12 New macOS Sierra Features Worth Upgrading For



Messages Upgrades in macOS Sierra

Messages Upgrades in macOS Sierra

Just like with iOS 10, Messages gets a facelift in macOS Sierra and also gains new features.

Emoji are now bigger in the transcript than on OS X El Capitan and you can send tapbacks, small reactions to messages without typing something new. This is like a Facebook reaction in a way.

Videos now play in inline and you can see link previews inside conversations. It does not look like Apple is adding in all the iOS 10 messages features to macOS Sierra yet, which is not surprising.

    How about performance, battery life and app compatibility?

    Sometimes, you should just elave things alone…I cannto even download my pictures from Iphone to the MacBook Pro… Apple should have done a better job with this one…

    So… a bunch of features that either a) I would never use or, b) have been using in Linux since the early 2000’s. Bravo Apple for becoming the new Microsoft… at least 15 years behind.

    I have been debating back and fourth to upgrade my iMac 2013 to Sierra…. Some of the apps I use no longer support Yosemite but I have found replacements for them…. other than the apps no longer support yosemite, I can’t think of another reason to really upgrade :/
