macOS Sonoma Beta Officially Launched with More Personalized New Features

macOS Sonoma Beta launched with personalized new features

【phoneauto News】On July 13th, macOS Sonoma public beta was officially launched. Compared to the previous developer beta, the public beta is aimed at a wider range of general users. Users can simply participate in the Apple Beta Software Program on the Apple official website to upgrade to the latest macOS Sonoma.

macOS Sonoma brings a series of rich features, greatly improving the user experience of Mac. First of all, this latest macOS Sonoma introduces lock screen wallpapers featuring slow-motion videos from around the world, such as the vast skyline of Hong Kong, the sandstone hills of Monument Valley in Arizona, USA, and the undulating hills of Sonoma County in Northern California, among others. Its experience is similar to tvOS, where it will be displayed as a dynamic desktop in daily use, and after logging into the system, the dynamic content will smoothly transition into a static desktop wallpaper.

In addition, macOS Sonoma also introduces new desktop widgets. Users can place widgets directly on the desktop and interact with them with just a light touch. Moreover, you can also access the widgets on your iPhone directly from your Mac without installing the corresponding app. And when you open an app or window, the widgets will automatically fade into the background, allowing users to focus on the current task without being distracted by cluttered desktops.

macOS Sonoma also brings enhanced video conferencing features. During video conferences, users can use the speaker stack feature to place the speaker on top of shared content to highlight the speaker. The small-sized stack will make users appear in a floating bubble on the shared screen, making it more convenient for users to showcase their work content. It can also be freely moved on the screen to highlight important points for everyone.

In order to meet the gaming needs of players on Mac, Apple has also brought a new game migration toolkit. In addition, in Mac Sonoma, the new game mode can automatically reduce the resource consumption of background tasks by the central processing unit and graphics processing unit of Mac, and prioritize game operation. At this time, the Bluetooth sampling rate of Mac will also be doubled, which can greatly reduce the audio latency of AirPods and significantly reduce the input latency of popular game controllers such as Xbox and PlayStation.

In addition, the new game migration toolkit can simplify the process of migrating games from other platforms to Mac, saving game developers up to several months of preliminary work, and developers only need to spend a few days to preview the running effect of their existing games on Mac.

It is reported that the official version of macOS Sonoma will be officially released in the autumn of this year, and the version currently provided is the first public beta version. If you like to try new things, you can register for the Apple Beta software program on the official website for an upgrade. It is important to note that before upgrading to the new system, please be sure to back up important data to avoid data loss.

macOS Sonoma is compatible with iMac from 2019 and later, iMac Pro from 2017, MacBook Air from 2018 and later, MacBook Pro from 2018 and later, Mac Pro from 2019 and later, Mac Studio from 2022 and later, and Mac mini from 2018 and later.
