Apple launched its current operating system macOS Sierra on September 20, 2016. Almost a year later in June of 2017, Apple gave a preview of its upcoming operating system macOS High Sierra at the World Wide Developer Conference. A launch of macOS High Sierra is anticipated to happen during September this year, as it is currently in beta testing. Apple is expected to bring new core technologies and some opportunities for developers looking to hop on the VR bandwagon.
Apple has stated that it is looking forward to improving macOS by bringing in more capability, reliability, and responsiveness. The new operating system introduces new features like VR support, high efficiency video encoding, Metal 2 for better graphics, and Apple File System (AFS) to drive data security and safety. In addition to all these features, Apple will be releasing enhancements to Siri, Mail, Photos, Spotlight, iCloud, Facetime, and Safari. Take a detailed look at the feature enhancements here.
