MacOS Sequoia brings iPhone Mirroring to Macs

Safari gets more helpful with Highlights

Apple has christened its latest macOS version as Sequoia, and it brings new collaborative and gaming capabilities to Macs. With this, your Mac can mirror your iPhone with full access to and control of iPhone directly from macOS, with the phone securely locked away. It also brings new Highlights feature on Safari for seamless information discovery on webpages while browsing. A new Passwords app serves as a vault for all your passwords.

MacOS Sequoia brings Apple Intelligence, a personal intelligence system for Mac, iPhone, and iPad that integrates generative models with personal context, but without compromising on data privacy. The redesigned Reader presents a distraction-free and more informative view of articles with summary and table of contents for longer articles. Videos on pages are highlighted at the centre with full access to playback controls including picture-in-picture.

With the current lineup of Macs offering ray tracing and other advanced features to gaming, there are more gaming titles coming your way, including the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed Shadows. The impressive lineup will utilise the power of Personalised Spatial Audio and MetalFX Upscaling in the latest Macs. For developers, Apple has prepared version 2 of the Game Porting Toolkit, making it easier to bring advanced games to Mac, iPhone and iPad.

New capabilities in video conferencing include a new presenter preview, which works with apps like FaceTime and Zoom. Now users can apply beautiful built-in backgrounds, including a variety of colour gradients and system wallpapers, or upload their own photos.
