WWDC 2018 is only 6 weeks away at this point and, like a clock, Apple's buzz is in full swing. However, we have not heard much about macOS 10.14, which we assume will be the next version of Apple's Mac operating system.
In addition to the rumor that macOS will somehow incorporate iOS apps, there is not much solid information to explode. Still, this is not surprising, since Apple's rumors tend to revolve around hardware, rather than software.
So, we have some space left to speculate about how it would look like macOS 10.14, when it is announced, but most importantly, what we want to see. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the deep immersion you'll find in this article. And, be sure to keep this page checked, as we will keep it updated with every piece of information from macOS that crosses our path.
Cut to the hunt
- What is it? Apple's 2018 edition Mac operating system, macOS
- When did it come out? Probably September or October 2018
- How much will it cost? macOS 10.14 is probably free
macOS 10.14 release date
At the moment, when Apple will release macOS 10.14 it is completely unknown. However, we can try to triangulate a launch date by looking back at past releases.
Since 2013 and the release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple has mocked its latest version of Mac OS during its annual Global Developers Conference ( WWDC ) presentation in early June, followed by a full launch in September or October of the same year. Apple has also done this completely free since then.
Currently there is nothing to indicate that the rate of release of macOS or the price scheme deviate from this trend.
So, that leaves us with the strong expectation that Apple will make fun of what macOS 10.14 has to offer in June at WWDC, launch a public beta test about a month later and drop the final product in September or October so that everyone can enjoy it.
macOS 10.14 specifications
Learn below Not at all about macOS 10.14, it's hard to say exactly which Mac hardware will support the next version of Apple's Mac interface. But, again, we can see the requirements of the previous year to have an idea of what to expect this year.
First, prepare for macOS 10.14 to require at least 14.3GB of hard disk space for installation, since that is what was required last year. To keep it safe, convert it to 20 GB.
Next, Mac computers that received update 10.13 should be equipped with at least 2 GB of memory (or RAM) and run OS X 10.8 or later. Last year, this is what he managed to cover in terms of products:
- MacBook (late 2009 or newer)
- MacBook Pro (mid 2010 or newer)
- MacBook Air (late 2010 or later) )
- Mac mini (mid 2010 or later)
- iMac (late 2009 or later)
- Mac Pro (mid 2010 or later)
Therefore, although these model years are rarely required change year after year with new versions of macOS, if your Mac model is older than the minimum release year, you may need to buy a new Mac to enjoy this next version of the operating system. However, wait until these hardware requirements are published before jumping to a new Mac!
What we want to see in macOS 10.14
Every time Apple launches a new version of macOS is an opportunity for the company to improve the deficiencies of the past and to fulfill the wildest dreams of its fans . But above all, we see that Apple simply softens the proverbial edges and increases the quality of life when using the operating system. With this in mind, this is what we want to see in macOS 10.14.
iOS applications on Mac
Now that we've been rumored and informed so long, the idea of iPhone and iPad applications in macOS has grown in us. We're excited about the idea of continuing to work from our iPhones directly. in our MacBooks, or polish that maximum score by sitting on the desk.
However, Apple needs to know how this will happen if the odds of a Mac touchscreen computer are almost non-existent. Will the mouse or the touchpad simply replace our digits, or Apple has something smart in its core ?
Siri more active
Honestly, Siri on Mac (much less, iPhone) is as useful as the frequency with which you remember to ask for help, and even then your mileage may vary. So, we would like to see Siri on Mac start to act more as, for example, Cortana does on Windows 10.
We have already given Siri our permission to access our data, either in general Apple . Final user license agreement for macOS or when we configure the tool. So why not take advantage of that more?
A Siri that makes that reminder for you or leads you to a better deal online without your question is much more useful than having to remember that it is there first.
Greater control of the ecosystem
Frankly, Apple fans should feel more rewarded by the thousands of dollars or pounds needed to be diehard fans. A good way to do this is to open macOS to control and manage other Apple devices with the Apple ID of a particular user.
Imagine being able to see the storage of your iPhone and manage it from your Mac, for example. Or, on a related note, triggering an App Store download on your iPhone from your Mac, before or after creating space for it from macOS. It's a small thing, but that possibility would help keep the fans feeling rewarded for leaving, Apple, so to speak.
