Apple previewed macOS 12, iIOS 15 and iPadOS 15 yesterday. From MacRumors, one of the few remaining truly good Apple news websites:
Apple today announced macOS 12, which it’s calling macOS Monterey. The new version of macOS is gaining features like Universal Control, AirPlay to Mac, and Shortcuts for Mac. Apple said that macOS Monterey’s updates will help users get more done and work more fluidly across Apple devices.
And iOS 15:
Apple today previewed iOS 15, the company’s next major update for the iPhone, featuring new video calling capabilities, improvements to Messages, user statuses, a smart notification summary, and more.
and iPadOS 15:
Apple today unveiled iPadOS 15, its next-generation operating system for iPad that introduces a slew of new features like widgets on the Home Screen, an iPhone-style App Library, new multi-tasking features, and more. Here’s a rundown of what to expect.
There’s no major tent pole features or drastic overhauls – instead, there’s a lot of smaller features and new additions that really do add up to what seem like three pretty major operating system releases. There should be something for everybody in here, but I do wonder which maniac approved the new tab bar design in Safari, because that behaviour should be a crime against humanity.
Too bad, this will be the first macOS update that I won’t be able to install on my 2014 MacBook Air … at least there’s nothing really major I’m missing out on.
Ironic, “crime against humanity” is pretty much how I’d describe FF’s new Proton UI.
The best feature is supporting the 6s/SE series of phones.
Those are 6 year old phones about to get the newest iOS, which means another year of support. And likely 2 more years of security backports when they are no longer receiving the latest iOS version.
iPhones may have a price premium, but man they have a really strong return on investment.
