One of the new features in macOS Sequoia is 'iPhone Mirroring.'

iPhone mirroring is a feature that allows you to access your iPhone screen from your Mac. By connecting your iPhone to your Mac, you can access your iPhone screen from your Mac with just one click.

The iPhone screen is displayed on the Mac.

Use the trackpad to operate the app.

It is said that the keyboard can also be used to input characters.

Plus, iPhone notifications will now appear on your Mac.

The audio from your iPhone will play on your Mac.

While connected, your iPhone is locked and no one else can access it.

You can also mirror your iPhone on your Mac and have the iPhone itself charge in standby mode.

macOS Sequoia will include a feature that allows macOS to automatically suggest window placement on your desktop.

'Presenter Preview' is a feature that allows you to check the image and content you are about to share in a video conference before sharing it. This is compatible with apps such as FaceTime and Zoom.

Additionally, Apple's proprietary segmentation technology allows for 'background replacement' during video calls with FaceTime and other Apple apps.

And then there was the announcement of the long- rumored 'Passwords' app, an app that would let you store all your authentication information in one place.

The information saved in 'Passwords' can be used on Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Vision Pro, and can also be used on Windows with the iCloud for Windows app.

Your Passwords information is automatically synced across devices, so when you register new information on one device, it's added to Passwords on your other devices as well.

Next, let's talk about Safari.

Apple is promoting Safari as offering up to four hours longer battery life than Google Chrome.

The new feature being added to Safari 18 is 'Highlights.'

Highlight is a feature that summarizes a web page or extracts some information.

Highlights make it easier for users to find information on the web, including directions, summaries, and quick links.

'Reader' is a feature that summarizes the article the user is reading and adds a table of contents to longer articles.

The 'Viewer' is a feature that automatically displays an image front and center when it detects an image on a page.

Of course, it also supports picture-in-picture.

Next up, gaming. Metal 3, the Mac's gaming API, takes full advantage of Apple Silicon, enabling smooth frame rates even in AAA titles.

'Game Porting Toolkit 2' has been announced, which is an improved version of 'Game Porting Toolkit' that allows you to easily port games to the Mac environment using Metal 3. Game Porting Toolkit 2 has improved compatibility with Windows and shader debugging tools, and Xcode support has made it even easier to port games for Mac and iPad/iPhone.

Ubisoft's action game 'Assassin's Creed: Shadows,' set in Japan during the Warring States period, has announced that a Mac version will be released on November 15, 2024.

Many other games are scheduled to be released for Mac in 2024.

Below is a summary of macOS Sequoia's features.

The developer beta of macOS Sequoia will be available from June 11, 2024.

The public beta version will be available in July 2024.

The official version is scheduled for release in fall 2024.
