Apple announces macOS Sequoia at WWDC 2024


Apple officially announced macOS 15 Sequoia at WWDC 2024 on Monday, with iPhone mirroring, Continuity updates, automatic window tiling — FINALLY — and a cross-platform Passwords app. The developer beta is available today, with public betas this month.

One of the first features coming to the OS is iPhone mirroring, which lets you control your phone from your Mac. You’ll get phone notifications on the Mac as well as audio passthrough. Finally, a non-touchscreen interface for your phone! When using mirroring, your iPhone stays locked, and even in StandBy mode.

Apple also updated Safari with a bunch of new features, including highlights — which use machine learning to detect interesting things on the page, and additions to Reader mode, including summaries and tables of contents, presumably also generated with machine learning. It also has Viewer mode for on-page video content.

The Keychain is getting a major update, with a new cross-platform Passwords app that can store many new types of account credentials, including Wi-Fi passwords, passkeys, verification codes, and shared passwords. It’ll be available on iOS, iPad, Mac, visionOS, and Windows.

Apple is finally bringing automatic window tiling to MacOS Sequoia, potentially sherlocking a bunch of utilities we never should have needed in the first place.

The company had a couple surprise gaming announcements
