Apple says the next version of its desktop operating system, renamed MacOS, will work better with iPhones and iPads. Apple has made improvements to its Continuity feature so its is easier to pass stuff between iPhones and Macs. For example, Apple says a universal clipboard will allow you to paste text copied from an iPhone onto a text field on a Mac computer. Changes to iCloud give people more free storage (150GB), which Apple believes will allow people to sync more personal files and content between Mac and iOS devices. MacOS will also take advantage of Apple Pay, which will soon be available across the web. It will allow iPhone owners to verify purchases via TouchID on their smartphone or on their Apple Watch. Apple says a large number of online retailers are prepared to add Apple Pay support to their sites. Other new features headed to MacOS Sierra include tabbed apps, picture-in-picture support for online videos, and Siri. Siri is accessible directly from the MacOS dock, and includes search history with savable results that can be shared with others. Siri is able to handle many of the same tasks as on the iPhone, such as performing searches, sending messages, and setting reminds. MacOS Sierra is available to developers starting today, a public beta will launch in July, with general availability scheduled for the fall.
