Siri makes its debut on Mac, with new capabilities designed just for the desktop. And that’s not the only way your Mac is smarter. macOS Sierra helps you rediscover your best photos, work more seamlessly between devices and free up valuable storage space. Now your Mac does even more for you, so you can do more with your Mac.
Let Siri locate your filesfor you.
Working with files is a big part of using a Mac. And Siri makes it a breeze. Can’t remember where you saved that report? Ask Siri to search for the documents you opened this week, then refine your results to just the ones with the word ‘annual’ in the title.
Keep Siri results where you can always find them.
Pin Twitter feeds, notes, a list of files related to your big project and more, right there in Notification Centre. Everything stays up to date — so you always know where to find trending topics, your to-do lists or your important documents.
Search. Drag. Drop.
Search for images and information just by asking. Then drag results straight to a window on your desktop. Drop an image from the web into a Pages document to make it pop. Or a Maps location into an invitation to get your party started.
Copy on one device.Paste on another.
Copy images, video and text from an app on your iPhone. Then paste into another app on your nearby Mac — or vice versa. There are no extra steps. Just copy and paste as you normally do. Find a great recipe while browsing on your Mac? Paste the ingredients straight to the shopping list on your iPhone.

When you need more space,let yourMac find it for you.
Storage space maxed out? No problem. macOS Sierra can help make more room by automatically storing rarely used files in iCloud and keeping them available on demand. It can also help you find and remove old files you no longer use. So the files you’ve used most recently stay on your Mac, and there’s always room for new ones.
Files you rarely need are saved in iCloud. Until you need them.
When you need more space, Optimised Storage makes room by storing infrequently used documents, email attachments, photos and previously viewed iTunes movies in the cloud. You can easily find every file exactly where you saved it. Just open it up and download the original as if it was always there. Files you’ve used recently remain on your Mac, along with optimised versions of your photos, so you canwork offline.
Easily get rid of duplicate and obsolete files.
macOS Sierracan keep unneeded files from cluttering up your Mac. It prompts you to delete used app installers, and clears out duplicate downloads, caches, logs and other unnecessary stuff. You can also easily find and delete large apps and files, or ones you simply don’t use. So you can be free of clutter. It can even get rid of it for you, deleting items that have been in the Trash for 30 days.
