“The newest version of Apple’s operating system, macOS Sierra, won’t drop until fall, but a public beta is open to anyone gutsy enough to install it right now,” Thorin Klosowski writes for Lifehacker.

“If you’d rather leave your Mac alone but you’re still curious about what’s new, don’t worry, we’ll take a look at all the new features,” Klosowski writes. “The landmark feature in macOS Sierra is Siri. With it, you can do just about everything you can do with Siri on your phone, combined with everything you can do with Spotlight.”

“Like its iOS counterpart, the Photos app on Mac is getting a handful of organizational improvements. The big new trick here the intelligent search feature,” Klosowski writes. “Photos scans all your images and identifies objects, which makes it so you search for specific objects in an image, like a duck, car, birthday cake, or whatever else. Photos also adds three new albums: Places, which maps where all your photos are taken, Faces, which identifies people, and Memories, which automatically creates special slideshows based on people, places, holidays, and more.”
