#1: OS X is now called MacOS and there’s much more to it!

This iteration of the OS X or the MacOS as it is called now will be known as Sierra and the primary focus here is going to be continuity across all devices. Universal Desktop, saving the Mac desktop to iCloud, etc. are some of the exciting features in Sierra. The best part about Sierra that had us amazed however was Siri (which will now be available) on the desktop! A really cool feature to have on a desktop don’t you think? As a leading iOS App development company in India, we are pretty excited about this!

#2: The Apple Watch is now faster and better

Did you know that watchOS 3 is seven times faster than its predecessor? Yep! It is that fast and has a whole array of updates that make it almost as good as your iPhone. Scribble (a keyboard)is another feature that lets users respond to messages and Apple Watches will now have a SoS feature for emergency help. Fitness too has been paid attention to the Breathe app that helps users meditate and track their fitness.

#3: Siri is now open to App Developers

As the best iOS App development company in the country, we have already begun planning for this! Siri being open to app developers opens a whole new range of operations such as using voice commands to search the internet for photos, calling a cab, control apps that help with your workout and so on.
