Apple announced macOS 10.12 at WWDC 2016. Major updates to the operating system include a new name after 15 years, Siri, new notification center and widgets design, auto-unlock via Apple Watch, copy paste between iOS and Mac devices through continuity and more.
Apple has continued with strengthening integration between iOS and macOS through new features like auto-unlock via Apple Watch and Universal Clipboard, essentially pulling in more users to their ecosystem. The seamless way in which iCloud, iOS, and macOS work with each other should help Apple sell more devices in the future.
The second developer beta for macOS 10.12 was released a few weeks back. A public beta is also available for users who are interested in testing macOS.
Apple also released iOS 10 beta 3, tvOS 10 beta 3 and watchOS 3 beta 3 today.
