MacBook Pro vs Razer Blade Pro: stranger things have happened

macOS Sierra has landed: here’s what you’re getting

While we’re still waiting for a refreshed MacBook line, Apple has gotten the Mac ball rolling with the official release of macOS Sierra. Available as a free update, for those who already own the previous El Capitan version, of course, the latest version of the operating system formerly known as “OS X” closes the gap between desktop and mobile even further. From talking to Siri to being able to share clipboard content between Mac and iPhone or iPad, the latest version of Apple’s desktop OS is perhaps, somewhat ironically, also the most mobile.

Siri comes to macOS Sierra

Following WWDC 2016 announcements of new versions of watchOS and tvOS, Apple premiered the 2016 update to the Mac's OS X. Except, it's not called OS X anymore. Just as has been predicted, the desktop OS has been rebranded to "macOS," putting it in line with Apple's other platforms, including iOS.
