American tech giant Apple has recently announced the release of macOS Sierra, the highly anticipated operating system that is packed with amazing features and improvements. While fans are focusing on Apple's flagship operating system, the iOS10, tech fans should not be overlooking the new macOS Sierra as it arrives as the world's most advanced operating system for desktops.

Initially dubbed as OS X 10.12, the macOS Sierra has officially been rolled out by the Cupertino-based company. It is now available as a free update. According to the company's official website, the new operating system will bring Apple's most famous virtual assistant, Siri, to Mac. The helpful and intelligent feature, which fans love from iPad and iPhone, will certainly give Mac fans something to get excited about. The new software will also bring along new features that are designed specifically for desktop use such as iCloud Desktop and Documents, Auto Unlock, Universal Clipboard and Apple Pay.

Apple Pay is a popular app from Apple's handheld devices. The new macOS Sierra will bring this useful tool to PCs, which will make life easier for users in dealing with e-commerce services. Once software is updated, an integrated "Pay with Apple Pay" button will show up on the browser. However, it will need a nearby iPhone or Apple Watch for fast security authentication. According to reports, if a user decides to use the Apple Pay app, a confirmation must be made through Apple Watch or iPhone by simple pressing a button on any of these devices. Unfortunately, for now, it is only available for a selected number of merchants.

Fans who were excited when Apple released the OS X 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan should love the new macOS Sierra. The new desktop operating system is not only a compilation of performance updates and bug fixes, it is a major follow up from last year's Apple software update. Stay tuned for more news and updates about Apple's latest operating system, macOS Sierra.
