macOS is an advanced desktop operating system that now powers millions of MacBook machines out there. Apple’s Mac operating system is getting better and smarter every year when Apple releases new software updates. Last year, the Cupertino company announced macOS High Sierra (macOS 10.13) to the public after months of beta testing.
macOS High Sierra was not a huge improvement over the operating system. However, when we look inside, there are a lot of new things that make your daily tasks even better and quicker. macOS High Sierra is nearly one year old, and we have started to hear a lot of rumors regarding its successor.
The next version of macOS will make its debut at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Last year, the Cupertino company announced macOS High Sierra at the event, so it seems that Apple will do the same this year.
Rumors regarding the next version of macOS have been out there for months, hinting at the impressive features coming into macOS. In the section below, we have created a list of exciting features we want to see in macOS 10.14.
When will macOS 10.14 be released?
Apple has a long-time tradition of debuting new software updates at its annual WWDC event. Last year, the company announced macOS High Sierra, a small and welcome macOS upgrade. Basically, macOS High Sierra brings in refinements to the existing features, while speeding up performance.
Tech experts say that macOS 10.14 will make its debut at this year’s WWDC event in San Jose, California. In reality, Apple has started rolling out invites to world press for its keynote on June 4. The company recently confirmed that they will live stream the event across all devices.
Sources say that the next generation macOS will be available for beta testing shortly after the event. The final build of macOS 10.14 will come out in September alongside new iPhone models.
The upcoming macOS 10.14 won’t support all Mac models. Last year, macOS High Sierra did not run on older Mac machines (2009 or older). macOS 10.14 is expected to hit more devices this year, but it is nearly impossible as it will come with premium features.
macOS High Sierra required at least 14.3GB of hard drive space for the installation. Therefore, we recommend you have the same or more storage space for macOS 10.14 this year. Keep in mind that a modern MacBook model will allow for a better user experience and a huge performance boost.
New macOS version always comes with new exciting features, while fixing bugs and errors found in its predecessors. And, macOS 10.14 is no different. Rumors say that the upcoming macOS 10.14 will include a lot of changes and features. We will help you discover how in the section below.
- Apple iOS apps for Mac
One of the best things when it comes to Apple products is that they work perfectly together. However, there are a number of apps that are exclusive to iPhone and iPad. This includes News, Health, Activity, and Home. In macOS 10.14, we are expecting to see those apps make their debut in macOS.
Besides, rumors say that Apple is planning to release an official Apple Music for macOS this year. If this comes in handy as it eliminates the need for iTunes. Besides, there will be a redesigned iTunes coming into macOS this year. Apple has not sent out updates to iTunes for months, which suggests that Apple has been working on new features.
- Better Siri
Siri is Apple’s advanced personal helper, offering users more options to interact with apps. Back in 2016, Apple officially added Siri to macOS Sierra, with its own capabilities specifically designed for the desktop. However, Siri for Mac is falling behind its iOS counterpart due to lack of features.
Sources say that Apple has been working on improving Siri for macOS for years. And, the company is now ready to announce what they have been up to. In macOS 10.14 update, you will be able to do a lot more things. Apple’s move aims to bring Siri in line with Windows 10’s Cortana.
- Extensive ecosystem
Apple has a deep ecosystem that allows its devices to work perfectly together. However, that does not mean that everything runs smoothly all the time. With macOS 10.14 update, rumors say that Apple will introduce a deeper ecosystem control. Sources say that users will be able to control their Apple devices under their Apple ID.
With a lot of contradictory rumors, it’s hard to tell what Apple will include in macOS 10.14. Let’s wait and see.
