Apple announces macOS Monterey, the next Mac desktop operating system

At WWDC on Monday, Apple unveiled its brand new Mac’s Operating System – MacOS Monterey. Successor to MacOS Big Sur, it packs new features like Universal Control, that will allow Mac users to use a single mouse and keyboard to move between your Mac and iPad for a seamless experience.

It also includes AirPlay, and a redesigned Safari browser with higher sync functions between devices. The OS also brought in several of the brand new functions determined in iOS 15, like spatial audio in FaceTime and Apple’s new Focus feature.


Safari now has a new tab bar that takes at the shade of the website and combines tabs, the toolbar, and the search bar into a single compact layout. Tab Groups offer a brand new manner to effortlessly save and manage tabs. Tab Groups additionally sync across Mac, iPhone, and iPad, so users can retain their work from anywhere and without difficulty share tabs with friends and family.

Notes App redefined

The Notes App has additionally been redefined to help users stay organized, collaborate, and create notes from anywhere. The latest addition is Quick Note — a new way for users to write down notes on any app or website systemwide. Users also can add hyperlinks from an app to their Quick Note to create context, even on a website in Safari or an address in Maps.


For the first time, the Shortcuts app will be made available on MacBooks with macOS Monterey. Apple stated that this can be a part of a “multi-year transition”, which means that that new features might be brought to the Shortcuts app over the year.

MacOS 15 finally packs a lot of features from the iOS 15 like the redesigned FaceTime, notifications, and SharePlay. The release will likely be this fall in september.
