12 New macOS Sierra Features Worth Upgrading For

Auto Unlock with Apple Watch

Auto Unlock with Apple Watch

When you use a Mac with macOS Sierra installed your Apple Watch can automatically log you in without the need to type your password.

You'll need an Apple Watch with Watch OS 3.0 and you'll also need to log in at some time, so this is not a complete password replacement.

With this set up, when you return to your Mac after a short break you can just open the lid to wake it and your Apple Watch will do the hard work of logging you in.

    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 :/
