- Course Outline
What can your Mac do now? Just ask.
Ask Siri to do its thing while you do yours.
Siri on Mac is all about multitasking. So you can be working on one thing, like finishing up a document, and ask Siri to send a message to your coworker saying it’s on the way — without stopping what you’re doing.
Let Siri locate your files for you.
Working with files is a big part of using a Mac. And Siri makes it a snap. 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 sports schedules, Twitter results, a list of files related to your big project, and more, right in Notification Center. Everything stays up to date — so you always know where to find game times, trending topics, or important documents.
Search. Drag. Drop.
Search for images and information just by asking. Then drag results right 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 right to the grocery list on your iPhone.
Log in before you even sit down.
Automatically log in to your Mac when you’re wearing your Apple Watch. No password typing required. Need to take a quick call or step away? Get right back to work when you return
When you need more space, let your Mac 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.
