What’s New in Sierra?

The days of OS X—whether you pronounced it “10” or “X”—are over. Apple’s operating system now goes by macOS, in keeping with its cousins on the iPad and iPhone (iOS), on the Apple TV (tvOS), and on the Apple Watch (watchOS). macOS 10.12 Sierra improves upon and adds to the big changes OS X 10.11 El Capitan brought us.
