the excitement is evoked by integration of Siri, universal clipboard, new iCloud features, Apple Pay and many more new features, which Apple introduced earlier this year at The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.

iCloud Drive and disk space management

One of the features we haven’t mentioned in our blog yet was the new feature in iCloud. macOS Sierra will automatically take care of the space on your hard drive. It will send the files that you haven’t used in a while to iCloud Drive. The system will also locate duplicates and offer you deleting them.

Availability

The new system will be available for download free of charge. macOS Sierra will operate on any Mac that was released in 2009 and later. However, what applications will be still compatible with the new system is unknown at the moment. For help and advice refer to us, London Apple Repair Service, Bits and PCs.
