As with other things, we also expected Apple to announce the new version of the macOS however we were not made aware that it would have a name of its own – the macOS High Sierra. At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) held today, the company unveiled this new software development and it promises some spectacular features for the macOS supported machines.
The macOS High Sierra is bringing change to the built-in Mail application as well. Now the app will use less space on your machine for storing your mail. Another application that has received special attention is the Photos apps that will use the latest techniques to identify faces better and improve sorting.
Apple is also replacing the Heiarchial File System with its own File System (APFS) that the company claims is more secure and safer as well as faster. This file system is a 64-bit system with built-in crash protection and instant directory cloning.
The new macOS High Sierra is also bringing good news for gamers with incredible VR support with the company working closely with Steam, Unity and Unreal. The new operating system will now have HEVC support. Apple has also announced Metal 2 which is the latest version of its graphics rendering framework and can now access external graphics as well as offer VR support to the macOS.
Like the iOS 11, macOS High Sierra will be made available to the public this fall but the beta version will be available later this month.
